“The plan for this 5,500 square foot private residence located along the Intracoastal Waterway is influenced from by the views, the irregular pie-shaped lot, the requirement that garages cannot face the street and the need to locate a septic field on the property.


All of these criteria influenced the plan and geometry of the home, and one of the most prominent features is the cantilevered second floor at the front façade.


On the site, there is a very clear distinction between public and private spaces. From the street the front entry is concealed behind a wood fence which provides privacy from the street.


There is an intimate fire pit area tucked off of the entryway. Once inside the house, all of the common areas all have a view of the pool, which has a continuous negative edge around the entire perimeter and the Intracoastal Waterway beyond. The master bedroom on the second floor has a large private balcony facing the water.


The guest bedrooms on the second level are separated by the main staircase which is enclosed by a skylight and horizontal louvers above. All of the guest bedrooms face north and open onto a shared balcony.


The entire building is clad with a white limestone, which the same material is used throughout for the interior and exterior flooring.


All of the louvers and trellises are in response to the home’s orientation, to provide shade to the large glass openings.”
