Auberge Beach Residences brings the luxury and elegance of the Auberge brand to the beaches of Fort Lauderdale. The building’s massing was informed by the location of its site, situated between a high-rise residential project to the south and a neighborhood of single-family homes to the north.

The curved terraces of the north tower create the project’s signature look and maximize views while minimizing shadows across the beach. Located on the former site of the Ireland’s Inn Beach Resort, the development, which is 4.2 acres in size, is comprised of 171 units with 450 linear feet of beachfront access to the Atlantic Ocean. A 22-story South structure features 114 units while a 17-story North structure boasts a gracefully curved façade of expansive cascading terraces and houses 57 larger residences. Nichols Architects envisioned the two iconic light-filled glass towers to maximize the project’s beach setting and panoramic ocean views.

The towers shapes also envelop the project’s pool and amenity areas, located at the ground and second levels. While the towers read as two distinct elements, they are joined by a glassy, conservatory-like atrium lobby between them. This serves as the perfect entry and transition space to access either tower, as well as providing expansive views out to the recreation deck, and the beach and ocean beyond.

North and South Towers

“In an attempt to further express both the curved shape and the drop in height, the facades are resolved in a streamlined fashion of horizontal bands of solid white and glass. This gives the building a contemporary look, with an art modern feeling. The overall effect is a sensuous one, reminiscent of the fluid waves and motion of the ocean it abuts. ”
