Featuring designs from fashion icon Giorgio Armani, architecture from César Pelli, and landscaping by Enzo Enea, the 56-story Residences by Armani/Casa (RBAC) is a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration. Every facet of the interior is uncompromisingly crafted by Armani, who required final right of refusal on all designs in the 308-unit project. If not deemed perfect, anything — from the custom-made slabs of Siena silver travertine to the lobby’s million-dollar gold sofa — had to be reconstructed or completely replaced.

The exterior employs the architectural feats that led Pelli to be one of the world’s most prolific skyscraper designers. The mirror-like tower is reminiscent of a  glass palace,  wrapped in two intertwined, sail-like shapes that billow and expand as they rise.  The structure provides ocean views; each residence frames the sky with floor-to-ceiling windows. Outside, the jungle-inspired landscaping embraces the tropical locale.

From the Judges
The judges praised the striking exterior, noting the way the building presents itself on the site and how the mirrored effect bounces light off the ocean.
