BridgesMarsh & Associates is an architectural firm that has designed some pretty impressive mansions in South Florida. HOTR reader Daniel brought them to my attention.

HERE IS WHAT HE HAD TO SAY:

Some of my dreams have been fulfilled, as Bridges, Marsh & Associates (formerly Bridges, Marsh & Carmo) *finally* have a website. They have designed some of Palm Beach’s most fantastic (and equally huge) homes. Details for the top three below.

1) Il Palmetto. Owned by Jim Clark (founder of Netscape). Located at 1500 S. Ocean Blvd. 68,381 total sq. ft (gross total including beach house and boat house), 40,916 a/c sq ft (main house only). Also designed in conjunction with Fairfax and Sammons. This is the 2nd largest home in Palm Beach. Truly amazing. 5.50 acres of ocean-to-intracoastal views.

    Yay! Glad to see this post pulled through!

    I suppose I should have mentioned that Il Palmetto was built in 1927, so if some of its features are a bit odd, you can blame it on its age.

    Also, for a fascinating look at the Koch residence and the owner, take a look at this Architectural Digest link:
