Constructed almost 80 years later this contemporary luxury house can be found on fabulous La Gorce Island, in Florida’s Miami Beach. This modern estate is comprised of three distinct and separate structures including the main house, a guest pavilion and a further building for the servants and all the utilities essential for maintaining this contemporary luxury house.
Designed by prestigious architects ‘ Touzet Studio ’ this dazzling waterfront house is immaculate in every respect. The pristine white exterior of the house positively radiates prosperity and well being. You would expect to enter this contemporary luxury house and be enveloped in an atmosphere associated with glamorous living and affluence. In this respect you wouldn’t be disappointed. The dramatic and opulent features of the spacious interior are emphasized by the same pure white finish as the exterior. One of the most breathtaking of these is the stunning sweep of the elegant curving stairway. The sinuous sculptural forms of this focal point twist through the core of the main waterfront house, linking all floors and terminating on a fabulous roof terrace. These curvilinear elements remain unadorned. The powerful impact made by the feature staircase is achieved through the ever changing play of light and shadow on its perfect white surfaces.
