Neolith® is an architectural skin capable of dressing up any interior or exterior commercial or residential space where it’s applied from floors and walls to kitchen countertops, facades and even furniture. The large format minimizes the number of joints in cladding for decorative and hygiene benefits. The minimal thickness allows it to be directly applied to an already existing surface without the need for prior removal.

It’s a low-maintenance material given its special resistance to scratches, stains, chemicals, high temperatures and traffic. Neolith® also provides the perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality given its unlimited possibilities and capacity to resemble all-natural materials like stone, wood and metal.

EDITOR’S LETTER

MUSINGS of HOME Everything we know has changed. These past months as the world literally paused, we found ourselves tethered to our homes—forced to be still, notice and reflect. It was curiosity and boredom, togetherness and aloneness, wanderlust through reading and Netflixing. Food and food and food. Never have so many banana breads collectively been baked. Observing nature and taking a quiet stroll was a tonic for the soul. We sat in our homes, evaluated our homes, and were grateful for our homes. Like spring’s green shoots, we are starting to emerge, not knowing exactly how or where we will land. One thing we know for sure is that we are committing to use our platforms to amplify diverse design voices. Our incredible team put this summer issue together, working remotely, with great care and attention. We trust that it will encourage musing; a promise for the spaces that you and yours inhabit.

Clockwise from top: Snapshots in and around my home. An inspiration wall in my art studio/work-from-home space; the afternoon light in my living room; hiking at a nearby nature preserve; a recent sketchbook.

LX_COM32_Radar_Destination.indd 54

N

ashville has come a long way since its 1897 designation as the “Athens of the South,” when a to-scale replica of the Parthenon was erected in modern-day Centennial Park. Founded as a river port city—and, later, a railroad hub—Nashville has been known for its enterprising spirit and classical roots, evidenced by a wealth of Georgian and Greek Revival residences dotting the lawns of Forest Hills and Belle Meade. While these landmark neighborhoods serve as the backbone of the community, the city’s design palette has evolved to be as diverse as that of its latest residents hailing from L.A., Austin, New York and beyond. “Nashville is a perpetual frontier town,” notes DAAD principal Nick Dryden, one of the city’s leading residential and commercial architects, who points to the vast number of transplants moving in, sight unseen, to build businesses and community. Third in a generational line of architects, Dryden proceeded to transform Nashville’s cityscape with progressive ideas and cleaner profiles, authoring icons such as Rolf & Daughters restaurant and Noelle Hotel, while overhauling historic Germantown. “What I do is narrative architecture, a response to historic context, always tailored to the clients,” says Dryden, who straddles disciplines, nodding to local vernacular while incorporating modern hallmarks that appeal to transplants. Natives, in turn, feel increasing permission to take design risks themselves. Adds designer Robin Rains: “Nashville’s historic neighborhoods are steeped in tradition and heritage,” but homeowners wanting to venture beyond the status quo of Southern style “are making the work more challenging and interesting.” She says a curated mix of antique, vintage and modern is coveted for Nashville interiors regardless of the architectural envelope. Rains, who launched her eponymous business in 2001, also maintains a presence in nearby Franklin and Leiper’s Fork, with an antique store in the latter, and has selected the Nashville Design Collective for her next showroom. Considered the city’s first large-scale trade resource, the highly anticipated Collective softopened earlier this year thanks to La Cornue alum Anne Puricelli and Design Galleria principal Matthew Quinn, boasting showrooms such as Circa Lighting and Christopher Peacock, with other top brands coming soon. “Young Nashville residents are raising families and turning tradition on its ear,” says Quinn, who recently augmented his longstanding Atlanta flagship with a new location at the Collective. Plus, anticipated additions to the skyline—such as Soho House, developer Tony Giarratana’s 900 Church and the Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Nashville—suggest further signs of progress. Despite its classical roots, the “Athens of the South” may be worthy of a new nickname soon: next big thing.

RADAR / CRAFT

ANYTHING but ARTIFICIAL RESIN BECOMES A PRECIOUS MATERIAL WHEN WORKED BY SOME OF LOS ANGELES’S INNOVATIVE DESIGNERS. WRITTEN BY MAILE PINGEL

Since the 1960s, artists and designers in Los Angeles have turned synthetics into decorative gold with ingenious methods of sculpting plastics into luxurious objects. Whether it’s furniture, accessories or fine art, the medium lends itself to a variety of forms that speak to a truly Californian craft. When the state became a leader in aerospace technologies in the 1940s, new materials and cutting-edge capabilities, such as facilities that could roll out sheets of acrylic to form aircraft windows, were revelatory for artists. One leader in the field, designer Charles Hollis Jones, pioneered atmospheric Lucite furnishings that had a profound effect on West Coast interiors. His designs were created with thick sheets of acrylic that allowed them to absorb and magnify light, resulting in a sculptural quality that captured the attention of Hollywood stars like Lucille Ball and Sammy Davis Jr. Today, Jones continues to explore the material with his new Diamond Connexxion line. “Instead of doing square or round shapes, I decided to do something different—people like it,” he says of the angular forms. But a new generation of California creatives, too, is lured by plastic’s limitless, almost magical properties. Elyse Graham, who first became known for the vase forms she created by coating sand-filled balloons with resin, is “completely seduced by the material,” she says. “So many aspects of it capture my imagination. Most excitingly, I’ve now found a way to reuse it.” Working with what she calls MetaMaterial (a composite resin made with recast pieces), she makes furniture that bridges art and function. “Each new project builds on the one before it as we discover new ways of working with resin,” says Graham. For industrial designer and spatial artist Nobel Truong, it’s all an exploration of philosophy and technology. As an “admirer of the structural forms and function that marked Bauhaus architecture,” she creates both theoretical furnishings and playful accessories with laser-cut acrylic panels that slot together. Intrigued by “the play on color and shape pioneered by the Memphis Group,” she also explores the effects of color in her work, especially fluorescent hues. Putting an emphasis on the whimsical side of the material’s complex nature is artist Betsy Enzensberger. “Resin is an incredibly difficult medium to work with, which is why I’m attracted to it,” she says. Likening the liquid resins she casts and sculpts to honey and syrup, it’s not surprising her works celebrate childhood sweets—ice cream and popsicles—that range in size from 6 inches to 6 feet. “I expect perfection in my work, but it’s about joy. I want to spread smiles,” she says.

