Miami Beach Canopy House


The client came to Touzet Studio with a large property that featured 35 mature oaks in a native Florida Hammock. It was a design priority to maximize the views of these magnificent specimen oaks from the house.

The living room is placed in the center of two oak trees with floor-to-ceiling glass on both sides so that throughout the day, shadows will fill the space. Exterior areas include a rooftop deck, positioned to showcase the views of the water and skyline, and a backyard with a pool.

In addition to the shade produced by the surrounding trees, the house creates its own architectural canopy as the master suite angles away from the rest of the residence. The specimen oaks work alongside the South Florida sunlight to produce beautiful shadows to veil this Miami Beach Canopy House.
