Rich European character imbues this Boca Raton residence. Inspired by the owner’s love for Mediterranean architecture and sensibilities, the house features many architectural surprises.
The home’s main axis is positioned around a central rotunda, an architectural design based on old Renaissance architecture. The grand foyer tricks the eye with a series of arches and columns that support a groin-vaulted ceiling. In the adjacent formal living room, floor-to-ceiling windows preserve the waterfront view and soak both rooms with light.
Plush chenille furniture, faux painted walls, and silk window drapings keep the interiors comfortable and intimate.
The master suite comprises a cozy study, breakfast area, dual master baths, and dressing areas. The coffered ceiling in the bedroom adds a nice architectural detail.
Ames International Architecture often collaborates with local contractors, developers, interior decorators, and additional home development service providers locally and nationally. Our primary collaborator in Boca Raton, Florida was Tamara Tennant. The design was created and came to fruition in the summer of 1999. This specific Boca Raton estate was featured in Florida Design, volume 10 (No. 4).
