Inspiration was taken from nature for this house, the tropical hammock of Coral Gables and Biscayne Bay beyond. The House transitions from two engaged stone-clad volumes on the street to a primarily crystalline facade on the Bay-side. The interiors balance a warm and neutral palette with moments of intense color, utilizing terrazzo floors and natural wood to give the house a very Florida tropical feeling. The blues and grey of the carpets and custom light fixtures pick up on the shades of the ocean. The bright bursts of color recall the vibrant colors found in the gardens of the Tropical landscapes. The Furniture layout takes full advantage of the crystalline facade and beautiful bay views while also meeting the Clients programmatic needs.
