celebrated italian architect piero lissoni has completed ‘villa lissoni’ — a single-family residence at the ritz-carlton residences, miami beach. the complex is spread across seven acres with unobstructed vistas of lake, ocean and city in the heart of mid-beach, one of miami beach’s most exclusive neighborhoods.

the elegant interiors have been conceived by lissoni, incorporating natural materials and detailed italian craftmanship. the scheme features an expansive floor plan with custom designed boffi kitchens and bathrooms. the tropical setting is highlighted as floor-to-ceiling windows frame the verdant surroundings. spacious outdoor terraces, a private infinity-edge pool, and lush landscaping ensure a close connection with the outdoor environment.

the stand-alone two-story villa is the architect’s first home in the united states and seeks to capture the ‘essence of miami’s tropical climate and modern architecture’. the design serves as a model for future development on the site. upon completion, the residential complex will feature eight stand-alone water front villas each with private boat dockage.

located within the ritz-carlton residences, miami beach, the project will serve as a new model for stand-alone villas. the residential complex is designed to feel like a portofino-style village with gardens, pools, entertainments spaces and a private marina. owners will have access to a distinctive selection of amenities such as an art studio, a half-acre rooftop pool deck, a yoga studio, and a private cinema. slated for completion in winter of 2017, the one-to-five-bedroom homes will range in size from 2,000 to over 10,000 square feet and are priced from $2 million to over $40 million.
