Meet the Designer – Part 2 of 2
POSTED ON May 9, 2018 - 5000 North Ocean
5000 North Ocean, Singer Island’s upcoming residence tower, is quickly gaining recognition for its inventive use of design. Melding both contemporary modern styles and natural designs, the residence tower hosts an aesthetic that is impossible to replicate anywhere else. 5000 North Ocean tapped into the talents of Bob Martin from The Decorators Unlimited. Using the colors of the sand, sea and sky as an inspiration, Bob Martin and his team created a design that is capturing attention across South Florida.As part two of our interview, Martin shares his insight on the design:
1. How has oceanfront condominium design changed over the past 10 years?
As the building designs have evolved and as Kolter has evolved, they put a great deal of emphasis on outdoor living spaces. Ample spaces, multiple balconies that are deep that can accommodate real furniture. The residences are fortunate to have both sunrise and sunset views and wide terraces on either side. All of the Master Bedrooms have oceanfront views, but some secondary bedrooms have oceanfront views and some have western views. The western views are in themselves spectacular, especially in the evening when you get Lake Worth and the city lights of West Palm Beach and the North Palm area. It’s quite pretty at night. The dual views daytime and nighttime are pretty breathtaking.
2. What aspects of the Master Suites are most memorable?
As far as master living, the residences have very large masters. Most of the masters, if not all have direct oceanfront views and very large closets. They have beautiful open and airy bathrooms with glass shower enclosures.
The water closet areas also have glass enclosures to make things feel more airy, clean and light and very elemental. The use of stone and glass in the cabinetry combine to make the bathrooms feel very architectural themselves. The guest bathrooms are very functional, open and clear. Again, with regard to the flow, they are not compartmentalized. At the core of our residential design, we really focused on how people live today. I think these homes allow people to entertain, yet live any way they want at 5000 North Ocean.
3. I know you also worked with the team on the amenity design. What should we expect to see?
In the lobby area, we were trying to complement and reinforce the clean lines of the architecture of the building. The lobby, as you come in, is very dramatic. Your eye focuses on a beautiful ceiling detail that we’ve designed to complement the wall details. The concierge and reception desk is straight ahead as you enter, so it’s easy to find and easy to greet people, but yet the lobby in the foreground is elegant and sumptuous. It bespeaks a fine 5-star way of living.
Off to the right-hand side of the lobby will be a large social room and gathering space exclusively for the use of the residents. There will be a bar area where there will be seating and TV area. Plenty of room for entertaining or receiving guests or having parties.
In the back along the ocean dune will be a relatively large gym and fitness area with all kinds of state-of-the-art equipment for people to train either themselves or bring a personal trainer to the site. They never have to leave the sanctuary of the building â it’s very nice.
Located directly on the Atlantic Ocean on Singer Island, 5000 North Ocean residents will enjoy a high level of peace and privacy while being close to all of the conveniences of PGA Boulevard nearby. The location itself is bordered by both the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal, offering residents dramatic waterfront views. A short drive away from Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach, and Jupiter, residents will benefit from the close proximity of John D. MacArthur State Park, Palm Beach International Airport, and hundreds of dining venues throughout North Palm Beach.
The 19-story residential tower is currently under construction. The 48-residence building exudes contemporary design, rarely found on the oceanfront in The Palm Beaches. A selection of four floor plans are available, including the spacious two-story Seaglass Residence, which has been called a single-family estate in the sky.
5000 North Ocean encompasses over 4.5 acres with 341 linear feet of direct oceanfront. The private residential tower also offers an oceanfront pool with cabanas, entertainment area and two fire pits. The adjoining resident Club Room will provide a place for residents to gather.
A large-scale architectural model is on display in the oceanfront Sales Gallery, open daily on Singer Island in the Palm Beaches. On-site Sales Executives are available to provide an advance preview of the full-size model kitchen and answer any questions regarding this extraordinary oceanfront property.
