“Man Cave” Project in Boca Raton Receives Design Excellence Award

The South Florida chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) awarded its “Inclusion by Design” 2022 Design Excellence Award to Collective Construction & Design, Inc. (CCD) in Plantation for its “Man Cave” project in Boca Raton. The awards recognize projects by ASID Florida South Chapter members and the greater South Florida design community who embody excellence in interior design.

The scope of the transformative project entailed converting a vacant warehouse space without utilities into a dream retreat for a classic car and motorcycle collector. Along with her husband, Art Kubli, the general contractor of CCD, Eloise Kubli, president of CCD, designed a layout to display the client’s collection with room to grow.  

“We are pleased to have created our client’s dream’ man cave,’ which incorporates his love of classic cars and motorcycles,” Elise Kubli says. “Although the project was a challenge to complete during the COVID-19 pandemic, considering that it was difficult to get supplies and harder to get people to work, we created a beautiful space to reflect our client’s personality.” 

The project started in 2020 and was completed in 2021. It follows hurricane codes and can serve as a safe space if needed. It includes a private bedroom, bathroom and kitchen in the loft/mezzanine area, as well as a sleeping area for the client’s young daughter. The dramatic, large, open, colorful space includes LED and cast-perfect lighting. A Crestron lighting control and the sound system highlight the owner’s vintage muscle car and motorcycle collection.  

The comfortable lounge area features a large-screen TV and a custom grey performance fabric upholstered sectional that offers ample space to lounge. Red leather chairs and iron side tables complement the orange, red, white, black and grey automotive-industrial look. A stainless steel drum table reflects the ceiling, while the durable nylon area rug on the polished concrete floor anchors the seating area. The bar, adjacent to the lounge area, boasts a back bar with a banana creme three-dimensional plexiglass to contrast with the rare original two-tone Panama paint on a 1958 corvette. Leather bar stools from Italy reinforce the orange theme. LED lighting below the raw concrete Caesarstone bar top rotates through various colors to create entertainment excitement. A private bedroom overlooking the auto collection and entertainment area is up the stairs at the far end of the loft. The leather bed and nightstands in durable finishes, along with the car bumper on the wall, continue the antique car theme. A full kitchen in the loft provides additional entertainment space. Charcoal grey tones on the cabinetry and Caesarstone slabs combined with stainless steel, grey leather, and performance fabric on the sleeper sofa offer durable finishes.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran.
