IN THIS ISSUE

Modern architecture and design have always been open to interpretation, allowing creative minds the freedom to go outside the box. In this issue of Florida Design, we feature several homes that break with convention, including the one featured on our cover.

Reflecting the talents of architects Mitch Kunik and Brian Collins and designers Michael Wolk and Roxana Matticoli, this Boca Raton house cuts an imposing figure with its strong horizontal lines, mix of natural and industrial materials, and sleek furnishings. Influenced by a mélange of 20th-century styles, its organic yet contemporary design conveys an early American and European Modern aesthetic.
Barry Sugerman’s progressive architecture and John Marquette’s minimal interior design create an effortless flow of interconnected spaces in a house located in Pinerest. Clean intersecting lines and Mondrian-inspired windows form the framework, while natural materials and finishes shape the inside of this exceptional Miami modern.

“Extraordinary” also describes a world-class yacht named Kiss the Sky. Its owners bought the vessel sight unseen from one of the top boatbuilders in the world and then retained Patrick Knowles and Aileen Rodriguez to embellish it from bow to stern with fine art, exquisite furnishings and rich colors. A rare blend of sophistication and nautical detail, this home afloat exudes luxury inside and out.
Like the yacht, a Palm Beach estate makes a lasting impression with its eclectic blend of antiques, Neoclassical pieces and original works by Miró, Picasso and Dali. Designed by Allison Paladino, the refined interior complements the exterior’s classic architecture.

From modern masterpieces to traditional twists, this issue has something for everyone.
