Miami, FL – Multiple rooms, both interior and exterior, have been added to a non-descript, one-story home transforming it to properly interface with Miami’s tropical climate. While the effect is striking, minimal alterations were made to the existing structure.
The house is entered through a 20’x30’x20’ volume where a reflecting pool activates the space with reflection and luminance. The large main room is the hub organizing the house into private and public realms. Generous spaces with oversized windows overlook the pool and canal. A open 60′ x 20′ x 20′ volume at the rear of the home provides the sense of a room enclosure for outdoor living. A large circular column contains an outdoor shower open to the sky.
The second floor contains a secluded courtyard garden, off the master bedroom, for private activities. The residence provides a flexible infrastructure for the participation and enjoyment of all the home’s residents and guests.
