And this luxury house is on the market for $16 million.

The luxury propertiy, which was built in 1929, overlooks 113 feet of open water, and sits on a 16,709-square-foot lot. The home itself measures only 5,800 square feet, but an interior courtyard and multiple indoor/outdoor living spaces lend a larger feel to the space.

The interiors are markedly airy, with plenty of clean lines, antique details, and a neutral color palette reminiscent of Klein’s designs.

Klein’s home, which was designed by Axel Vervoordt, comes equipped with five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, an oversized infinity pool, bamboo trees chosen specifically by the designer, and a private dock. And although Klein is ready to trade Miami for Hollywood, according to Page Six, he plans to be carefully choose the next owner of his Florida gem.

“It may sound crazy, but I wouldn’t sell it to just anyone. It would break my heart,” he told Page Six. “I hate to use the word ‘unique,’ but I have never seen another house like it . . . I want to sell it to someone who appreciates the aesthetic.”

Hadid said: “It’s hard to believe, but it’s still difficult for women to break the business barrier. Through perseverance and hard work, I’ve been able to do so, but it’s been a long struggle. When I started my career in architecture it was very much a male-dominated industry, but in recent years I’ve seen a growing number of talented female architects join the profession and succeed.”
