3 HOMEOWNER STORY Leigh Bishop Taub An Advocate for Victims of Childhood Abuse The Alys Foundation was established to provide funding for the purpose of sustaining the long-term community values of Alys Beach. The funds from The Alys Foundation are used to enhance the experiences of our families and to preserve and enhance the quality of life of our community members. Our primary focus is the town of Alys Beach and the Walton County community at large. A few of the local organizations supported by The Alys Foundation: ALAQUA ANIMAL REFUGE CHILDREN S VOLUNTEER HEALTH NETWORK CULTURAL ARTS ALLIANCE OF WALTON COUNTY The reality is that child abuse in particular affects every aspect and every layer of our society. If you re rich, if you re poor, if you re middle class, if you re black or white or whatever your background is, child abuse is in that community. I think it s a good reminder for everybody. This is something that s in all of our communities. EMERALD COAST CHILDREN S ADVOCACY CENTER FOOD FOR THOUGHT OUTREACH LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY RETREAT WALTON COUNTY HABITAT FOR HUMANITY Words by Daniel DeVaughn Imagine learning that a loved one, or anyone close to you, has been the victim of abuse. Now imagine that this person cannot communicate in any way no speech, no sign language. No way to tell you of their pain, no way to tell you their story. Their suffering is silent, but suffering nonetheless. Leigh Bishop Taub, Alys Beach homeowner and attorney in Manhattan, is working to break the silence and to speak on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves: victims of child abuse. Those who do this kind of work, advocating on behalf of infants and toddlers who are victims of abuse, understand the challenging nature of the task at hand. Cases are often akin to a game of hide-and-seek in the dark, rather than your everyday legal tête-à-tête. Indeed, all cases involving pre-verbal victims of abuse are treated, from the get-go, like homicide cases. Leigh, a native of Mountain Brook, Alabama, has two children of her own, twins Jack William and Violet. She is also the Chief of the Child Fatality unit at the Queens district attorney s office in New York City. After graduating from Rhodes College with a bachelor of arts degree, Leigh attended Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law in Dallas, Texas. While there, she took a semester of criminal law, and for her, that was that. She had found her passion. Soon after being admitted to the New York City Bar Association in March of 1997, Leigh began her work as a prosecutor, and later, delved into the labyrinthine world of childhood abuse cases. Today, she is responsible for every investigation and prosecution involving infant homicide and serious assault in Queens County, New York. Her work a saving grace for countless children. These are children, often infants and toddlers, with no way to communicate with the outside world, which makes handling and solving their cases extremely difficult. According to the National Children s Alliance, nearly 700,000 children are abused in the U.S. annually. The youngest children, the ones Leigh serves, are the most vulnerable. Leigh says that though work on cases of this nature is extremely challenging, it is exceptionally rewarding, too. You have to know how to investigate, which makes the police investigation very important. On the one hand, if a crime has been committed, you want to figure that out and you get the baby and other siblings out of that environment. But on the other hand, you can t make a mistake, because if you do you may be taking children out of an environment where you shouldn t be. It s very interesting. It takes a lot of work, and you have to know what you re looking for. I work with the police from the moment a case is called in, or the moment the hospital reports a suspicion, Leigh says. I work with the New York City Police Department to do the investigation, and if an arrest is appropriate, I determine what charges are appropriate. I then carry the case on through the prosecution. So I m involved with the case, these children, from the beginning and then all the way through. The two most common misconceptions about the serious physical abuse of babies and toddlers is that it doesn t exist at all, and that if it does exist, that it skews to low income families. Both could not be further from the truth. It is a tragic problem in all communities, even the apparently idyllic and unblemished. The reality is that child abuse in particular affects all aspects and every layer of our society. If you re rich, if you re poor, if you re middle class, if you re black or white or whatever your background is, child abuse is in that community. I think it s a good reminder for everybody. This is something that s in all of our communities. So though for many people these tragedies seem distant; for Leigh, these cases are a daily, heartbreaking fact of life. So many times I hear the parent saying, I fed the baby, I changed the baby, I rocked the baby and the baby would not stop crying, so I just lost it, or I