Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida: A Decade of Design

In 2013, B+G Design graced the first cover of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida with a modern bachelor pad at The Ritz-Carlton Residences in Ft. Lauderdale. Fast forward to 2023 where the magazine is celebrating a decade of design and taking a look back at iconic projects.

Mod Makes the Man: The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale

Consider their recent revamp of a 19th-floor condominium at The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale. They were hired by a former client who had been so pleased with their past work that this time he gave them carte blanche. So B+G was decisive: They gutted the previously occupied 3,000-square-foot space, leaving only some travertine floors and the better part of the kitchen intact. From there, they devised an individualized plan, reflecting the man and his lifestyle. Recently single, he would be moving from a 10,000-square-foot home in a gated community to this smaller spot by the sea.

What the home would not be was some chrome cliché of masculinity or the South Florida fallback of sparseness and white-on-white. “We specialize in not all white,” Sugerman says. “People think of contemporary as minimalist and austere, but we like to make it rich.” 

And rich it became. Sugerman and Loor implemented an open floor plan, but one that promotes flow into discrete zones, for example, for dining and conversation; b+g’s goal was to make an ample space seem even more expansive. Bespeaking an airiness, the apartment floats, at times appearing to merge seamlessly with its panoramic views of the city’s waterways and skyline. In every room, the pair employed horizontal lines and furnishings to encourage a feeling of endlessness. Colors are assertive, with purple and oyster hues throughout, and red and cerulean making bold appearances.
