Ritz-Carlton Residences Miami Beach: an extraordinary project in an extraordinary location
The role of our natural stone in the Lissoni-designed interiors for Lionheart Capital
The long white beaches and soaring skyscrapers of Miami Beach provide a striking frame for the crystal-clear sea that sparkles around the myriad of islands dotted between the Atlantic and Biscayne Bay.
Brimming with history and attractions that make it one of Miami’s most desirable neighbourhoods, Miami Beach is a truly unique location. It is also home to the Ritz-Carlton Residences, a luxury collection of 111 condominiums and 15 villas set in lush sprawling gardens boasting swimming pools, entertainment facilities and 36 private boat moorings.
Developed by Lionheart Capital and designed by Piero Lissoni, this ambitious property seamlessly integrates contemporary architecture into an existing environment that includes not only the sea but famous addresses such as Collins Avenue, with its iconic Art Deco buildings.
Into this fascinating blend of natural elements, history and modernity that create an intriguing interplay, the Lissoni team chose to add Salvatori natural stone, the perfect component to complete the dialogue between inside and outside, between architecture and the environment.
Every detail of the project is designed to make the most of the location. Ranging in size from 185 to 930 square metres and with a choice of 60 different footprints, the homes have between two and five bedrooms and beautifully stylish interiors. Natural light floods in through the vast windows, casting its warmth as residents wake up in the early morning and creating the perfect atmosphere in the kitchens with their stone worktops, the perfect spot for enjoying a coffee before heading off for a light run around Surprise Lake.
For us, this was a dream project, as it epitomises the synergy of nature and its beauty that we have long championed. Salvatori stone creates an infinite continuum between exteriors and interiors, bringing a sense of harmony and relaxation to floors and walls in the kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. The colour scheme reflects that of the surrounding environment, such as the beige and white of the glorious beaches that are literally a stone’s throw away and are interpreted in our beloved Silk Georgette® limestone with its wonderful waves of greige tones.
Our design philosophy is based around an understated, refined aesthetic that lends itself to creating harmonious, elegant environments. We relish opportunities to work with architects and developers around the world, pushing ourselves to find solutions to challenges and always providing products of the highest quality. Our dedication to design, integrity and availability are just some of the traits we bring to every project to help bring extraordinary designs and visions to life.
