arte’s signature material, used both on the exteriors and inside the residences, is a warm, richly veined Roman travertine. “Travertine is a very special stone with an unparalleled historic importance as the building material of choice in ancient Rome,” suggests Citterio. “It has a beautiful color and a very pronounced layering compared with other types of limestone.”

The façade is articulated with broad expanses of sliding glass doors and a gridded bronze Schüco window system framing spectacular views while creating a sense of privacy and security for residents.

The discreet lobby is furnished with pieces designed by Antonio Citterio along with the entry’s centerpiece, Polychromatic Chronology 2016, by famed artist Olafur Eliasson.