Artist Betsy Enzensberger uses the familiarity of sweet treats, like her sculpture Vibrant Daydreams made of resin, ink, glitter, pearl powder and plexiglass, to evoke the simplicity and joy so often associated with childhood delights.

Nature’s BOUNTY TEXAS ARCHITECTS TURN TO THE LAND WITH NATIVE MATERIALS LEADING DESIGN.

WRITTEN BY MARY JO BOWLING PHOTOGRAPHY BY CASEY DUNN

Architecture firm Lake Flato’s Horizon House boasts 30inch thick, locally sourced rammed-earth walls that function as a historical means of regulating temperature, while also celebrating local craftspeople and materials.

Texans have a history of building resourcefulness. “We are a state of immigrants,” notes architect Michael Imber. “When people came here, they brought their own culture and aesthetics, and they adapted those to the materials at hand— and that’s why our architecture has character today.” That character, described by Imber as “sturdy, rugged and embodied with heritage,” has made buildings in the Lone Star State famous, and prompted leading architects around the nation to take note. When pioneers came to Texas in the 19th century, they found limited materials. In addition to the limestone they could see in the cuts made by rivers, there were stands of mesquite, cypress and post oak trees and a seemingly unlimited supply of reddish-brown dirt for making adobe bricks and earth walls. The settlers began constructing with these, and to this day Texas architects are following suit and using the same resources. “When we design buildings, we think about what would make them durable and beautiful,” says architect Ted Flato, whose firm has been known to install mesquite floors and make broad use of Texas limestone. “The best materials for this climate are native. Not only

are they beautiful, they make a structure look at home in the landscape.” For Imber, using endemic sources—such as mesquite, cypress, whitewashed Texas limestone and rammed earth—gives structures meaning. “It connects them to the past and to the future,” he says. “Architectural styles may come and go, but if there’s a commonality of materials, it makes us feel comfortable. Looking at things we recognize is a nurturing experience.” It is a look others seek to emulate. “We have clients in far-flung places who fall in love with our work, and they want to build something like it where they live,” says Flato. “When that happens, we begin by looking at the older properties in the area. From there, we can determine what the local materials are—that’s all they had to work with back then. We try to do the same thing with native resources in that particular region.” Imber believes that indigenous materials are like heritage foods. “When foods became homogenized across the U.S., we lost our individual culture and flavor,” he notes. “It’s the same with building sources. Texas has long been a leader in constructing with local ingredients, and the rest of the country is catching on.”

A FRESH CROP OF FURNITURE ARTISANS CRAFTS WITH CARE.

WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRITTANY CHEVALIER MCINTYRE

blanchejelly.com Name Game: My company, Blanche Jelly, is named after my great-grandmother. Not only is it a distinctive name, but I also believe it speaks to a certain sense of time and our special relationship. Changing Direction: Before this career, I worked in political risk analysis for the World Bank and realized being in front of a computer all day wasn’t fulfilling for me. Growing up in Portland, Oregon, I was always drawn to home design, so I knew I was inclined to work with interiors and make things by hand. I moved to New York City and received my MFA in interior design from Parsons, then went to Hudson, New York, where I began making furniture. After my business picked up, I moved back to Portland in 2016. Guiding Fundamentals: People are familiar with my plaster pieces, but I also make hardware that follows similar principles—everything is made by hand in my studio. I do not believe in high-tech gadgets. I use five tools and my pieces don’t look perfect. I am not interested in perfection. Untapped Element: I’ve been intrigued by working with stone, and I don’t mean the refined kind. Over the years I have collected little river rocks and I’ve wanted to build them into furnishings.

Home GROWN

ELIZABETH PARKER

CASEY MCCAFFERTY casey-mccafferty.com Natural Inclination: Growing up the fourth of five children in Staten Island, my parents let me dabble with any creative endeavor I was obsessed with at that stage. I built computers, worked on mopeds, made fiberglass structures and erected tree forts. Furniture design and woodcraft took hold after graduating college. Coastal Significance: Living on both coasts—the East as a child and the West (Los Angeles) as an adult—I have always loved walks on the beach searching for debris. The textures, colors and overall air of flotsam and jetsam are a huge influence on my work. History Lesson: I’ve been reading a lot about Constantin Brâncuși and Auguste Rodin lately—both famous sculptors with different styles. Their dedication and obsessiveness in what they deemed quality drive me to always dive into and believe in my work. On the Horizon: The “Hello World” table— I’ve had a creative angst regarding the design of the common table since the top will always be a flat surface. So, I made a simple switch of letting the base flow through the tabletop allowing the eye to wander from bottom to top. 052 / LUXESOURCE.COM

JUDE HESLIN-DI LEO Formative Years: I always wanted to be an artist, but it wasn’t until I took a class at Pratt on industrial design that I connected strongly with the work and felt it was my path. While I was pretty lousy at woodworking during those college years, it wasn’t until a few years later during a summer job with Johnny Geraghty, a custom furniture maker, that I learned the traditional methods of Japanese tansu. With the intricacies involved and no allowances for error, my fabrication skills jumped to the next level. Mutual Affection: My biggest early influence was when my friend Bernardo Guillermo and I started designing and making furniture together after graduating college in 2005. We influenced each other— pushing and leaning on one another to make those early pieces happen. Living in Harmony: Earlier this year my family and I moved out of New York City to Cold Spring, New York, where we live on top of a mountain surrounded by wildlife. Everyone in our community does their part to preserve the area’s tranquility and living here has had a tremendous impact on how I connect with the earth, especially when it comes to my work. American Craftsmanship: To me, it is the integration of fine arts, industrialism and technology. It is also about keeping the celebration of the artisan alive.

