Inspiration for this house was taken from nature, 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, neutral palette with moments of intense color, using terrazzo floors and natural wood to give the residence a very Florida tropical feeling. The blues and grey of the carpets and custom light fixtures pick up on the shades of the ocean. Bright bursts of color recall the vibrant tones typically found in tropical garden landscapes. The furniture layout takes full advantage of the crystalline facade and beautiful bay views, while also meeting the client’s programmatic needs.
