Inside a University President's Tropical Miami Home

When a new home was needed for then University of Miami President and former Clinton administration cabinet member Donna Shalala, the design needed to be intimate and comfortable for her family as well as accommodating to the hundreds of guests she would be hosting in an official capacity. With an architectural design overseen by Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, then head of the university's school of architecture, interiors firm Taylor & Taylor used natural materials and a tropical palette to create a welcoming residence. The project is featured in the firm's new book, Classic Florida Style: The Houses of Taylor & Taylor, available from The Monacelli Press.
