Architectural Spotlight: Kobi Karp’s Design for Selene Oceanfront Residences Unveiled

In a time where the real estate market is booming and the need for new residential offerings is high, South Florida-based developer, Kolter Urban is meeting the demand. The newly released oceanfront condominium towers at Selene will bring a new look to Fort Lauderdale Beach. Rising 300 feet above sea level, Selene will be the tallest building on the coastline. Bobby Julien, CEO of the Kolter Group says, “Our vision for Selene was to create ‘Homes in the Sky.’ Residences offering the space and comforts one associates with a traditional home along with the luxury and sophistication of high-rise oceanfront living.” Selecting an architect to bring this vision to life, Kolter Urban commissioned Kobi Karp.


Karp’s concept is to create an iconic, contemporary architectural design that features sweeping, graceful lines complemented by walls of glass, generating the feeling of complete transparency and light. The two-tower design has a white glass exterior to create a sculptural effect that reflects the surrounding views of the sky, ocean, and landscape, providing unique, beautiful translucent colors at every angle. Kobi Karp purposefully designed every aspect of Selene to reflect the natural beauty of the Atlantic Ocean and the tropical-modern style that Fort Lauderdale is known for. Thus, they created the two-tower design to maximize views throughout the property and amenity spaces for residents — offering sweeping vistas of the Atlantic Ocean to the East and of Downtown’s skyline and Historic River District to the West.


Once you are able to pull yourself away from the stunning ocean and cityscape views visible from many of the residences at Selene, you’ll find at street level there is a beautiful, landscaped park that will connect the building to the beach and surrounding neighborhood. The park will offer public parking and bicycle storage to optimize usage and convenience for anyone in the neighborhood. Kobi Karp took the time to study the location and daily traffic, so not only the residents of Selene will appreciate the beauty, but those who pass by will as well.


Residents of Selene have high-end, sought-after amenities at their fingertips as well as one of the best locations in Fort Lauderdale and the South Florida area. In true Florida fashion, an elevated yet tropical Amenity Deck showcases views of the Atlantic Ocean and is home to a Resort-Style Pool, a lap-fitness pool, an outdoor Bar, BBQ Areas, inviting fire pit lounges and much more. Inside, residents will enjoy beautifully designed and furnished indoor amenity spaces. These innovative spaces include The Hub for business meetings and work-from-home activities, Seasons for special events, The Wave for entertainment, lounges for quiet conversation, and a theater for private screenings. A double-height state-of-the-art fitness center enjoys abundant light and lush views of Selene’s tropical landscaping. Oceanfront living is, even more, relaxing with personalized attention from Selene’s full complement of 24/7 staff. Concierge services will bring touches of luxury for everyday needs like dry cleaning to pre-arrival residence preparation.


With prices starting at $900,000, Selene is now accepting reservations for Fort Lauderdale’s newest oceanfront residence. Selene’s collection of architecturally crafted open-space floorplans are designed for the way you live today, with 196 luxurious residences featuring two-and three-bedrooms, ranging from 1,400 to over 3,200 square feet, with great room designs all with ideal indoor and outdoor space for entertaining.

Flowing contemporary floor plans with floor-to-ceiling windows showcase exceptional direct Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal, or dynamic city skyline views from over half of the residences. These iconic views are maximized by wide terraces and glass balconies.