JUDE HESLIN-DI LEO: VIGNETTE, JON VON PAMER; PORTRAIT, GIEVES ANDERSON. ASPEN GOLANN: PORTRAIT, CHAD WEEDEN.

judeheslindileo.com

ASPEN GOLANN aspengolann.com Go-to Materials: Domestic hardwoods, especially walnut and maple. Walnut is so classic and the grain is so rich, while the bright, simple tones of maple give furniture such lightness. When bleached, the pieces emanate an almost otherworldly glow. Studio Influence: During my residency here at Penland School of Craft in North Carolina, I keep an unruly set of three-ring binders filled with reference images of Greek and Roman statues, iconic pieces of American furniture and objects by unnamed makers that I’ve spotted in thrift stores. Southern Charm: I love the elegance and restraint of traditional furniture forms, especially their properness relating to decorum. While my pieces inspirit antique furniture, I try to dust off the stuffy aesthetic related to classic lines by simplifying, rearranging or recontextualizing older forms and styles. Playing Favorites: Made with my good friend and mentor, Peter Galbert, and commissioned for the wellknown English designer Beata Heuman, the Windsor Settee has so many opposing qualities; it utilizes old-school Windsor chair construction, while the updated proportions and curving of the entire back and undercarriage give it a fluid, sculptural feeling. 054 / LUXESOURCE.COM

WHO: Miami-based, multidisciplinary artist Jessy Nite, whose gallery and installation works are exhibited internationally and has commissioned commercial projects by mega-brands such as Nike (top), Instagram and Facebook. WHAT: Working in a variety of mediums, Nite is best-known for her playful use of color, textbased works and large-scale public “Sun Installations” series, text pieces that harness sunlight in real time to reveal messages about their location, like Sun Stories at Giralda Plaza in Coral Gables (bottom).

THE INSIDERS SUSAN AND WOLFGANG HOFHERR

How does your garden grow? With the help of Authentic Provence on West Palm’s Antique Row. When owners Susan and Wolfgang Hofherr moved from Italy to the Palm Beaches in the mid-1990s, they noticed that the area’s stunning Mediterranean-style homes were lacking magnificent gardens to match. With Wolfgang specializing in international antiques and Susan in fashion design, the couple began sourcing authentic monumental garden antiques that stay true to the artisans of thousands of years ago. They’ve since evolved beyond the Provençal lifestyle, importing garden antiques from Italy, England and Belgium. Along with their showroom and sprawling warehouse, customers can wander the Secret Garden for sculptures, fountains, benches and urns made of masterfully hand-sculpted limestone, along with rare finds such as Versailles planter boxes. Lovers of midcentury modern design should peruse a separate showroom filled with period furniture featuring exquisite 1950s European and signed designer pieces as well as Murano glass lighting. The entire collection can also be viewed online. authenticprovence.com 056 / luxesource.com

VIRTUAL LIVING VIRTUO BY SCAVOLINI

The future is here for those afraid to commit to a design. Scavolini in Coral Gables is now using virtual reality software, Virtuo, so homeowners can experience the look and feel of a new kitchen, bathroom or closet before construction begins. Using virtual reality goggles and controllers to “move” around the space, customers can change finishes and color schemes on cabinets, walls and floors, and even open doors and drawers in real time to ensure maximum functionality. “The virtual reality software enhances this personal connection by offering assurance that a client’s new space will be perfect,” says Scavolini Miami showroom manager Bryson Cook. Once the design is to a customer’s liking, the materials are imported from Italy and installed, making their virtual dream home a reality. scavoliniusa.com

IN HER WORDS: “I’ve always seen the sun as the unifying element. No matter where you are in the world, we are all living under the same sun—sweating it out and dealing with it. The ‘Sun Installations’ highlight that with playful, yet deeply rooted phrases that change and move with the sun.”

DESIGNER DIGS AS MIAMI CONTINUES TO REACH FOR THE SKY, THESE THREE NEW RESIDENTIAL BUILDS IMPRESS.

In North Miami Beach, Eighty Seven Park seems to hover weightlessly above the ocean and parks below, thanks to its cantilevered architecture designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano, his first residential project in the U.S. RDAI in Paris, known for its work with Hermès, splashed the interiors of the 68-unit building with designs inspired by the area’s natural surroundings. Light oak flooring mirrors the color palette of sea grape leaves, Venetian terrazzo floors mimics white sandy beaches, and an airy lobby library is dotted with lush greenery, glass pendant lighting from Iguzzini and bright poufs by Paola Lenti. Extra perk: a 2-acre private park created by renowned Dutch landscape architecture firm West 8. eightysevenpark.com

