Bentley Motors and Dezer Development cooperate on the debut Bentley Residences project, set to complete in 2026. The newly opened sales gallery in Sunny Isles Beach, Miami, Florida, offers homebuyers a first-hand glimpse at the world’s first Bentley branded luxury residential property. Bentley designers Brett Boydell and Chris Cooke have led the design of the project, working closely with Dezer Development and Sieger Suarez Architects.
Diamond-shaped glass panels of the building’s façade are angled to create the perfect natural light refraction. The same patterns and silhouettes can be seen throughout the building, for example, through the diamond-shaped tiles adorning the floor of the lobby. The simple diamond motif is a signature of Bentley design DNA. Each of 216 exquisitely-furnished apartments will have an individual balcony swimming pool, as well as open views through seamless floor-to-ceiling glass.
The Bentley Residences will offer a number of private and communal amenities including a cinema, a games room, a wellness centre and spa, a whisky bar, a cigar lounge and a restaurant. The design of the cinema is inspired by a Bentley car interior. Chris Cooke explains, “A cosseting sofa wraps around the back of the rear three walls, embracing residents in the space.” The games room is state of the art, equipped with VR headsets, and simulators both for golf and for driving. A whisky bar is inspired by the iconic matrix grille of Bentley’s cars. Suspended from the ceiling, it appears to be floating.
Throughout the sales gallery and the Bentley branded luxury residential property, Bentley Home furniture pieces will feature. The Bentley Home furniture range is hand-crafted in Italy and is known for extraordinary levels of craftsmanship. The pieces feature distinctive lines and mimic the materials and finishes of Bentley’s cars.
The impressive pillars inside the lobby of the building will be threaded with the vertical veins of the natural wood used, ingrained with copper dust to add a subtle, metallic finish. This technique was used in Bentley’s concept car, the EXP 100 GT. Many materials used throughout the building are locally sourced.
The new sales gallery features a full-scale Bentley speed form sculpture. Designed by the Bentley designers in Crewe, it is inspired by the flowing lines and surface definition seen in Bentley luxury cars.
