4701 North Meridian Avenue • Miami Beach, Florida
The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach are spread across seven acres with unobstructed vistas of lake, ocean and city. Piero Lissoni has taken full advantage of this incredible asset, and drawn the lines of each residence around its commanding views. Along with spectacular panoramas, residents are greeted with a grand kitchen that serves as the home’s hearth. Bathrooms are lined in marble and anchored by stand-alone tubs. Private decks wrapped in glass offer plunge pools to perfect nature’s vision of the outdoors. Elegant simplicity was Lissoni’s vision, and the result is masterful.
Pure focus from a master architect is what this development offers its residents. Piero Lissoni has arrived at an emotional response to his surroundings, extracting its essential elements, and enhancing them. In collaboration with award-winning Miami architecture firm ADD Inc., Lissoni has envisioned each apartment as its own concept, he has thought through every space, whether indoors or outdoors, to perfection—opening up the landscape with dramatically framed views that lead the eye to meditation gardens and beyond. He has connected inside and out so seamlessly, you will hardly know where your home ends and the gardens begin. This connection to the location is evident everywhere, from the special way the marina lines the walkway, to the orientation of the buildings on the lake, to the verdant tropical plantings that lace the property.
