The award-winning Ronto Group announced that plans for the interior design of common areas within the new 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.
Gaddis has created a common area design that will have multi-generational appeal. The color palette will include neutral whites, cerused wood accents, veined tone-on-tone neutral quartzite slabs, and a stunning iridescent glass mosaic feature wall. The driftwood-like cerused wood in dark brown and grey tones will combine with sea glass accents throughout the space to convey a coastal feeling. Oversized furnishings with classic styles and shapes will create a sense of comfort while providing a timeless feeling. 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. Clean lined 36” x 36” flooring, photographic art printed on acrylic, and subtle stainless steel accents will provide additional contemporary elements. The photographic art pieces will be presented in soft aquas, teals, blues, neutrals, and browns reflecting the entirety of the space.
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 grey-brown wood. The wall behind the desk will be clad with the same clean-veined tone-on-tone neutral quartzite slab 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 stunning sea glass iridescent glass mosaic tile. The LED lighting around the mosaics will add drama while creating the illusion of sea glass on the beach. The glass mosaics 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.
The tower’s elevator lobbies will have walls clad with the quartzite slab material. 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 randomly sized horizontal cutouts.
The Seaglass tower’s second floor will include a news café and connect to an award-winning amenity complex previously designed by architect Santiesteban & Associates. An array of amenities already in place includes a theater, guest suites, card and club rooms, a fully-equipped fitness facility that features men’s and women’s spas with steam and massage rooms, a large 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 onsite marina offering a dining and lounge experience. Twelve miles of on-property hiking trails and a kayaking and canoeing lodge offer additional recreational possibilities. 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 attractions available at 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 spectacular new Lifestyle Center is scheduled for completion this spring.
