This incredible building is one of Fort Lauderdale architect Dan Duckham's Mid-Century Modern masterpieces and is now on the market. Once the area’s preeminent Subtropical Modernist architect, this disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright originally housed Robinson's Beauty School in 1965. In 2006, Louis Shuster purchased this post-war gem and undertook its meticulous renovation. To visit the building today is to hear echoes of the American Modernism Wright introduced at Fallingwater and in his Usonian houses on the late 1930s. Every detail of the interior and exterior has been lovingly restored. Just as Wright anchored his buildings to the land through the use of articulated floor plans, exterior planters, low walls and gates, upon entering one feels embraced by the interior dimensions and built- in furnishings. The central interior space rises two stories and is lined with clerestory windows. The space is bathed in cool fluorescent indirect light, which seems indispensably modern once again. Mrs. Robinson's one-time apartment, with windows overlooking the central space that served as the main classroom of the school, now serves as design studio space. Take one of Duckham's trademark spiral staircases through spaces compressed and uncompressed past views of art-adorned nooks and clear, open spaces. Back on the ground floor, glass enclosed offices, library, a conference room and a patio radiate from the central interior space modulated by changes in ceiling height and interior volumes, rather than simply by walls. Located in the heart of Wilton Manors, this incredible building is now available. Approximately 5,800 square feet of working space is comprised of 14 offices, a large conference room, small conference room, four areas designated for storage, one large space designated for a library, a beautiful terrace/garden, kitchen/bar, three bathrooms and an incredible reception area. Wilton Manors offers an incredible lifestyle full of delectable restau
