Mediterranean way of life
Drawing inspiration from classic European apartments of the 1920s and ’30s, Italian modernist master Antonio Citterio combines architectural virtuosity with a purist sensibility, weaving a richly layered world of tactile wonder. Each highly individual residence is designed to maintain privacy between entertaining areas and bedrooms. Soaring floor-to-ceiling glass windows allow the flow of abundant natural light and frame the prized views of the Atlantic ocean and Miami skylines. Expansive, deep terraces with brazilian ipe decking are wrapped in travertine and offer seamless indoor and outdoor living. Wide plank 11” european white oak flooring accentuates the impressive layouts and offsets the bronze detailing and architectural travertine seen throughout.
Nestled between the exclusive enclaves of Indian Creek, Bay Harbor Islands, and Bal Harbour, home of the legendary Bal Harbour Shops, Surfside offers the best of many worlds.
Surfside is a quiet, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood removed from— but easily accessible to—the bustling energy of Miami and Miami Beach and their cultural, culinary, and shopping destinations. Arte is the newest and most exclusive building among several prestigious luxury hotels and residences, all designed by international architecture stars who are transforming Surfside into a new American Riviera.
Arte features an impressive suite of luxury resort-style amenities and services. A collection of spa offerings includes a 75’ indoor lap pool with travertine decking and onyx accents, a sauna, a steam room, and a meditation pond. Fitness and recreation spaces are complete with an outdoor swimming pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio, a dedicated pet runway and relief corridor, and a rooftop tennis court. A children’s playroom and a residents’ lounge with a catering kitchen allow for entertaining and play.
Arte’s signature material, used both on the exteriors and inside the residences, is a warm, richly veined Roman travertine. “travertine is a very special stone with an unparalleled historic importance as the building material of choice in ancient Rome,” suggests Citterio. “it has a beautiful color and a very pronounced layering compared with other types of limestone.”
The façade is articulated with broad expanses of sliding glass doors and a gridded bronze schüco window system framing spectacular views while creating a sense of privacy and security for residents.
