Curating the Art of Luxury
Already setting the precedent for ultimate luxury in the Aventura area, Privé at Island Estates is introducing a new concept to luxury living through its “Art as Amenities” program. The two 16-story towers of Privé may appear to the naked eye to perfectly mirror each other–both offer 360-degree water views, and each has its own 10,000-square-foot fitness facility, for example. However, each tower actually expresses its own, unique identity that bursts into life the instant one enters the lobby.
Star-development team BH3 Management is tapping into the acclaimed craftsmanship of Interiors by Steven G., its accomplished designer Julia Chi, and Manhattan-based curator Kipton Cronkite to give residents a taste of the New York art world, creating the life narrative for each tower through a selection of carefully chosen artworks by prominent artists around the globe. The two collections will be distinctive to each tower, while complementing each other when taken as a whole. A few select pieces may change periodically to show the unique yin-and-yang relationship that can only arise through close collaboration and creative thinking by all parties involved.

In addition to enjoying exquisite works of art in their lobbies, Privé owners will gain exclusive access to hire Kipton Cronkite as their personal curator for their own private collections. Cronkite, known as the cupid of luxury spaces and the one percent, will take time to get to know each individual’s personality and taste in art before providing an immersive, one-on-one consultation for their private residence.
For an additional touch of sophistication and grandeur, residents can also hire interior designer Julia Chi from Interiors by Steven G. to work hand-in-hand with Cronkite and create a cohesive energy flow throughout their home for a one-of-a-kind luxury living journey that only a select few have the privilege to enjoy.