▲ RESIDENCES BY ARMANI/CASA Fashion and real estate collide beautifully at the new Residences by Armani/Casa in Sunny Isles Beach, where fashion icon Giorgio Armani personally handpicked or designed everything in the 308-unit luxury condominium, from textured door panels to walls with a palm print inlay to a million-dollar sofa imported from Italy in the silk-encased main lobby. Armani strayed from his normally dark palette with pops of green and, since the designer loves curves, there are virtually no corners in the building. Amenities are rich, with an old Hollywoodinspired movie theater, an expansive spa and a wine tasting lounge. rbacmiami.com

▲ BRICKELL FLATIRON Imitation is the highest form of flattery at the new 64-story Brickell Flatiron residences—the tallest condominium in Miami— where celebrated Italian architect Massimo Iosa Ghini drew upon the tower’s curved façade of glass and steel. Movement is everywhere, especially in the lobby where Iosa Ghini coordinated various vignettes using artsy, curved steel bars integrated with LED lighting, while walls and floors are swathed in Italian marble to continue that fluidity. Escape to the rooftop Sky Spa for a tranquil oasis with dangling chairs, perfect for dipping toes into a stone pool. brickellflatiron.com

LIGHT SHOW ALLEN SAUNDERS

Miami-based designer Allen Saunders has a reputation for developing highly detailed design environments for residences around the globe, currently with a focus on lighting. “Home architecture has moved toward more open-space designs, which often diminish walls, and, in turn, eliminate space for artwork,” says Saunders. “Lighting now has a new starring role as a focal point rather than just a necessity.” For Saunders, that means traveling the world for inspiration and collaborating with makers on groundbreaking custom light fixtures. Here, he sheds light on the current trends. allensaunders.com

⊳ SUSPENDED SCULPTURES “We’re creating commissioned art in the form of suspended light sculptures that can be viewed from 360 degrees. Our collaboration with Irish light sculptor Niamh Barry resulted in intertwined shapes of polished bronze and LED-illuminated opal glass and made an artistic impact in this Miami Beach residence entry foyer.”

MASTER GLASS ⊲

“Lighting should also be a conversation piece. I worked with Vancouver-based manufacturer Bocci to develop a custom composition of fabric-textured orbs formed of cooled liquid glass. Whenever anyone walks into the dining room of this Miami Beach home, they marvel at this cloud-like, illuminated sculpture.”

▲ ARTISTIC SIMPLICITY “When it comes to bedrooms, we desire to create a serene sleeping environment, which often means incorporating understated lighting. This can be accomplished with subtle or simplistic shapes, such as these Michael Anastassiades milk glass globes portraying artistic minimalism.”

⊳ BRAVE NEW BATHROOMS “People are spending more time in their bathrooms, utilizing them as a relaxing oasis, which means lighting has become more important. In this Delray Beach master bath, we introduced a fixture formed of swarming adjustable glass tubes by New York industrial designer Lindsey Adelman.”

BETTER Together IT’S ALL ABOUT COLLABORATION THESE DAYS. LUXE HIGHLIGHTS FIVE DYNAMIC PARTNERSHIPS, EACH WITH A SPIRITED SYNERGY. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY KATHRYN GIVEN

CHADDOCK x MARK D. SIKES Mark D. Sikes brings his elevated California design ethos to a curated, customizable furniture collection with North Carolina-based Chaddock and its CEO, Andrew Crone. Walk us through the inspiration. MDS: We wanted to create allAmerican, versatile pieces. The design of several items was spurred by antiques I’m often hunting down for clients. What attracted you to this collaboration? AC: Mark is a wonderful partner for us because he understands the power of timeless elements and personalized details in a way that customers and clients understand them, too. Tell us about the materials. AC: Quality is the bedrock of what we do, so all of the “ingredients” are really important. We used a mixture of oak and maple wood species for the case goods. We love the dining chair and its versatility. MDS: Yes, it feels both feminine and masculine, and the scale works as a dining chair, a desk chair or a side chair. I also love the beautiful detail of the lattice back and the cane seat.

ROBERT KIME x TORY BURCH

Share the inspiration for the collection. RK: Our trip together to Japan was certainly the impetus. We went to wonderful places, stacked with beautiful documents but both gravitated toward the same designs. What excites you about Robert’s design aesthetic? TB: I’ve always been a huge admirer of Robert’s work, particularly his take on country homes. His approach is eclectic. I love how he has no rules, combining objects from different cultures and time periods. Nothing feels too designed. The patterns are so charming—what sentiment were you going for? RK: We leaned heavily into indigo, as there was so much of that simple dying technique found on our journey. The patterns are delightful, some small and some less so—but they each tell a story. How would we find them in your home? TB: I’ll mix and match the fabrics—nothing too perfect. The Ume pattern (left) was inspired by an original Sarasa fragment from the Edo period and is still considered exotic and valuable in Japanese society today. Decorated with birds and bamboo, the Takeyabu design was drawn from a Bingata fabric, which traditionally depicts natural motifs. robertkime.com

My inspiration images were really brought to life through Society Social’s talented artisans. Talk to us about your stylistic approach. RT: We wanted a look that is a soft ode to the classics but still evokes the comfort of home—designs that welcome effortless and inspired living. What’s important to keep in mind when designing furniture? AO: End use! I ultimately felt drawn to design a furniture line because I wanted to create pieces that I couldn’t find for my own clients. It’s important to really zero in on how the pieces will be used.

