Available fully furnished, the stunning waterfront estate, designed by Achille Salvagni, takes project cues from Gio Ponti’s poetic architecture and the retro-cool glamour of 1950s Miami.
Known around the world for his glamorous interiors and striking architectural gestures, Achille Salvagni seems perfectly suited for high-octane Miami Beach. The rollicking island city is the location of the Rome-born architect’s latest project: a $21 million waterfront estate. He designed top-to-bottom and decorated with a significant collection of vintage European furniture.
He aims to combine polished and contemporary lines with pops of color reminiscent of Gio Ponti and the bold architecture that defined 1950s Miami. He wanted to create an atmosphere where his clients could escape and feel like they were living the success days.
Symbolizing that aesthetic is the 8,000-square-foot home’s double-height living room, overlooking the pool, garden, and waterfront. “It is the perfect gathering place for intimate cocktails with family and friends and offers a great connection to the outdoors,” he says.
“What makes room for me is the dramatic exposed staircase with bronze details and the high-gloss blue-lacquer column with a bronze reveal. It was a great solution where I was able to turn a necessary architectural element into an artistic sculptural element.”
As with all of Salvagni’s projects, materiality was of utmost importance. To that end, he sourced all of the hard surfaces directly from Italy, including rare stone and wood that sheathes much of the interiors.
The home features brushed Negresco, Verde Alpi, and Malyat limestone, and Belgium Black marble throughout. He also used fine woods, including French polished mahogany, brushed and natural oak, and bronze.
To decorate, Salvagni not only custom-crafted many of the furnishings and lighting fixtures but also deployed a sumptuous array of 20th-century European pieces. For example Paolo Buffa, Stilnovo, Fontana Arte, Serge Mouille, Pierre Guariche, Angelo Lelli, and Marco Zanuso.
Buyers smitten with the glamorous interiors can purchase the seven-bedroom estate fully furnished—for an additional $1.2 million over the asking price.
