Art amenities in luxury developments
Privé Island, the last buildable island in South Florida and home to two luxury residential towers, unveiled the towers’ contemporary art collection, which will adorn the residences’ two palatial lobbies. The collection is composed of masterpieces by revered artists Ross Bleckner, Shay Kun, Thomas Swanston and Matthew Harding.
The growing global enthusiasm for contemporary art in Miami inspired the blue-chip collection curated by New York-based art curator Kipton Cronkite and Miami-based Julia Chi, interior designer for Interiors by Steven G, who brought to life Privé developer Daniel Lebensohn’s art concept and vision.
Each lobby has a distinct art discipline and identity with coexisting energies that complement the surrounding natural elements, while evoking tranquil sensations through different art forms, including paintings, sculptures, musical notes and installations. The art programme, a core of the project, was created to have a profound cultural impact on the living environment and spaces — a determining factor among many home hunters.
“Art has become an essential component of luxury living, so we put together a programme that encompasses commissioned pieces by some of the world’s most renowned artists as well as up-and-coming artists that have a personal impact in the world of architecture and the world’s natural elements,” said Daniel Lebensohn of BH3.
Cronkite and Chi’s titles double as the official in-house art adviser and interior design consultant, respectively, for Privé’s residents. Cronkite is available to provide one-on-one consultations to Privé’s residents through gallery and museum visits, while Julia ensures that the residents’ interior spaces are in harmony with what adorns their walls. They both aim to learn each Privé homeowner’s individual personality and art likings to curate magnetic private spaces that speak to the homebuyer’s unique taste.
“My artistic vision for Privé at Island Estates focuses on the unique scope of the property, where each work is distinct and aligns with the impressive architecture and the geography of the secluded land,” said Kipton Cronkite, who is best known for “playing cupid” with luxury spaces and world-class art in New York City.
With both towers now topped off, Privé is redefining the Aventura neighborhood with the luxury of seclusion outlined by 360-degree views of the water and 70,000 square feet of resort-style amenities, which include a duplex state-of-the-art fitness center and spa with steam room and sauna, social entertainment rooms, private dining rooms, library, wine room, cigar room, hobby rooms, guest suites, two expansive pools and Jacuzzis, running paths that outline the island, tennis court, private pier and a private marina with limited remaining slips that can hold yachts up to 135 feet in length.