MARKET / SPOTLIGHT

ATELIER VIME x FARROW & BALL

How did the partnership with Farrow & Ball transpire? AW: Our world is intimately linked to Provence and our 18th-century house in Vallabrègues. For a long time, we had considered recreating our objects in color. The methods used by Farrow & Ball fit our artisanal and sustainable approach perfectly. Favorite moment? CC: Like us, commitment to traditional production methods is important to Atelier Vime, so it was great to see this celebrated with handcrafted woodwork. The paint really brings the pieces to life. CC: Strong colors like these certainly add a statement to a room, but when used on wicker, they frame the light and respond to it. What tenets do you consider when designing? AW: It has to be functional and poetic. I love to imagine a story behind each item. One of Atelier Vime’s first designs, the Gabriel Ceiling Light harks back to a round utility basket originally made by the company in the 1950s and used for collecting fruit. Today, the wicker is cultivated and handcrafted in Provence. It’s shown here in Farrow & Ball’s Off-Black (left) and Cola paint colors. ateliervime.com; farrow-ball.com

B&B ITALIA x NAOTO FUKASAWA The connection runs deep for B&B Italia’s CEO Gilberto Negrini and Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa, who teamed up again to create Ayana, a minimalist assemblage of outdoor items. What attracted you to collaborate with Fukasawa? GN: His pure, light vision of design and the fact that his products are minimal and precise in their shapes and details. Most rewarding part of the process? NF: The most joyful stage for me is visiting the factory, seeing the prototypes and continuing to refine the pieces. We love the use of natural teak. GN: The unpainted teak allows the piece to age and evolve in the most genuine way. This project also has a green soul as all the materials can be separated and disposed of with respect for the environment at the end of the product’s life cycle. What excites you most about the collection? NF: The unique combination of essential shapes and natural wood is so elegant and sophisticated.

At a moment when our homes are more important than ever, kitchen and bath spaces have become the ultimate safe havens—somewhere we can pause, unwind and take comfort at the end of the day. Today’s designers are incorporating minimalistic layouts, natural materials and soothing color palettes to create airy environments. Designer Jennifer Kranitz of Project Interiors took those elements to heart for a spacious Chicago bathroom imagining “a quiet, gentle setting where the owners can hit mute on the chaos of life.”

Designer Jennifer Kranitz created an elegant master bathroom in Studio Gang’s iconic Aqua Tower in Chicago with tranquility in mind. The subdued gray-toned walls and flooring were customized in Tadelakt Plaster and fabricated by Chicago Ornamental Plastering. A brass stool by Noir punctuates the neutral palette in front of an MTI bathtub with Hansgrohe fittings.

Nestled high above the sprawling city of Chicago is this ideal urban oasis by designer Jennifer Kranitz of Project Interiors. Here, she walks us through the spectacular space, which involved combining two units in the luxury skyscraper. projectinteriors.com

Tell us about the decision to use plaster. Plaster is the main finish here and is incorporated on the floors, walls, tub, shower—everything! It’s very durable and low-maintenance. The various applications create movement and allow your eye to travel around the space. Plus, the material almost has a velvety look, which adds a subtle texture and scale to this very large room. What should be top of mind when designing a bathroom? While you want it to be pretty, it also has to work! Early on in the process, consider the functionality and how your client will live in the space. We were mindful of elements such as circulation, point of entry and storage while building this relaxing refuge.

That view! This bathroom offers an amazing cityscape. We took into consideration everything happening outside when creating the design. We wanted it to be soft and serene in contrast to the city life visible through the floor-to-ceiling wraparound windows.

In a Dallas kitchen, architect Jason Erik Smith chose Ann Sacks’ Pietra Statuario for the island, which features a Houzer sink and Blanco faucet. “With four children, the island needed to be heroic,” Smith recalls.

THIS KITCHEN PROVES THAT AN AESTHETICS-FIRST APPROACH DOESN’T HAVE TO SACRIFICE FUNCTIONALITY. WRITTEN BY GRACE BEULEY HUNT

The words “calm” and “kitchen” don’t always walk hand in hand. But for a Texas couple with four children, a Zen cooking hub was wish number one for their new home in the tony Dallas suburb of University Park.

With its organic material procession, the storagesavvy kitchen flows seamlessly into the openconcept great room—but that’s not to say it feels

indistinct. To delineate, the architects carried the rift-sawn white-oak flooring up the wall and across the ceiling like a ribbon on a gift. “What this does is create a room within a room,” Smith explains. “It’s a strategy we like to use to create intimacy within a big, open space.” Rounding out the interiors, designer Jean Liu employed furnishings with clean lines and stalwart tendencies. A laminate top Saarinen table joined by walnut Cherner dining chairs creates a dégagé set-up for homework sessions and cocktail parties alike, while soaring Pindler curtain sheers and custom sisal rugs lend warmth and softness to the minimal scheme. “A limited color palette will always tone down hustle and bustle,” notes the designer, adding, “Every last detail in this space is choreographed, which creates a sense of serenity and calmness.” smitharc.com; jeanliudesign.com

PALETTE CLEANSER

“The idea was not to think of it as a kitchen, but as a beautiful space that happens to have all the amenities and comforts of one,” explains architect Jason Erik Smith. To meet this brief, the team at Smitharc Architects prioritized concealing as much visual clutter as possible. Along the north wall, a series of discreet doors encloses both refrigerator and dishware storage. Beyond, in the handsome back-of-house area, a shallow corridor hosts built-in small appliances before revealing a walk-in pantry and coffee bar. And equal parts design statement and workhorse, the impressive, 15-foot-long sintered porcelain island houses two dishwashers and a downdraft cooktop, in addition to generous drawer space.

