Ronto unveils common area design for Seaglass at Bonita Bay

The Ronto Group announced that plans for the interior design of common areas within the Seaglass at Bonita Bay high-rise tower have been completed. The design by Renee Gaddis Interiors includes stunning finishes in the Seaglass tower’s spectacular two-story lobby.

The 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass tower to be built by Ronto within the Bonita Bay community in Bonita Springs will feature fully-completed, ready for occupancy residences with designer-selected premium quality finishes, including flooring, paint and trim. The Naples-based developer and Wheelock Street Capital acquired the final two high-rise tower parcels at Bonita Bay late last year. Ronto is also developing Naples Square in downtown Naples.

Gaddis created a fresh, distinctive common area design that will have multigenerational appeal while providing a warm note of welcome. The color palette will include neutral whites, cerused wood accents, veined tone-on-tone neutral quartzite slabs, and suspended sea glass strands on the feature wall. The look combines a mix of design styles. The driftwood-like cerused wood in dark brown and gray tones will combine with subtle sea glass accents throughout the space to convey a coastal feeling. Oversized furnishings with classic styles and shapes will create a sense of comfort for the building’s residents while providing a timeless feeling that will serve the interior space for years to come.

The furnishings will be upholstered in neutral fabrics and accented with dark wood details. Classic quartzite slabs accenting the elevator lobby walls and reception desk will be incorporated into the design in a contemporary way. Clean lined 36-by-36-inch flooring, photographic art printed on acrylic rather than canvas, and subtle stainless steel accents will provide additional contemporary elements. The photographic art pieces will have an abstract look and presented in soft aquas, teals, blues, neutrals, and browns reflecting the entirety of the space. The oversized acrylic pieces will be hung using stainless steel standoffs.

The Seaglass tower’s two-story lobby will offer a grand place of entry. The lobby’s reception desk will be executed in a simple transitional design with a contemporary clean-veined tone-on-tone neutral quartzite slab on the front and the sides wrapped by cerused dark gray-brown wood. The wall behind the desk will be clad with the same cerused wood to create a contemporary panel look with simple recesses rather than traditional applied moldings. In the center panel of the wall, stainless steel letters with backlighting will spell out Seaglass.

The lobby’s two-story feature wall will extend behind a floating stairwell with a simple glass railing and cerused wood handrail that will also be included on a second-floor catwalk. The stair risers will match the flooring and be complemented by dark wood treads. The center of the feature wall will be highlighted by strands of lighted sea glass suspended from the second-floor ceiling all the way down to the lobby floor. The lighting will add drama to the strands while creating the illusion of glass floating in space. A coordinating stranded sea glass lighting fixture will extend from the ceiling to approximately eight feet above the floor. The suspended sea glass strands on the feature wall will be flanked by limestone columns. Each side of the feature wall will be clad with the dark cerused wood to create a contemporary paneled look with small recessed horizontal spaces that will present four of the acrylic abstract photographic art pieces.

The tower’s elevator lobbies will have walls clad with the quartzite slab material with horizontal recessed cutouts to provide a contemporary flair. Each elevator door will have a large surround finished with the cerused wood used throughout the space. The walls inside each elevator will present subtly antiqued mirror insets with a cerused wood frame. A unique ceiling treatment will include stainless steel with random-sized horizontal cutouts to allow light to penetrate the elevator cab.

The tower’s second floor will include a news café and connect to an amenity complex previously designed by architect Santiesteban & Associates. Amenities already in place include a theater, guest suites, card and club rooms, a fitness facility that features men’s and women’s spas with steam and massage rooms, a resort-style walk-in pool and spa, and a deck with a covered and screened cabana that includes a bar and grill.

The Bonita Bay community features an on-site marina offering a relaxing dining and lounge experience. Twelve miles of on-property hiking trails and a kayaking and canoeing lodge offer additional recreational possibilities. For those who prefer the beach, bus transportation is provided to a private beach club complete with picnic pavilions, grills, beach chairs, and umbrellas just minutes away on Little Hickory Island.

In addition to the amenity complex, the amenities of the Bonita Bay Club, including three on-site and two off-site golf courses, will also be available to residents of the new tower. The club recently completed an $11 million renovation of its 50,000-square-foot clubhouse and a new Lifestyle Center is scheduled for completion next spring.

The penthouse residences are priced starting at $2.4 million and offer 4,600 square feet of air-conditioned space with a private elevator foyer, a large great room, gourmet kitchen, three bedrooms, plus a den or fourth bedroom, and three-and-a-half baths, or four bedrooms plus a den and four-and-a-half baths. Ceiling heights of 10 feet 8 inches or 11 feet, 4 inches are included per plan. Several of the penthouse residences feature expanded outdoor spaces with exceptionally large terraces, including two private rooftop terraces that will be enjoyed by the residents of the penthouses on the building’s uppermost floor.

Three tower residence great room floor plans, ranging from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet under air, are priced starting at over $1 million. The tower residences will include private elevator foyers, large island kitchens, three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, or three bedrooms plus a den or fourth bedroom, and three-and-a-half baths, walk-in closets throughout the residence, and multiple outdoor spaces that include a gas grill. Ten-foot ceiling heights are included per plan.