just shook them, or I just you know, I just lost my temper. According to Leigh, education paired with attentiveness to the family pediatrician can be the flashlight in the dark for these parents and their communities. I think the education is out there that would prevent many of these deaths or serious physical injuries for that (pre-verbal) age group. It s just a matter of the pediatricians communicating those safety issues and then the parents abiding by them. I think that s huge that would be a step in prevention of a lot of this. And parents also understanding that they re going to get frustrated with their babies. No baby ever cried itself to death. Put your baby in a safe place in the crib and go take a shower, or walk in the other room. Go take a break if you feel yourself getting crazy. There is also hope in the form of organizations and advocacy groups across the country that exist to educate parents and advocate for victims of childhood abuse. Education is prevention, and prevention is the only solution to this ubiquitous and devastating issue. Thankfully, the Emerald Coast Children s Advocacy Center, to which the proceeds of the 6th Annual Alys Beach 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run were donated, is working to advocate, prevent, and provide education about childhood abuse in the local community. Since Leigh spends her summers with family at Alys Beach, speaking out about the work done by Emerald Coast Children s Advocacy Center is very important to her. Child abuse is something that exists in all of our communities. I am so proud of this community supporting the efforts of this organization, says Leigh. For parents and their children, there is hope in what often seems like a truly hopeless, often stigmatized, place. Leigh s mission continues, as it does for the brave few who have been called to the field to seek justice for the abused. She speaks the truth about education, prevention, and advocacy, and each day does the arduous and faithful work of speaking for those who cannot speak their own stories, bringing light to their darkness, and bringing grace into the lives of many. Leigh Bishop Taub is the eldest of three girls. She owns a home at Alys Beach and lives in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan with her husband and their 11-year-old twins. 3

4 ALYS GAZETTE FALL / WINTER 2017 When Mary Clark acquired 600 square feet of retail space at Alys Beach, she knew the small space would be perfect for showcasing a very edited collection of home goods. Her newest store, MAST, which sits in the Town Center of Alys Beach, features everything needed to decorate the home, from lighting to furniture, made both locally and across the country. I think of the small space as sort of a storefront window which will completely change seasonally, says Mary. Having owned several retail stores, originally two in Birmingham, Alabama, and currently Outpost at 30Avenue, Mary, who is in the process of building her home at Alys Beach with husband Joe, says that she s been waiting for the opportunity to present itself to open a shop here. 4

5 SECTION TITLE Our hope is that MAST can bring even more beauty and inspiration for the many Alys Beach visitors. MAST is light-filled and airy, showcasing art, furnishings, and home accoutrements in elegant display. It is comfortable, inviting, as one would want home (or perhaps, a home away from home) to feel. Each piece within the shop has purpose or in fact, multiple purposes. A lovely table serves as an island to curios and design books, while also offering itself for client meetings. A bed buoys fine linens, plush pillows, and woven blankets. Each item is thoughtfully selected and placed, and through excellent curation and focus on details, MAST has captured a sense of elegant-adorned minimalism and the refined spirit of life at Alys Beach. Managing the shop and also offering design services is interior designer Susan Byrd. With a design-focused eye and MAST s excellent collection, Susan works to create unique spaces in homes throughout the area. Her design sense offers shop visitors the chance to explore MAST alongside someone who understands how each item works within multiple spaces. Her knowledge of interiors helps each purchase become even more purposeful. The pieces MAST carries have been chosen carefully for their quality and craftsmanship, but also for their beauty. Abstracts by William McLure and soulful photography by David Hillegas anchor the room with their emotive qualities. And through even the smallest, simplest gestures of hospitality, MAST helps to guide visitors in creating a home filled with life. Alongside fine art and beautiful furnishings, the shop features a wall of colorful, fresh flowers. We thought a bucket shop would be a fun addition to the town. Picking up a bouquet for your home (or your home-away-from-home) is a nice way to start a vacation. Together, Mary and Susan have created an inviting space in which to envision one s own home and to consider how the beauty of art and design come together in warm hospitality. Alys Beach is such a beautiful and inspiring town, says Mary. Our hope is that MAST can bring even more beauty and inspiration for the many Alys Beach visitors. 5