Technology has always been a partner to wellness, most often recognized for its advances in medicine that positively impact health. But today, they cross paths in a new way, balancing the demands of a fast-paced world with the needs of mind, body and soul. The secret lies in the blending of innovation and intuition, modernity and meditation. In an age where home is study, shelter and sanctuary, the design industry is embracing this philosophy, bringing the best of automation, lighting, audiovisual, environmental controls, landscaping and more together to further the ambitions and well-being of their users. It’s time to begin your journey toward the smartest, healthiest version of home, and by extension, you ‌

FOR PEOPLE + PLANET As a company that creates healthier options for lighting, shading and the processes that power it all, Bandalux is contributing to a larger vision: the constant improvement of people’s lifestyles and living spaces. Along with smart designs, sustainable materials are key to this endeavor. Bandalux uses fabrics that have thermal, acoustic, antibacterial and fire-retardant properties. “Throughout it all, we are focused on forging a path for future generations by committing to steps that make our world better, one place at a time,” García shares.

Many experts agree that the light in a room is crucial to more than visibility. Proper light exposure can improve mood, blood pressure and even immune function. Such is the science behind Bandalux’s smart window coverings, awnings and more. “Through our products, you can shape light to create the space you need at any particular time of the day,” says Eduardo García, the general manager of Bandalux’s U.S. division. And this isn’t where the company’s focus on wellness ends. As the Bandalux team strives to help clients adjust environments from moment to moment, it employs earth-friendly techniques, like using sustainable materials and aiming for energy efficiency. García elaborates on the company’s goals, saying, “Through relentless innovation, partnerships with local providers and creative thinking, we outfit smart and healthy homes, in which our clients can live, work, grow and dream in the greatest comfort.”

A HOLISTIC VIEWPOINT Since new construction is more prevalent in the U.S., whole-home smart systems with motorized shades are only gaining in popularity. Bandalux responds, with automated shade systems of the highest quality, elegant aesthetics and smooth, effortless movement.

ALFRESCO AUTOMATION Given its sunshine, blue skies and ocean breezes, Florida entices its residents to spend more time outdoors than is typical elsewhere. As such, manufacturers and installers alike are beginning to explore the boundaries of technology in open air. Lighting and even audio within landscapes are no longer an afterthought, and large video displays that can smoothly pop out of a deck floor or projectors that can create the feeling of being in a drive-in theater are the latest obsession.

Home automation is at its best when everything works together seamlessly, and that’s just what the pros at Sound Vision Technology strive to do—by being a one-stop shop. “We are a total smart home provider, meaning we do everything,” says Abe Tessler, who owns the firm alongside Gary Cranston. Truly, they do. From initial structured wiring design and low-voltage CAD drawings, to installing lighting controls, drapery tracks, audiovisual products, networks, surveillance systems and more, to implementing it all into one easy-to-use smartphone interface, Tessler, Cranston and their team deliver the full package. The goal behind it all? To simplify. “When used to its full potential, technology can make everything about daily life less complicated,” Cranston says. “We strive to tie subsystems together into an end result that makes controlling anything in the home as simple as one touch of a finger.”

“Whether you’re working, relaxing with a glass of wine, or having a quiet romantic dinner, there’s a lighting scene for it.”

+ Light it up. Efficient and ambient lighting plays a role in wellness, and new products like Ketra by Lutron, a tunable system that has an amazing range of color temperatures, are making it more dynamic than ever. + Bring it all together. Don’t settle for multiple programs and control spaces. Nowadays, it’s possible to integrate anything and everything into a single system.

1. & 2. This home is a fully integrated smart home, with Lutron QS lighting and shades, audio/video distribution, a surveillance system, Pentair pool controls and Savant thermostats. All of the subsystems can be controlled via the homeowners’ smart devices and Savant remotes, locally or remotely. The goal was for this home to seamlessly integrate everything into one easy-to-use interface. 2

The features that take priority are up to the homeowner, but Tessler and Cranston always recommend checking at least these two boxes.

As cars evolve with smart technology, homes have followed suit, automating everything from lighting, climate and appliances, down to doors. Enter, Summit Automation, literally. The premier manufacturer creates door automation systems that can be operated via motion sensors, hand wave sensors, Bluetooth, and soon, Alexa. “Our systems integrate with customers’ smart home technology and provide builders and architects the ability to expand traditional sizes and weight boundaries of door installation with effortless operation,” says CEO Patrick Gruetzmacher. From a health and safety perspective, its systems help homeowners minimize the spread of germs with completely hands-free operation, even on doors with 200 feet of glass. “Our system is also UL 325-certified and programmed to detect obstructions in the door’s path, preventing damage to anyone or anything in its way,” Gruetzmacher says.

WHEN WORK MEETS LIFE As working from home becomes more the new norm, the need to create a work space that provides a quiet, stress-free escape has become increasingly important. Summit Automation’s systems provide separation between offi ce and living spaces, while bringing the outdoor area indoors with a touch of a button, even wirelessly. Connecting outdoor and indoor areas instills a sense of well-being and calm, whether working from the offi ce or any area of the home.

“We have simplified a complex operation, bringing doors to life with the push of a button.”

L

ife moves at a leisurely pace on the Treasure Coast. It’s a comfortable lifestyle a couple grew fond of while spending family holidays at the 1950s ranch-style house belonging to the wife’s mother. When she decided to sell the property, the couple was ready to take the helm, thus delightfully owning a piece of family history on one of the area’s most covetable corner lots. But with only a handful of updates over several decades, the home was showing its age. Covered in traditional chintzes, family belongings and bright tropical prints, it was “a relic of the past,” recalls Claire Miner, the couple’s go-to designer. Outside, pale yellow stucco and windows of different proportions were a far cry from the first impression the couple sought. To respect its past in a modern fashion, they enlisted architect Jack Franzen to design something more current but still fitting within the area’s historical vernacular. “John Volk was the inspiration more than anyone else,” he says of his vision for the new front elevation: gentle archways, long windows and a pitched roof in place of its flat one, all reminiscent of the late local architect’s interpretation of British Colonial architecture. Inside, Franzen was motivated to create large open spaces for the couple to enjoy with their children and grandchildren. “Cultivating a sense of togetherness very much inspired the new layout,” he says. With the residence’s original 1950s floor plan too cramped for such a design, general contractor Ron Smith took the structure down to its foundation. “We stripped the house to its bare bones and then modified the existing slab for a more contemporary floor plan,” he says. The team added 4 feet to the dining area, which has since expanded into the newly formed great room, also containing the kitchen and a sitting area.

