Full renovation of a house dating from 1925 in a family compound. Assure was involved in the project from the beginning working with the architects on the preservation, modernization, and addition of new spaces.

The neutral color palette is a response to the existing art collection and was specially mixed to provide a suitable and non-competing backdrop to the works of art. Accents in blush pinks, hunter green and shades of tangerine interpret the clients’ taste.

Materials were selected to discreetly blend with the house’s style and architecture. Assure as always considered appropriateness to context especially the humid Florida climate. A soaring newly roofed courtyard (next to the foyer) functions as a connecting space between older and newer rooms of the house. Lots of glass invites natural light into the heart of the home.

An all-new kitchen /family room /breakfast room area and an outdoor gazebo enhance family life. Back of house improvements added a new laundry, mud room and staff quarters . Antique architectural elements such as the fireplace mantel in the dining room provide a sense of history.