9 SECTION TITLE The Poetry of Architecture Bobby Words & Interview by Cassie Condrey Images by Rob Culpepper As part of an ongoing series, we will spend time with the architects who have shaped this special place we call Alys Beach. Their creativity transcends their architectural work, and their lives inspire us to seek beauty. We spent the day with Bobby McAlpine in his Atlanta office as he gave us a look into his life, his process, and his daily work. 9

10 ALYS GAZETTE FALL / WINTER 2017 Bobby McAlpine believes in the conflict between opposites. Where there is something outlandish, may there be an apology for it. Where there is something grand, may there also be humility. It is in the interplay that we find drama and complexity and, above all, truth. The homes he designs reflect this their interiors a play of shadow and light, their exteriors a dance between the sublime and the simple. His responsibility in his work, as he sees it, is to know his clients first and then to create the spaces in which they will feel most themselves. In designing their house, he gives them a home, a place to rest. He is generous in his understanding of who his clients are, what drives them, what matters to them, how their homes might heal them, often serving as priest to confessor, doctor to patient, and very often, a friend. A conversation with Bobby is like the spaces he desires to design, spaces in which you are invited, then held. And he himself is the embodiment of the philosophy that guides his work. He walks into his Atlanta office wearing a black shirt under a black jacket, black rimmed glasses, jeans. Like his homes, he is striking, yet there is no easy answer as to why. His demeanor is Zen-like, as if he knows the answers to questions you have never thought to ask. He is, in conversation, the perfect mixture of shadow and light, of the sublime and the simple, the outlandish and the humble. He shares his wisdom, his creativity, his particular view on this world and the life within it with generosity and joy, emotional honesty, and always with the ultimate goal of telling the truth. At sixty, Bobby McAlpine is indeed all the man he has ever been. 10

11 An interview with Bobby McAlpine Cassie: You grew up in Alabama, lived most of your life in South. How has its landscape, diversity, its idiosyncrasies, even your history there, influenced your work? Bobby: You know I m sure I don t know, because I didn t have the alternative experience. I did grow up in tiny, sawmill towns that only had the millworkers, where the houses were owned by the mill. Over time, throughout my childhood, we graduated to very slightly larger towns, one after the other, so I lived in places anywhere between six hundred to, at the most, three thousand people. So my experience has been rural. I don t know why people s makeups are a certain way, but my longings were beyond where I was as a kid. I really dreamed my way out of there. It wasn t from exposure as much as it was, at least in part, from anemia, what was missing. I think a lot of time our calling has to do with what we have seen and sometimes it s what we crave. So I think at a very, very early age, that turned me into who I am and who I ve become. C: So, it was a place, in a way, but also what that place wasn t providing for you, that set your course? B: A little bit, but by the same token, being the South, and being the particular time period when I was a little boy, there were two and a half channels on television that we could get with an antenna, and there really weren t many distractions. There seemed to be a lot of time. And heat. And boredom. And that s a great formula for a creative person. I do not envy a child today that is inundated with stimulus to the point that it doesn t have to be imagined. Mine did have to be imagined so it sent me down this road. Heat, isolation, boredom: they re great. There s almost a delirium to it. I don t feel that it s hot anymore, but the kind of heat that I remember as a child was hallucinative. Sort of mental traveling. Be still if you can move mentally and not physically, do that. C: Were either of your parents creative? It seems that your mother encouraged your interests. B: She encouraged me. When I was five, I started drawing house plans, and it became a daily activity for me. She became my editor. When she was 40, she went back to college to study interior design and during those years I was eight or nine years old. I drew her projects for her. Part of her work was to draw plans to scale and that was easy for me. I had already taught myself. I had the days free to go see every new framed house, to walk the foundation to see how things were put together and I didn t know anything about trespassing. I had the keys to everything. C: You re called all over the country and beyond in your work. You wrote that you want your homes to feel that they ve been there forever, and they all do have a deep sense of place and spirit, and authenticity. And of story, of course. When designing a home, how do you relay that story? Where do you begin? B: I ve spent my whole life just lining my own interior with observation and nuance, so the archives in me are self-made and gathered by hand. The wonderful thing in my life that I understand more as I get older and deeper in practice is that whoever is coming toward me and sitting in front of me is going to awaken some faction in me that has never had a chance to have a voice. It s different parts of me, like the kid on the back row, somebody that had some timidity or simply no pertinence yet, until this person, this client, shows up and awakens it. Each new person and destination helps me exercise all that s in me and helps me grow 11

