Located on the golden sands of Sunny Isles Beach, Residences by Armani/Casa takes luxury living to new heights, with striking architecture, high-fashion interiors and unparalleled amenities. Featuring designs from fashion icon Giorgio Armani, architecture from the celebrated César Pelli and landscaping by the renowned Enzo Enea, the 308-residence tower is a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration that will never be replicated.
Made possible by the development expertise of Related Group and Dezer Development, this project is Mr. Armani’s first residential commission in the U.S. and his largest ever. It is also one of the final towers graced by the unique aesthetic of the late César Pelli.
The building’s exterior design follows the same architectural narrative that first propelled Pelli into fame and led him to be known as one of the most prolific skyscraper-designers in the world. The 308-unit, mirror-like tower is reminiscent of a “glass palace,” and composed of two intertwined, sail like shapes that billow and expand as they rise. Inspired by its surroundings, every vantage from the sleek crystalline tower provides the most stunning oceanfront vistas that Sunny Isles Beach offers, including numerous miles of pristine white sand.
Its interiors embody opulence through the lens of Mr. Armani, with every aspect executed by his award-winning design studio and world leader in luxury furnishings, Armani/Casa. Armani’s sophisticated aesthetic was symbolically—and in most instances—literally transported from Italy into the building for residents and their guests to enjoy.
The exclusive stylings begin in the lobby, where silk-encased walls with a tropical palm print inlay surround a million-dollar, bespoke gold sofa. Onyx, accented by white-gold leaf and bronzed trimmings, lines the building’s walls and corridors as well as custom-made slabs of Siena silver travertine and Brazilian emerald quartzite. Nearly every surface of the building is rounded and curved to complement the subtle and organic movements of the ocean that lies before it.
This attention to detail continues in the residences themselves, which were precisely envisioned as “mansions in the sky.” The units place an emphasis on light and serenity, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the Atlantic Ocean and expansive terraces with glass railings that can make one feel as if floating above the ocean.
The property’s “backyard” is a lush oceanfront expanse, landscaped by the world-renown Enzo Enea, who is revered for his ability to create jungle-inspired outdoor havens that reflect their natural surroundings. Involving the biggest names in fashion and architecture to titans of interior design and real estate, the swift success of the project is a testament to the caliber of industry leaders this tower unites. Residences by Armani/Casa is a clear-cut example of condominium success, not just in South Florida but across the globe.
