Visionary, eclectic, iconic and versatile as few, Lagerfeld has a vision that extends beyond fashion. The Kaiser is, today, the soul of firms as recognized as Fendi or Chanel in addition to his own brand under the name of Karl Lagerfeld. He has developed his creativity as a photographer, designer, editor and as film director, getting to create a universe in which every line is perfectly under control and in which every detail has an absolute importance.
His next challenge will be to design the lobby of the two towers that will preside over the luxurious residential complex of the new The Estates at Acqualina located in the exclusive area of Sunny Isles Beach in Miami that will come out in 2020 and will be the first foray of the German designer in the interior design of a common space in the United States.
Property of Trump Group (an investment company not affiliated with The Donald), The Estates at Acqualina is being built next to the Hotel Acqualina Resort & Spa one of the most luxurious and important hotels of Miami and of the world that is part of the consortium The Leading Hotels.
The building will consist of 265 private luxury apartments spread over two towers of 51 floors, where residents will be able to enjoy public areas and all hotel services.
777 Acqualina Place and 888 Acqualina Place will have 90 floors and 160 respectively. In the first tower, each apartment will range between 4,500 and 5,000 square meters. It will have a single-family house, a suit on the top of 8,000 square meters and an attic of two floors of 15,000 square meters. In the second tower, the apartments have between 2,800 and 3,700 square meters, two suites, two double attics and two single-family houses. All of them have private pools, enveloping terraces, saunas, spa, summer kitchens and leisure areas with a collection of services and unsurpassed luxury.
The lucky owners who get to buy one of these luxury apartments will have the feeling of living on vacation. And it is precisely in this quest for exclusivity and maximum comfort, for which the Trump Group has chosen Lagerfeld to design the lobby of the two towers that preside over this residential complex.
THE ESTATES AT ACQUALINA
In the decision to extend the Acqualina brand and create The Estates at Acqualina, Trump Group wants to develop the “best residences around the world”, for this purpose they have a team composed by the most prestigious architects, designers and hoteliers to offer an exquisite life experience within a private community.
Starting with the front of the building, by the architect Rafael Portuondo, which will welcome residents before entering into the lush landscape through the majestic gateway that will give sense of security and exclusivity to owners.
In addition, The Estates at Acqualina will have the same benefits as the Acqualina Resort & Spa, one of the 97 hotels worldwide that has been honoured with important distinctions regarding the luxury hotel sector like Forves Five Star and AAA Five Diamond Hotel. We cannot forget that it was considered as one of the Top 20 in exclusive touristic destinations by the readers of Handrew Harper and it is the winner of a Fodor gold award.
FARMS AND GARDENS: A PRIVATE OASIS
The magnificence of the project reaches its beautiful gardens designed to accommodate numerous pools, a Flow Rider for surfers, a basketball court, a romantic restaurant-bar facing the beach with a vast space oceanfront to the Atlantic that will offer all the advantages of the Hotel Acqualina and its lifestyle, where residents can enjoy unparalleled sunsets in an atmosphere of absolute privacy in the south of Florida. And to amplify the experience, the services will be extended to the edge of the beach where you can enjoy food and drink services in the seashore.
INCREDIBLE RECREATION AREAS
The residential complex has dedicated more than 45,000 square meters to the creation of leisure areas such as spa, fitness centre and world renowned restaurants. In addition, there is an area called Circus Maximus, which is a complete floor with skating rink, Formula 1 simulator, a golf simulator, bowling alleys, cinemas and a space called Wall Street Trader’s Club. In short, Villa Acqualina offers entertainment for all ages and tastes, creating an ocean front lifestyle never seen before.
INTERIOR DESIGN AND QUALITY IN EVERY DETAIL
Another of the outstanding features of The Estates at Acqualina is that each house will be delivered fully furnished. So owners not only will save the cost and inconvenience, but also the year that it usually takes to set up the space for you to feel truly at home.
Each owner will have the opportunity to work with a renowned interior design firm, which will offer advice without any obligation attending to every detail and style. Its exceptional materials, like marble from one of the best quarries in the world, will also be available for you. All this to ensure that every owner has the ability to leave their personal track on the design of their home.
Karl Lagerfeld has shown his excitement about the project. He will be responsible for putting the final touch to the facilities designing the lobby of the hotel. “It is a great honour to design the most important Aqualina spaces,” says Karl Lagerfeld, who believes that “they are important not only because they provide the first impression of the building but also because the lobby is the space where people socialize every day.” And although we do not have the details of the design, Lagerfeld has declared that it will be “a fresh and silver space,” seeking the contrast with the warm Florida weather.
The vision that the Trump Group has about The Estates of Acqualina is to create a truly exceptional lifestyle, a vision that fascinates us here in Magazine Horse. All this starting from the high level on which the brand Acqualina Resort & SPA gives to this new challenge. A quality seal that expands along the southern coast of Florida and that has become an icon of beauty and luxury, ranking among the best in the sector worldwide.