12 ALYS GAZETTE FALL / WINTER 2017 myself. It s kind of delicious every single time. Consequently, I ve come more and more to care about my clients and not to see them as a means to an end as much as I get to journey with them. I get to be left better than I was before I met them, and I get to go to the gym of myself and do a little workout with them. And you just don t ever know. I m really careful not to have any preconceptions. I m careful not to draw anything until I ve seen the property, until I ve heard them out. Nailing the DNA of it, figuring out what it s for and what they need it to be, allows it to become their greater body. It s really them, enlarged. And when you get it right, the home that they create for themselves and for the people they love and for their friends and new friends is like no other place in the whole world. No other place makes them feel the way that place does. That place cannot be duplicated in any possible form because it is so driven by who they are in particular. And that becomes what is priceless about it. C: So there is a kind of marriage between their sensibilities and your understanding of them. Do you feel parts of your own soul become part of the spaces you create? B: I m sure there is some of me, but I m a vessel in that exercise. One thing I thought a lot about in the new book that s coming out is how much the emotional accuracy of set design, of Hollywood film, are really good influences, and they really support my suspicion about how I like to fuse and introduce things that have never met before. Elements, styles, cultural pieces I really feed on the conflict and how they awaken and embolden things in each other when they see each other for the first time and there s a knowingness about how opposite they are, how deeply they belong to be together. you re kind of itching and twitching and preoccupied with how things aren t quite what they should be, and so you can t get onto the topic of life. C: Once you know the person, understand what they want and need, how do you let the inside speak? You draw the floor plan first, right? B: Always. It s hard to say whether the furniture or the floor plan is first because they really come simultaneously. Going onto a property, what I m looking for mostly is personal exchange between people. And between the place and its environment which is the driver, it s the thing that s bigger than anything I m doing, it s why you re there be that an ocean or a lake or a pastoral view. Generally I do start with the furniture plan. I m a little different that way in that I like to set up camp and the first questions are who am I communing with and what s larger than me? Then, what do I want at my side? Where is the fire? How close do I want people to me? The next layer of scenario is what is in sight of it and in support of it and has a shared energy. Be that a place to dine or commune, be it cooking or eating, those become the other pieces and then the architecture begins to drift down around all of those things, along with the restrictions and other realities that we have to deal with. Ultimately it is conceiving of its intimacy and its internal life and exchange way prior to giving a single concern to what it looks like. I don t care because it s not time to care about that. And there s a certain amount of faith that goes into it if you care about the content of it and the experiential qualities of it, it most likely will be beautiful. C: You re starting with what matters B: You are. I don t start with the body. some vehicle of transportation that sends you to a place or a time or a fusion that is another side of you. C: I love what you said about second homes, that they can be the real you. B: It tends to be what you do when nobody s looking. The first house we did in Alys Beach was on the ocean, the Crane residence. For that project, because Alys Beach is what it is and because there are just a limited few houses on the ocean, on the front line, I wanted the house to be strong and odd and sort of queer to your memory so that you can t quite pin what country it s from or who it might have been for. So there is an exotic kind of feeling about that that I wanted for the house. I wanted to do a house that almost looked like it was built in anticipation of the arrival of some foreign dignitary that you can t quite name. Almost as if it were built for an