Karl Lagerfeld’s designs for The Estates at Acqualina

Hammered metal floors, water fountains, cerulean-blue mosaic rugs, these are some of the details of the lobby by Karl Lagerfeld.


Karl Lagerfeld and The Estates at Acqualina, the ultra-luxury residential development in Miami’s Sunny Isles Beach, unveiled first images of the future lobby design on the grounds of the Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach. The rendering is for the lobby
of the South Tower, also known as 777 Via Acqualina, scheduled to be completed in 2020. A second North Tower, with a different lobby also designed by Karl Lagerfeld, is planned to be completed as well. The Estates at Acqualina is the first condominium project in the United States to involve the
iconic designer.

The lobbies of The Estates at Acqualina will ‘set the stage’ for the most prestigious and fashionable address in America,” said Jules Trump, developer of The Estates at Acqualina. “You will find precious and rare materials, delicate craftsmanship, unerringly and sophisticated style. You’ll also find unexpected and whimsical details that bring a frisson of excitement and delight.”

Karl Lagerfeld’s vision for both lobbies blend both classical architecture and contemporary art. For the South Tower, photographic images of Roman fountains and arches – taken by Karl Lagerfeld himself – will be etched into larger-than-life wall panels, ceiling screens and skylights. These
images, along with a spectacular working fountain at the center of the lobby, reverberate the expansive oceanfront views that surround The Estates. They also evoke a traditional Roman piazza, which, like the lobby, also functioned as a communal gathering place for residents.


A color palette of cerulean blue, white, silver, and gray, with pale pink hues is a nod to the Miami locale of The Estates. The floors will be hammered metal inlaid with one-of-a-kind rugs, fashioned from mosaic tile as a unique twist.

Those who purchase at The Estates will have access to the neighboring Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond Acqualina Resort & Spa, TripAdvisor’s Top-Rated Beachfront Hotel in The Continental United States and Andrew Harper’s #1 Beach, Spa and Family Resort in the World. Residents will be able to take advantage of luxurious, personalized services from the hotel including daily housekeeping, in-room dining, children’s programming, nanny and child care services, pet care, dry cleaning and laundry services, limousine service, ESPA Spa access and gourmet dining at two restaurants, Il Mulino NY and AQ by Acqualina.

When complete, each estate in the sky will be delivered furniture ready, and equipped with the finest appliances, imported stone countertops, smart-home technology and soaring ceilings. Most master suites will boast his and her bathroom suites with imported onyx countertops and walls and
marble floors, a steam mist shower, a free-standing tub, an ocean-view shower and elaborate his and her dressing rooms.

The Estates’ 5.6 acres of grounds and gardens will boast lush landscaped gardens, multiple infinity pools, a FlowRider for surfers, a basketball court, a bocce court, a dog park, soccer field, a beachfront restaurant and 502 feet of Atlantic oceanfront with Five Star beach and pool services. 24-hour valet, 24-hour security services, a full service resident concierge and a house Rolls-Royce will also be available.
