In partnership with the British automaker for Aston Martin Residences in Miami, Aston Martin has unveiled its first Aston Martin Triplex Penthouse, “Unique”. Ahead of the physical art gallery opening on the 52nd floor, an exclusive leather-bound book has been created to commemorate the special occasion. Inside the 80-page coffee table-style compendium, illustrations of the building can be found and created by globally renowned artists-in-residence.

While a virtual launch was done in 2021 with British artist and acclaimed photographer Julian Lennon, who presented images from his collection, the limited-edition book serves as a memento and collector’s item. Presented on a bespoke lectern designed by the British marquee, it resembles the shape of the Aston Martin Residences and together both form a unique sculptural piece.

The book contains paintings, sculptures, music and poetry inspired by the building it pays homage to. Some artists featured include Peter McLennan, Aaron Schwartz, Fabio Mesa, Robi Walters and Michele Utley. These creatives each shared their interpretations of what the building would be when they saw the renders.

For example, in imagining how the triplex’s upper terrace and private pool would look, artist Fabio Mesa envisioned the space to be filled with bursts of blue, white, yellow and orange. Together these colours create an epic ocean view with the sun setting on the horizon as the backdrop. He illustrated his vision through oil and acrylic on canvas.

Similarly, automotive photographer Rafael Delceggio’s vision of the luxurious triplex penthouse is one that has uncompromising design features and drives his point using a rare Aston Martin Vulcan.

Apart from just pleasing the eyes, the book also appeals to the ears as an original piece of orchestral music is played upon scanning the QR code. The stirring symphony takes inspiration from the magnificent views from the Unique Penthouse.

Germán Coto, CEO of G&G Business Developments, spoke more about the book: “Art is intrinsically linked with the Aston Martin Residences. Our owners will be able to immerse themselves in an ever-changing canvas of contemporary artwork in the gallery on the 52nd floor. The art book we’ve created contains exclusive images. It’s a permanent record inspired by the UNIQUE penthouse, and we expect it to be an object of desire for those who appreciate the unrepeatable.”

Marek Reichman, EVP and Chief Creative Officer of Aston Martin Lagonda, said: “The creation of art is one of the most important things on the planet, and at Aston Martin, we articulate the soul of our brand through art and beauty. It’s evident in everything we design, from the most beautiful sports cars to the most beautiful residences, so it’s wonderful to celebrate the UNIQUE penthouse with a new art book.”

Priced at US$59 million, the triplex penthouse has seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a wrap-around terrace on each floor, a private pool, gym, spa and custom-build garage. Access to this sanctuary is via a private elevator which travels to the top of the Aston Martin Residences building.
