David Guetta’s long search for the perfect Miami Beach home

According to the artist’s real estate agent, Michael Wiesenfeld (@mikewiesenmiamirealestate) of Barnes International Realty, Guetta was looking for a Miami Beach home for quite some time, but was not willing to settle on just any home.

He wanted one with modern, contemporary interiors, set in an exclusive building with luxury services and top-notch security, that also offered unobstructed views. With David Guetta only planning to spend a few weeks every year in the Miami Beach condo, finding a building that allows for short term rentals was also key. And while there may be no shortage of luxury real estate in the Miami Beach area, nothing felt quite right.

But neither Guetta nor Wiesenfeld were ready to throw in the towel. So they played it smart, looked at the buildings most likely to tick all the boxes, then started hunting for off-market deals. In the end, they managed to convince the owner of the Setai apartment, none other than billionaire Richard LeFrak (one of the largest real estate developers in the New York area) to sell his own Miami residence to the French DJ.

The Setai apartment comes with star-studded interiors

Since David Guetta would only spend a few weeks each year in his Miami Beach home, the DJ is looking to rent the apartment for the rest of the year.

And to attract the right kind of renters, the Setai apartment recently underwent an interior upgrade that bears the signature of famous Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni, wildly known for his contemporary furniture design, which is now showcased throughout the Miami Beach apartment.

Soon to follow: in preparation for Art Basel, the apartment will be fully curated by Mr Brainwash — a moniker for popular filmmaker and street pop artist Thierry Guetta.

Mr Brainwash, who has been pushing pop culture’s envelope for almost a decade by bringing his art to the street, the gallery, and on-screen, will be the one to add the final touch of character to David Guetta’s Miami home.
