Arte, a one-of-a-kind collection of 16 exquisitely finished oceanfront residences, is the first-ever project in the United States by the legendary Italian architecture and design partnership of Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel in collaboration with Kobi Karp Architecture and Interior Design.
Arte embraces its privileged setting in Surfside, an exclusive seaside enclave celebrated for its historic architecture and wide, tranquil beaches. Every residence enjoys spectacular ocean views from private terraces that celebrate outdoor living in a warm, Mediterranean style, as well as first-class services and amenities that rival the world’s most luxurious beachfront resorts.
Nestled between the exclusive enclaves of Indian Creek, Bay Harbor Islands, and Bal Harbour, home of the legendary Bal Harbour Shops, Surfside offers the best of many worlds.
Surfside is a quiet, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood removed from— but easily accessible to—the bustling energy of Miami and Miami Beach and their cultural, culinary, and shopping destinations. Arte is the newest and most exclusive building among several prestigious luxury hotels and residences, all designed by international architecture stars who are transforming Surfside into a new American Riviera.
Additional amenities, including a rooftop tennis court, are housed in a separate building.
ARTE FEATURES AN IMPRESSIVE SUITE of luxury resort-style amenities and services. A collection of spa offerings includes a 75’ indoor lap pool with travertine decking and onyx accents, sauna, steam room, meditation pond. Fitness and recreation spaces are complete with an outdoor swimming pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio, a dedicated pet runway and relief corridor, and a rooftop tennis court. A children’s playroom, a residents’ lounge with a catering kitchen allows for entertaining and play.

DRAWING INSPIRATION FROM the classic European apartments of the 1920s and ’30s, Italian Modernist master Antonio Citterio combines architectural virtuosity with a purist sensibility, weaving a richly layered world of tactile wonder. Each highly individual residence is designed to maintain privacy between entertaining areas and bedrooms. Soaring floor-to-ceiling glass windows allow the flow of abundant natural light and frame the prized views of the Atlantic Ocean and Miami skylines. Expansive, deep terraces with Brazilian ipe decking are wrapped in travertine and offer seamless indoor and outdoor living. Wide plank 11” European white oak flooring accentuates the impressive layouts and offsets the bronze detailing and architectural travertine seen throughout.
Expansive terraces offer seamless spaces for indoor and outdoor entertaining.
Light filled kitchens feature cenere oak Poliform cabinetry, white marble countertops, and bronze accents. The cantilevered island is the centerpiece of the kitchen that is complete with Gaggenau appliances including a gas stove and full-height wine refrigerator.
“The building is designed around a Mediterranean way of life. Family life moves freely from interior to exterior. Being able to enjoy a meal outdoors with friends, enjoying the sounds and smell of the ocean—this was essential.”
Corner master bedroom suites feature private terraces and enjoy dramatic sunsets through expansive apertures.
Gracious master baths with custom oak vanities, honed white Byron marble and brushed bronze fixtures have been designed as spa-like retreats.
“The interiors reflect a European sensibility. In the kitchen, appliances are integrated into the overall design to be discreet yet highly functional. We followed the same approach in our designs for bathrooms and closets.”
Opulent master baths feature brushed bronze accents, Roman travertine floors, walls, and a sculptural soaking tub.
The discreet lobby is furnished with pieces designed by Antonio Citterio along with the entry’s centerpiece, Polychromatic Chronology 2016, by famed artist Olafur Eliasson.
ARTE'S SIGNATURE MATERIAL, used both on the exteriors and inside the residences, is a warm, richly veined Roman travertine. “Travertine is a very special stone with an unparalleled historic importance as the building material of choice in ancient Rome,” suggests Citterio. “It has a beautiful color and a very pronounced layering compared with other types of limestone.”
The façade is articulated with broad expanses of sliding glass doors and a gridded bronze Schüco window system framing spectacular views while creating a sense of privacy and security for residents.
