Home Is Where The Art Is

April 5, 2017

 
In today’s world of luxury real estate, the amenity is king. As properties compete to make their residents’ lives as easy – and glamorous – as possible, the bar has risen so high that concierges, pools, gyms, cinemas, and spas now seem par for the course.

The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach, scheduled for completion later this year, is no stranger to the perk game – its 111 condominiums and 15 standalone villas guarantee access to all the aforementioned, plus a particularly unique feature that sets them apart from other buildings rising across the Magic City: The Piero Lissoni-designed property will be home to an art studio, where residents will be invited to express their creativity through painting, sculpture, and more.

The idea for the space came from local sculptor Tatiana Blanco: never without a blank canvas in her own home, she noticed how keen her guests were to pick up a paintbrush – and suggested the concept to The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach. “There’s an artist in everybody,” she says. “It makes me kind of sad when people are like ‘Oh, I used to do art.’ Why stop? It’s so good for you.”
