Two things that go together flawlessly: Karl Lagerfeld and design. The famed fashion icon seems to always have his finger on the pulse of the world and knows what consumers will want, even before they know it themselves. Among his many projects, one of his newest endeavors will be to create the lobbies of The Estates at Acqualina, a luxury residential development slated to debut in 2020.
“I am excited by the opportunity to design the lobbies of The Estates at Acqualina and take great pride in knowing that the spaces I create will be such important spaces in the building. Not only are they significant because they offer the first impression of the building, they are also the spaces where people come to socialize daily; they are like a common living room.” – Karl Lagerfeld
The designer’s vision for the property is to create spaces with their own distinct personalities, separate from their hotel counterparts. With a desire to give owners a sense of Florida and the mood of the moment, Lagerfeld’s lobbies will offer a fresh and “silvery” aesthetic that will be meant to make a lasting first impression. This will be the icon’s first US venture in the world of luxury residential developments.
The Estates will sit inside two separate, 50-story towers which will include 265 homes ranging from three to seven bedrooms, all with 10-foot ceilings. The residences will come furniture-ready and will feature his and her dressing rooms in the master suites; onyx countertops, marble floors and a steam mist shower in the bathroom; and smart-home technology.
Owners will also be treated to luxury conveniences such as Wall Street Trader’s Club with access to computers, a board room and ticker tape; a full-service spa; a world-class restaurant; and a floor dedicated to amenities such as bowling lanes, a movie theater and an ice skating rink. Along with multiple infinity pools, a dog park and a resident concierge, owners will also have access to the house Rolls-Royce. The Estates at Acqualina’s condos are priced from $3.9 million to $40 million for penthouses.