official visit. So it s a bit of a palace that way. Once we got to the inside of that house, I wanted it to feel like you had gotten locked up and spent the night in a Parisian department store. So there really weren t residential references; there were other sexier things going on. C: Alys Beach has that undercurrent. You re driving down 30A and suddenly you think, where am I, what is this place? B: And it happens fast, and short, and it s over, but you want more of it. It s like you fell in a white hole and you go, where am I, when is this? C: Do you listen to music when you design? What artists and types of music? Is that changing with each project? B: I do. My mother must have had a fear of silence because the stereo was on all day long, day and night, and I became Be still if you can move mentally and not physically, do that. C: You say, The best house is the house that looks like how we feel on the inside. What is your process of getting to know how your clients feel? How do you go about creating a space that will feel like home for them? B: There s no formula for it. At the start of the relationship I am very often a stranger, and sometimes it s easier to talk to a stranger than a friend. It becomes a priest and confessor dynamic where they can say the things they dare not say elsewhere. You want to tell your architect the truth about who you are because if you thought about it enough, if you ve wanted it long enough, you ve really longed for it and you probably have if I m there you know that it s only going to work if it is the truth. You want to build the truth. And part of why you do is because you haven t been able to find it. You ve given up, turned over every leaf and stone, and it s just not out there and so you are resorting to building it yourself which is a reckless jumping off the cliff, throwing all sensibility to the wind, and puts you in the extreme danger zone financially and otherwise and then there s the question: will you get it right? It s why it s so deeply important that you hire the right person, find the right partner in it. To do it is wonderful. The level of intimacy is so different being an architect who does houses or one who does interiors than it is if you are one that works for developers or does high rises or hospitals. It s a completely different profession. For me it feels like the highest profession, because it is the most in touch you can be with another human being. And if they re hiring you to design a home, it s probably because they need it. It s valid, there s nothing frivolous about it really. It may be about beauty, it may be about pretty things, it may be about a lot of things, but most importantly it s about craving for once in your life to bring everything to rest so that you can get on with higher subjects and other subjects and things that really matter more than that. When you get fitted beautifully into your own place then you are plugged into everything bigger than that and until you are, sometimes C: What gives a home a sense of longevity, permanence? What makes it feel like it s been there forever? B: Part of it is being a little free-wielding in where I beg, borrow, and steal to tell the story. Sometimes I will borrow elements of something French, something English, Belgian, something Dutch, that come together to create a formula that has the right flavoring and temperament and the right emotional quality to it in its styling or in its sense of proportion about itself. Its plumpness, its kindness, its big eyes, or half-bakedness or its naivety tends to show up through those devices. So it involves that select combination of ingredients and a lot of side-stepping, which is side-stepping trend. I want to make sure that I solve the riddle in such a way that makes it untraceable, and so if there is a material or a trend or something that has fallen into great popularity over the last five or ten years, I m probably going to try to solve that riddle in a vaguer or duller or different way so that I m not caught in the act. A horror story for me would be that you walk in one of my houses and because there is a tumbled tile pattern that was popular between 2007 and 2009, that house forever has a stamp on it. I am always trying to wean out the things that are going to tell on me. When you re successful at that, the gift is timelessness. When that happens it makes room for you. It has no labels so the story is unwritten, wide open for you, and wide open for next generations to come in too. C: Speak to your feelings about Alys Beach and what it is like to design a home there. B: In Alys Beach, there s an element of the exotic that comes into play. I feel an added element when I m working in a place like Alys Beach that part of my objective is to unleash permission for the strange and the unexercised. Because what should happen and what should be made able to happen in Alys Beach is what can t happen at home. It s essential that you remember that you re there for the cure, and part of the cure is detaching yourself from your real life and putting yourself in addicted to music. It s on wherever I am, all the time, to a fault. My favorites drift. I love voice. It can be male or female. The genre is pretty across the board. I do think we are in the richest musical period in my life right now. We have so much exposure through this (points to phone). It s crazy. I grew up listening to what was on the radio which was twelve songs at a time, worn out before the next batch was allowed to come through. And it s different right now. We have the whole universe at our fingertips and there s so much room for so many artists. I try to buy new music every week. I m addicted to just feeding that library. C: Are you a collector? The interiors of your homes feature highly curated pieces, with thoughtful details in varied collection; are you constantly collecting? B: I really have been known more as a purger. I collect, I assemble, and when I m ready to strike the set and create a new environment for myself, I tend to almost sell it all to clients. Because I have a new story to tell, a new movie to make, so I don t tend to cleave to things. But over the last few years I ve noticed that a few things just simply will not leave me. And nobody wants them so they re following me around. Most of them are critters Plaster of Paris bears and bronze birds and stuffed things and strange, odd things that are animal-based, spirit animal kind of things that seem to only belong to me. That tribe of things will follow me and my partner Blake into the new house. And of course we ve recollected because there was a new story to tell and it s not just my story, but my story with Blake. He has also put a whole new shift on the question of where does Bobby live? Bobby lives with Blake. Blake and Bobby s house looks like both of them. It s both of us. I can t honestly say that I ve done that before. C: Is there anything you want to add? B: In terms of where we are today, I think we re changing as a species. I think we are becoming much more complex creatures 12

13 BOBBY MCALPINE than we have been. I think it s because our realities are more dualities now. I think that people that are growing up now are torn between what s really happening and what is on their phones and the internet. And I think there is reality in both of them. They coexist. The level of exposure that comes from this (gesture to phone), culturally and otherwise, is fast-tracking a lot of things. It s making it harder to know what s real. And when it comes to trying to create a place for yourself, it s changing what that looks like. We re definitely in a phase right now where there is so much information coming at us, that we tend to want to put ourselves in an aspirin bath and get out of the noise. So, what our interiors look like, what our houses are looking like is changing because the medicine is needing to change. What represents a cure is not bounty as it was 25 years ago. The cure then was that I have all these layers and layers of things and stuff, and now that is disquieting. And what you need is something else. We re evolving, definitely. One of the many curated artifacts in McAlpine s office. C: How do you find the balance between the dualities? B: I m curious about it. I m riding with it. I love everything that s happened to me. And I have a great inkling that I m going to love everything that s going to, too. The great period of the rebirth of modernism and the popularity again of modernism has actually been a great ingredient to put into what is now a world that is multicultural and has many different time realities to it. When you watch what they re doing in film, the time periods are fused and confused, and what is fashion now is anything done beautifully, anything that gets the point across. It s not that hemlines are this, it s anything that is exactingly right, right now, in that circumstance, in that situation. That s different. We re getting to live pretty rich lives. How you house a beast like that is going to be a new riddle for us. What s our obligation to bring it to rest and to peace? Part of what I m trying to come to some admission of is that your job as a human being changes in different decades and different ages and time periods too, and maybe what I am for right now is a little different than what I was for ten years ago. My perspective is different so I want to use it. I want to add it. I don t want to exchange it, I want to add it, to everything. There s an author, Anne Lamott, I love her, there s a line in one of her books, she s talking about her son Sam who s a young adult at the time of the writing. She simply says, Right now he is every age he s ever been. (Pauses) And that pulled the floor out from under me, it was so gorgeous. How did those plain words say that? Because it s true, it s what I feel myself I m all of me. And I want to be all that s coming at me too. C: It is good to be all of it instead of being at war with whatever parts of it. B: Yes, I don t want to be 30. I want to be this. It s good. C: Your work gives people an avenue to finding that what they want to be. It s wonderful that you re so generous with your creativity, your spirit. B: It s a privilege.

