On The Scene The Estates at Acqualina A peek at the billion-dollar residential development and Karl Lagerfeld's first interior design project The Estates at Acqualina, the new highly anticipated $1.5 billion residential development located in Sunny Isles, Florida, revealed a rendering of Karl Lagerfeld's lobby design for his first interior design project in the United States that is slated to open in 2020. Karl Lagerfeld's vision for both lobbies blends both classical architecture and contemporary art. Photographic images of Roman fountains and arches – taken by Karl Lagerfeld himself – will be etched into larger-than-life wall panels, ceiling screens and skylights. These images, along with a spectacular working fountain at the center of the lobby, reverberate the expansive oceanfront views that surround The Estates. They also evoke a traditional Roman piazza, which, like the lobby, also functioned as a communal gathering place for residents. A color palette of cerulean blue, white, silver, and gray, with pale pink hues is a nod to the Miami locale of The Estates. The floors will be hammered metal inlaid with one-of-a-kind rugs, fashioned from mosaic tile as a unique twist. "The lobbies of The Estates at Acqualina will 'set the stage' for the most prestigious and fashionable address in America," says Jules Trump, developer of The Estates at Acqualina. "You will find precious and rare materials, delicate craftsmanship, unerringly and sophisticated style. You'll also find unexpected and whimsical details that bring a frisson of excitement and delight. This is one of Mr. Lagerfeld's supreme talents, knowing how to create in a way that is both timeless and of-the-moment all at once." ML Residences at The Estates at Acqualina are priced from $3.8–9.5 million to $29 million for penthouses. For more information, visit:
