A sales center and one show flat opened this month to present Giorgio Armani’s high-end Armani/Casa Residences project in Miami. Dominant colors are green, blue and sand, enhanced by rare materials such as parchment, white gold leaf, glazed linen, wood in light shades and onyx flooring.
In a partnership with Dezer Development and The Related Group, Armani’s luxury residential units, common areas and amenities are part of a project that was first reported in July 2014.
Architect César Pelli, creator of the World Financial Center in New York and the Petronas Twin Towers in Malaysia, has designed the 60-story oceanfront tower in Sunny Isles Beach, north of Bal Harbour, with 308 luxury apartments. The development is influenced by Art Deco. On the ground and first floors, the Armani/Casa design studio has created the bar, private rooms, spa, gym, kids room, cigar room, wine room, game room and theater. The apartments are also furnished by Armani/Casa.
“It was a real challenge to interpret the light and architecture of Miami, with its strong Deco influence that is continuously updated,” said Armani. “Armani/Casa not only expresses my aesthetic sensibility as applied to interior design, but it also immerses it in the geography of the location and its surroundings. In what is recognizable as my style, I wanted to add a range of fresh colors and stylized designs, which create a continuous reference to the city.”
The Maçka Residences in Istanbul; The World Towers in Mumbai, India, and the Century Spire in Manila are among the Armani/Casa Interior Design Studio’s most recent projects.