“WE KEPT COLOR TO A MINIMUM IN ORDER TO DRAW THE EYES TO THE OUTDOORS.” –CLAIRE MINER

LX_MIA33_HOM_Miner_12_PBpickup.indd 114

Within the updated architecture, the wife tasked Miner with designing interiors that are fresh and forward-thinking but steeped in history. “She made it clear she wanted to create something different that doesn’t lean into the typical Florida aesthetic,” the designer says. The look begins in the foyer, where Miner employed a chevron-print wallpaper crafted from water hyacinth, a wow factor that subtly hints at the home’s subtropical surrounds. Going for the unexpected, she incorporated global finds such as a reproduction Dutch Colonial chair from the Philippines and side tables chiseled from Cameroon coffee bean trees in the living room as well as rattan kitchen pendants repurposed from tools used by fisherwomen in Indonesia. “Because these pieces come from other subtropical areas, they felt very appropriate,” the designer explains. “And although they’re tied to these very traditional cultures, their simpler forms make them feel modern.” Weaving family history into the design was just as important to the owners. Miner incorporated several items belonging to the wife’s mother, such as a grass-cloth coffee table and re-covered spool chairs, both in the study. A sentimental writing desk was placed in the master bedroom. “It’s a lovely reminder of the wife’s mother,” the designer says. “These connections were really important to the couple, because they have a deep love of family.” For color moments, Miner took cues from the owners’ beloved Charlie Miesmer painting. She wove its soft, atmospheric hues in small doses throughout the abode, starting with the living room’s fig leaf-print sofa pillow fabric that picks up on the painting’s periwinkle and aqua tones. The color scheme continues into private spaces such as the master bedroom, which features a bedskirt in a whimsical, soft blue pattern. Throughout the residence, Miner kept the newly elevated ceilings and lofty walls a warm white to enhance Franzen’s architecture and the surrounding flora, as appreciated by the wife. “We kept color to a minimum, because she wanted to draw your eyes to the outdoors,” the designer says. “The interiors are simply here to complement the beautiful surroundings.” Landscape designer Richard Rutledge introduced neatly trimmed green island ficus and downy jasmine throughout the property and, out back, added a gumbo limbo tree and various palms. “They provide such nice shadows and sound, especially when sitting at each of the two back terraces,” Rutledge says. To bring the atmosphere inside, Miner opted for sheers and bamboo shades over heavy drapery, framing the views. The designer credits Rutledge’s thoughtful landscape plan in “giving the house a sense of permanence,” she says. “Although we created something brand new, the home looks like it’s always belonged on the corner.” And on the Treasure Coast, that’s precisely the point.

t wasn’t so much the house itself that caught a Miami couple’s eye when they purchased it but rather the property’s enormous oak trees, staghorn plants and lush foliage. As it turns out, it’s a good thing they were more attached to the greenery. When interior designer Bea Pila presented the couple with her plan for the home’s redesign, she and the rest of the team made a particularly bold suggestion: Tear the 1960s residence down to its foundation. “At first I thought, ‘Oh no, this is not going to work out,’ ” the wife admits. “But what came out of her mouth next was an incredible vision she got just from listening to us and getting to know how our family dynamics worked. It took about an hour for us to call her back and hire her.” Pila’s approach to interior design is somewhat unorthodox. Following a self-developed method she calls Design Enlightenment, she begins each project with something akin to a therapy session with the clients. Using seven core tenets, the interior designer then delves far beyond a person’s aesthetic preferences. “I ask them what they love besides just a certain style, because I believe style is a different approach,” she explains. “We want to get down first into the feeling of what we’re talking about. Tell me how you want to feel, and then we’ll create from there.” Once she had an understanding of how this couple and their three teenaged children live, Pila knew the house’s original floor plan wouldn’t work for them. The living, dining and family rooms and kitchen were all disconnected to the point that many of the spaces wouldn’t get much use. “My philosophy is there shouldn’t be spaces we abandon or neglect,” the interior designer says. “They should all be activated by the people who live in them.” And so general contractor Emilio Mascaro knocked most of the structure down, retaining the home’s footprint. “Even though it was technically a remodeling,” he says, “what was left of the house after we did the demolition was very little—just three or four walls.”

“ALL OF THE SPACES SHOULD BE ACTIVATED BY THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THEM.” –BEA PILA

LX_PB33_HOM_Pila_12_MIApickup.indd 126

To create more usable space within the existing foundation, the team—which included architect Mike Sardinas, who has since joined Bermello Ajamil & Partners— raised the ceilings by 2 feet and connected the living and dining areas. In the original home, a fireplace divided the kitchen from the living room. The group switched the fireplace to the opposite side, then mimicked the existing painted brick for the dining area, outfitted with a banquette, to anchor the room. And by removing the walls to the family room, Pila created a piano lounge and bar—a longtime dream of the husband—with a library that opens to the living-dining area. Using the set of French doors from the original home, the interior designer connected the new living area with the terrace, extending the transoms upward to account for the higher ceilings and to let in more sunlight. Additional windows allow for views of the oak trees from within the home. “It’s almost as if they’re part of the inside of the house,” the wife says. For the reworked interiors, the owners favored a breezy, Hamptons vibe. Pila combined exposed beams in spaces such as the lounge, a tongue-and-groove pitched ceiling in the living area and detailed millwork, informal finishes and approachable textures throughout to bring a relaxed, coastal ambience. “I didn’t want anything to feel untouchable,” she says, emphasizing the use of more organic materials such as the living area’s sisal rug and the kitchen’s wicker barstools. “For example, the living area coffee table is distressed already. So if you put your feet up, you’re not going to worry you’ve damaged it.” The seaside aesthetic also meant a lot of blue, seen on elements such as the foyer rug, living area armchairs and window shades in the master bedroom. “It’s such a beautiful, tonal, livable color, and we definitely wanted different variations of it,” Pila says. “I used the darker navy blue silk wallpaper in the library to give it that more masculine feel. I love colors like that—they make a space feel very cozy, even though it’s very open and big.” Outside, the majestic oak trees dictated much of the exterior spaces, which posed a creative challenge for landscape architect Orlando Comas. “We had to work around the existing large trees in order to protect and save them,” he explains. Comas focused on injecting the rest of the garden with a more tropical vibe through plants such as monstera, bird of paradise and wild coffee. A year and a half after moving into the home, the wife says the first thing she still does each morning is open all the windows to admire the garden. And she has not a single regret about trusting Pila’s vision from the beginning. “Bea took what we saw as potential in this house and expanded beyond our expectation,” she says. “She’s really in tune. I’ve seen other homes she has worked on, and they’re not like mine at all—she really does pick up on what the owner envisions.”

oasting a British West Indies-style exterior and large pool courtyard, a gracious home in Vero Beach’s Windsor community easily caught the eyes of a Montreal couple. Inside, however, the dark woods, rich colors and antique furnishings weren’t quite their style. Yet they could see the structure had good bones and, with a bit of a refresh, the potential to be an ideal vacation property. To help give the abode the more modern look they were after, the new residents turned to the person who knew the house better than anyone: the original architect, Thomas Hoos, who had designed the home in 2002 for a couple from Vermont. “It was more of a historical design,” he acknowledges. “The new owners wanted to update it and make it much lighter and more refreshing.” More than 15 years later, Hoos reteamed on the project with David Lyons, the original general contractor. They were soon joined by designer Ashley Olivia Waddell and interior designer Courtney O’Bryan Harris, who came on board early to help infuse the fresh, contemporary aesthetic. The work began by overhauling the dark cherry wood kitchen. “One of the main architectural items was to open up the kitchen, which was compartmentalized from the dining room,” Hoos says. The archway separating the two spaces was removed to create a unified kitchen and dining area. The architect reused the existing cabinets where possible, rejuvenating them with white paint, and worked with a custom maker to add infill cabinets to the new layout. Conscious that the owners planned to use the property as a vacation home, the team selected low-maintenance kitchen materials, such as quartz countertops and a Calacatta marble backsplash. Underfoot, the cork flooring was replaced by dark ipe wood, matching the existing look in the other parts of the home. “We kept the dark floors because they worked well as an accent to the new light, white finishes,” Hoos explains. Following the kitchen, the next space to receive a dramatic overhaul was the master bathroom. “It had been designed specifically for the previous owners,” Hoos notes. “We even had a bidet that was a water fountain for their dog.” To create a sleeker, more open space for the new clients, the team separated the shower and toilet from the tub by installing a pair of vanities with floating mirrors, one of the project’s biggest challenges. “The mirrors weigh 300 pounds apiece, and we had to do special modifications to the roof trusses above to support the hanging weight,” Lyons says. The master bathroom now also connects to a dressing room Hoos created after opening up the master bedroom’s walk-in closets. Other spaces in the home were updated with subtle but impactful changes. In the living area, Hoos removed the built-in bookcases and window seats, decluttering the space around the fireplace. Within the refreshed surroundings, Waddell and Harris formed a seating area

LX_PB33_HOM_Hoos_12.indd 139

with a contemporary white sofa, gray-striped club chairs, an ivory stone coffee table and a gray tufted leather chair and ottoman. “The room still has all the historical details, but they work as a contrast to the more modern furnishings,” the architect says. In other areas, a new window brings more sunlight to a guest bedroom, guest bathrooms were outfitted with new fixtures and vanities and a space that housed gardening tools was converted into a mudroom to store pool towels and golfing gear. With the structural changes complete, the home’s colorful walls were painted white, instantly brightening the interiors. “We were trying to mesh the house with the clients’ personalities and the look they wanted,” Harris says. “They had more of a modern style, and the house was traditional. Painting all the walls white immediately made the home feel more simplified and ready to house the clean-lined furniture as well as make the abstract, colorful art collection pop.” Continuing the look in the living area, she and Waddell sourced furnishings in crisp whites and soft grays for neutral pieces against works by artists such as Amande, Lyne Bastien and Lorraine Pritchard. And where they didn’t go contemporary, the pair turned iconic midcentury, balancing the structure’s traditional architectural details with elements such as Hans Wegner-designed seating in the dining area and an Eero Saarinen chair and ottoman in the master bedroom. Outside, where landscape designer Sam Comer refreshed the grounds, the courtyard terraces were properly outfitted for lounging, dining and entertaining. “The pool area now works,” Waddell says. “It’s meant for lounging.” From here to indoors, the brightened-up retreat beckons its Canadian owners eager to escape the cold. “There’s so much more light inside this house,” Hoos says. “It’s a wonderful place to be.”

“THERE’S SO MUCH MORE LIGHT INSIDE THIS HOUSE. IT’S A WONDERFUL PLACE TO BE.” –THOMAS HOOS
