At Quadro Miami, ‘Tis The Season To Be Artsy!
Quadro Miami Design District Condo Becomes a New Epicenter For Art and Real Estate in Miami’s Most Fashionable Design District.
Art and real estate has become one of the world’s most prominent partnerships and Miami is home to some of the greatest collaborations yet. This year, Quadro Miami Design District collaborated with Design Miami offering their exhibitors and VIPs special accommodations within their distinct designer-themed residences that come replete with curated furniture packages and amenities exclusively for short-term, seasonal, or long-term use.
The residences at Quadro are nestled in the heart of this city’s trendsetting creative hub and offers its residents and guests more than 500 custom art pieces and installations of contemporary art created by Art with DNA under the direction of artist, Francisco Del Rio. Each floor, across the 2 sleek, 12-story towers, has its own artistic theme and color to create exclusivity.
“When we started discussing art for the project, I decided to hand the entire project to Francisco, allowing him to openly create landmark pieces that would make Quadro the true connection between the Bay and the Miami Design District it is today” – said Raimundo Onetto, Principal & CEO of Alta Developers.
His installations are an ode to South Florida’s seashore, taking inspiration from the cascading waves, vivid marine life and coastal flora within reach. The main entry point makes a breathtaking first impression, welcoming residents and guests into the valet area landscaped with a lush living wall and canopy of gold-toned sculptures suspended from the porte cochère – hundreds of steel mobiles that spin as wind wafts through the breezeway, evoking the luminous movements in a school of fish. The lobby’s dramatic blue columns lead to more layers of art, each floor marked with a three-dimensional composition Del Rio painted to play up distinct color schemes representing levels of the ocean and the myriad vibrant organisms inhabiting deep waters pierced by sunrays or shaded by moonlight.
Headquartered in Chile, Art with DNA specializes in creating installations that reflect the identity of a property and its neighboring environment. Over more than a decade, Del Rio has become well known for working with a wide range of architects, interior designers and real estate developers to infuse artwork into the fabric of award-winning office spaces and residential projects across the globe.
Del Rio worked closely with Principal & CEO of Alta Developers, South Florida’s innovative real estate development firm, Raimundo Onetto to ensure the property’s artistic vision came to life.
“The greatest challenge was to develop the building’s identity, making it different, unique and letting it stand out from every other building development in the area,” said Del Rio. “Also, we wanted to create a continuous art experience for residents and visitors, giving unity to the whole building, conversing vis-a-vis with the architecture of every corner.”
“Being located in the Miami Design District we knew that art was going to play a significant role in the development process,” said Onetto.
The Design District is home to numerous galleries, prestigious private collections, and large-scale works by world-renowned contemporary artists nestled amid the lavishly appointed boutiques of the top international fashion houses and jewelers, including Fendi, BVLGARI, Balenciaga, Cartier, Hermès, Van Cleef & Arpels, Prada and Gucci. A mutual focus on original expression, bold lines and fine details guided Alta Developers as it set out to make a substantial contribution that enhances the location’s signature features.
Quadro is optimized for short-term, long-term and seasonal use in the Miami Design District where buyers can own, live and share residences that are move-in ready and competitively priced. As the first boutique condominium, Quadro’s location places owners and residents at the nexus of art, design, and culture, surrounded by prestigious art galleries and private collections, 75 lavishly appointed boutiques, 24 of the city’s best restaurants and finest day schools.
