Citterio-Viel & Partners
Surfside is a luxury residential project designed by the famous Italian designer Antonio Citterio. To celebrate his first building in the US, an iconic ART sculpture by Robert Indiana will be installed at the site during Art Basel.
Located at 8955 Collins Avenue, the building is settled between the South Beach and Bal Harbour neighborhood. Set for completion in spring 2018, Arte will house 16 luxury residences with ocean views and amenities from a spa to a golf simulator and everything in between.
The layers construction of concrete and glass reflects a timeless Miami modernism, similar to the iconic aluminum sheets used in Indiana’s bold typographic sculptures, which have become timeless icons – he started the ART series in 1972 in a series of drawings which then evolved into sculptural objects. The artwork in its situ on site is a celebration of timeless and iconic design.
Citterio, who has work in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Centre Georges Pompidou, will also be turning his eye to the interiors at Arte in collaboration with Kobi Karp Architecture and Interior Design and Enzo Enea will head up the landscape design.