In dog years, so to speak. We mark time with memories filled by the pups who tag along by our side. We reflect on the times our dogs have sensed our sadness and leaned their warm bodies against our legs. We smile upon the times when we returned home from work, only to find a shoe chewed or a trash can tipped, and a dog, our sweet dog, giving us eyes that we cannot help but forgive. Dog years to us, to dog people, they are the sweetest. 14

21 GOOD LIBATIONS In order for something a drink, a place to be neat, the elements that make up that something must each be excellent. Pleasing. The art of being neat requires standing strong on one s own merit, not to be masked by unnecessary, half-hearted ornamentation. Being neat encourages (in elegant subtlety, not pretentiousness) all things in surrounding company to the same standard. Alys Beach s bottle shop and bar is filled with the best of company. Each piece of barware, each bottle of craft liquor and wine has been carefully brought into the fold for its quality and beauty. Individually, each element is a work of art; together, the collection is an experiential exhibit. The cocktails are beautiful in presentation, perfect in proportion, but also, they re more than that. They elicit a sensory response of taste and sight, but also sound. As bartenders deftly move cocktail shakers behind the bar, keeping metronomic beat, patrons are invited to indulge their senses in the spirit, imagining as they sip, If this cocktail were a piece of music, what could it be? So as we present these recipes to you, we also share some of our thoughts on the music that might give them even more flavor. Good drink, good company, and good music. Simple pleasures that alone bring joy, but together, transcend. Open throughout the day, NEAT carries the tonal duality of both day and night, of light and dark. For a cool cocktail straight off the beach, for late night, intimate talks over a deep whiskey drink, the elements of NEAT provide space for the moment. 21

24 ALYS GAZETTE FALL / WINTER 2017 Fonville Press A new chapter begins Fonville Press is calling back to its roots: the shelves lined with Southern literature and beautiful books on art and design ; the walls featuring vintage photos of its namesake, John Fonville; even the beloved Fonville Hill has been reiterated in the new Fonville Park. Throughout the history of Alys Beach, Fonville has been a community favorite. We ve met neighbors at Fonville Press for coffee and sat in the early morning hours to read there in peaceful solitude accompanied by the psst of the espresso machine and the ambient hush of the ocean. The story of John Fonville and the story of Fonville Press are integral to our community, and we are proud to announce the coffee-shop-turned-café s newest chapter. Fonville Press is calling back to its roots: the shelves lined with Southern literature and beautiful books on art and design; the walls featuring vintage photos of its namesake, John Fonville; even the beloved Fonville Hill has been reiterated in the new Fonville Park. And as Fonville Press reflects on its history, it has also grown and expanded upon its theme of fostering community life. Construction at Fonville Press is now complete and it is open for business, serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week, and serving dinner five nights a week. The new menu has been carefully developed and features fantastic sandwiches, salads, and dinner entrées. Guests can choose from a carefully selected set of 20 wines, each served by the glass or by the bottle, a variety of pressed teas, or even house-made, old-fashioned craft sodas. With a drink of choice in hand, visitors can join together on the back patio, gathering around the fire pit and enjoying live music while children play on the new, natural-elements playground, and soak up live music. Fonville Press has entered a new part of its Alys Beach story, but throughout all the exciting changes, the spirit of this intimate stop along 30A remains inviting visitors and homeowners, friends and neighbors to gather together to read, relax, and enjoy life together in this special town we call our own. Above: Guests can gather outside on the patio, under the lights at night, and sit around the fire pit for live music. Below: The new Fonville Park has been renovated to provide an all-naturalelements playground. The path to the park spans from Turtle Bale to the back door of Fonville Press. 24

