Designing a master suite means addressing everything from visual impact to circulation. The list of requirements for this master suite was reasonably long, helping to define and shape the connected casual sitting space, ensuite, walk-in-robe and, of course, the master bedroom itself.
The homeowners asked Steve Gliosca of Urbane Projects – who with his team designed the whole house – for the master suite to include connections to the ocean views from most areas, the bathtub included; a relaxed, spa-like appeal; and a large walk-in-robe. Other requests included, the use of natural materials; forward thinking for aged mobility and for the suite to be noise-isolated from the rest of the home, made trickier by their last request – no carpets.
“With this brief we developed a private space entered through its own large pivot door, reminiscent of entering a hotel suite,” says Gliosca.
“From this personal entry we created four distinct zones, with all except the walk-in-robe enjoying the amazing ocean views.
“Part of achieving this was setting the walk-in-robe to the rear of the space with good access and proximity to the ensuite.”
