Karl Lagerfeld will be designing two lobbies for the ultra-luxury twin towers in Sunny Isles Beach, marking his first residential interior design project in the United States. The 82-year-old, world-renowned fashion icon has been tapped to design the lobbies of The Estates at Acqualina, a $1.5 billion project under development by Jules and Eddie Trump of the Trump Group.
Set to be outfitted with custom furnishings created by the virtuoso himself, the lobbies will wholly reflect his unparalleled style and keen eye for detail.
“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,” Lagerfeld said in a press release. “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.”
A 50-story complex poised to rise along Collins Avenue in Sunny Isles Beach, will be completed in 2020, and will feature 265 residences, ranging from three- to seven-bedroom condos. Units are priced from $3.9 million to 9 million, and up to $40 million for penthouses.
