Located on the gulf coast of Sanibel Island in Florida, this 6,000 square foot residence was designed as a winter retreat and a future retirement home for a Chicago businessman and his wife. It was designed to capture the beautiful gulf views, with all the common areas looking out over the ocean. The upper floor consists of the master bedroom suite complete with his and her individual bathrooms and dressing areas. It is accessible via a curved grand staircase in a two story sky lit space. The sleeping area looks out over the ocean and has a private terrace.