25 Images by MK Sadler and Jack Gardner. Words by Christian Wagley. THE CASTRO HOME Native Floridians Anna and Dan Castro really love water. So even with the nearly infinite volume of the Gulf of Mexico little more than one block away, water flows through every level of their Alys Beach home. Aligned along Charles St. and its direct path to the Gulf Green, and oriented to overlook Palmera Park, the home features generous proportions and plenty of water inspired by Caliza Pool. That s in part because the pool was the first place the couple visited at Alys, and the connection was instant. We were hooked right when we drove past the butteries, says Dan. I felt like I was in a different country altogether. We visited Caliza and then immediately went to see a realtor next. For their water-loving home, Anna and Dan retained Alys Beach Town Architects Marieanne Khoury-Vogt and Erik Vogt of Khoury Vogt Architects. Marieanne and Erik brought the grand scale of Caliza to the home s exceptionally tall entry loggia, setting a tone that continues upon stepping inside to the great room, with its 14 ceiling, scalloped profile, and exposed beams, along with floors of Dominican shellstone. From there it s back outside into the atrium court, a large and tall outdoor room that forms the heart of the home and its aquatic focus. At the middle of the court is a square pool, centered beneath an opening to the sky, which simulates the classic impluvium of ancient Roman homes that was used to collect rainwater. This is a favorite family spot in which Anna, Dan, and their four children can all enjoy the water, along with a smaller spa pool in a niche to the side. Turned wood columns rise above each corner of the impluvium pool, next to custom copper fountains and hanging brass bead curtains. A sky blue decorative woodwork ceiling with cutouts of stars simulating a night sky surrounds the space, and there s an outdoor fireplace for chilly evenings. The adjacent MASTer suite includes a large round window in the bedroom, featuring a scalloped inlay and views through to the atrium. The floor and shower tiles are smooth gray concrete, and a clerestory brings a cascade of light down the wall of the MASTer bath. A sofa attached at the foot of the bed is a family-friendly feature that allows the Castro s four children to gather with the couple for bedtime stories. However, the suite can also provide ample privacy and a bit of an escape. We were able to be generous, especially with the MASTer bedroom opening up onto a complete private court that in turn also opens up to the private bathroom, says Marieanne. We wanted to make the suite feel very spa-like, very zen-like. The second floor has four bedrooms, including one where the couple s three girls sleep. It features three queen-sized beds on a raised platform, offering plenty of extra space for sleepover friends. The lounge terrace is the outdoor space above the atrium. There s outdoor dining and a summer kitchen where meals can be prepared while the children play in the park below and the sounds of flowing water in the atrium pool pleasantly rise to the terrace. It s the high view to the pool that brings an unexpected delight. Gazing down into the impluvium, a mosaic of fish in the bottom of the pool contrasts with the dark blue background and flows in a geometric pattern that appears to put the fish in perpetual motion. The fish mosaic was one of a number of features of the home that Anna and Dan had a difficult time fully visualizing on paper and weren t entirely sure were necessary. But they had agreed not to limit the creativity of the designers and had told them to let their creative juices flow a decision the couple is glad they honored. It took that pool to a different level, says Dan. It s like an art piece. It s just a few more steps higher to the pool terrace, where yes more water appears as a stunning rim-overflow pool perched some 40 above the ground amongst the roof lines of the town. Views are expansive in all directions, including up to the sky. My favorite part of the home is the rooftop pool at night, says Dan. When it s pitch black out it looks like a planetarium up there. Nearly every night we see shooting stars. For Marieanne and Erik, the home reflects the culmination of hundreds of deliberate choices, both large and small. Access to Gulf breezes and sunlight is planned to create spaces where you want to linger, says Marieanne. Views are extended beyond to other spaces, helping to frame each scene and make spaces appear larger. There were many little decisions we spent a lot of time thinking about and fretting about so that the experience for the owner and their guests is cohesive, says Marieanne. That s reflected in how the home meets the Castro s varied needs. Anything we need the home for, it s capable of doing, says Dan whether that s hosting a party with friends, or relaxing with family. The house is like a chameleon. Dan appreciates how collaborative the project was and gives special praise to Davis Dunn Construction and interior designer Shirlene Brooks for carrying-out the extremely meticulous and demanding elements of the home s design. They took it beyond our wildest dreams, says Dan. They showed us pictures and it was hard to wrap our minds around it but we trusted them, and the end result was jaw-dropping.
