“AN IN­DOOR-OUT­DOOR LIFE­STYLE [AL­LOWS] RES­I­DENTS TO HAVE THEIR BOATS DOCKED RIGHT IN THE BACK­YARD WITH A STRAIGHT PATH TO THE BAY.”

Ocean Drive - - Space Abode & Beyond - —CHAD LOWETH

The ex­pe­ri­ence of ar­riv­ing in the house is fab­u­lous—as soon as you park the car in front, you have a sense of the whole house, since the golden mir­rors re­flect the sun­set right be­hind it. How do the ma­te­ri­als re­in­force the de­sign? KP: They in­te­grate the lines of the project and nat­u­ral light. Wood and lime­stone were laid as floors, while pri­vacy glass in the master bed­room was strate­gi­cally placed to pre­serve the open­ness. The idea was to ex­pe­ri­ence the en­tire house from every cor­ner of the prop­erty, in­doors and out­doors. What other de­tails are im­por­tant? CL: The house uti­lizes the new­est tech­nol­ogy, in­clud­ing a large video wall in the liv­ing room, which en­ables a state-ofthe-art show­case for dig­i­tal art; Lutron and Cre­stron [smart home] sys­tems; and stun­ning wa­ter fea­tures in­side and out­side.

KP: The lat­est au­to­ma­tion al­lows you to con­trol lights, shades, wa­ter­falls, mu­sic, and pretty much ev­ery­thing re­motely. The out­door and pool ar­eas are in­ter­con­nected, as well as the pri­vate boat dock.

How does your at­ti­tude to­ward art im­pact your ap­proach to de­vel­op­ing liv­ing spa­ces? CL: I strongly believe any ex­pres­sive high-end de­vel­op­ment needs to bring special at­ten­tion to any art col­lec­tion that will be dis­played. I in­tend to se­lect the col­lec­tion for this prop­erty from my own gallery.

Whom do you en­vi­sion liv­ing in this home? CL: Any­one who ap­pre­ci­ates the good things in life—from busi­ness ex­ec­u­tives and over­seas trans­plants to avid boaters and fam­i­lies with young chil­dren. It will be all about a great life­style! elliman.com

Over­look­ing the park and wa­ter, the master bed­room is decked out in nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als to re­flect the sur­round­ings, while pri­vacy glass pre­serves the sense of open­ness. ƛƞƥƨư: Slated for com­ple­tion later this year, the home is on the mar­ket IRU BPLOOLRQ
