332 Cocoanut is a luxury condo located in Downtown Sarasota. Rachel Blindauer took on multiple roles in this project, working as an interior consultant and interior designer for the condo, along with designing 3D renderings for the interior and exterior design. Rachel also took care of wayfinding, art direction of the website, and creating part of the marketing materials.
Working with Florida architecture firm DSDG architects, Rachel visualized the exteriors and designed the pool, lounge, deck, and common areas for the building. Inspired by the pristine white sands of the local beaches, the pool deck and lounge were clad in warm white and wood, with palm trees dotting the space.
The neutral design of the exterior was transformed into a modern interior design for the condos. Using her skills as a freelance furniture designer, Rachel combined modern furniture designs with designer furniture in the apartments. The light-filled rooms were designed in a neutral palette, with bold elements and colorful accents bringing the interior design to life. The color palettes were varied across the apartments – each suite designed in a highlight color of black, red, yellow, or white. Skillfully mixing patterns and furniture, the suites were designed to be part of a luxe lifestyle.
The luxurious design also formed the highlight of the penthouse design. The penthouses were designed with large waterfall kitchen islands, edge pulls, and large format tiles for a sleek look. The apartments were also equipped with the latest smart home products such as Ecobee Smart Thermostats, USB/Lightning outlets, and Samsung Smart Fridges, assisting the residents in an effortless living.
