Born from a collaboration between one of the most famous design’s signature Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and the Kobi Karp Architecture & Interior Design studio, Arte Surfside presents a new concept of living spaces in the middle of the modern Miami Beach district. Minimal style, luxury and matter are the three project’s key elements that have been used to recreate the locus amoenus we are all looking for. Taking inspiration from the European apartments of the ’20s and ’30s, the architects recreated a domestic environment working on keeping two opposites together: openness and privacy.

The huge windows cover a major area of the structure’s perimeter permeating every room with natural light but, at the same time, ensuring the desired respect for privacy. The continuum between inside and outside is guided by the real protagonist of the architecture: Travertine.

Chosen for its textures, recognizable color and historical value, this natural element maintains an open dialogue between all the environments of the structure. It is within the external-internal dialogue that Exteta once again manages to create an atmosphere of absolute comfort by seeking exclusive micro environments designed for personal comfort and relaxation. – Photos Credits: Kris Tamburello
