Featured in various magazines, such as Restless Living and Tropic Magazine, the idea was to create a timeless and calm ambiance that would enhance everyday living. Set in a corner lot in Bal Harbour Village, this project was faced with a major challenge. “Corner lots are extraordinary in the sense that they provide an immense amount of natural light for the interior of the home. At the same time, when you have two facades facing the street, privacy becomes a really important factor that needs to be considered.”
As a consequence, a play of volumes and planes that essentially create a playful balance between maintaining the privacy of the interior as well as unfolding the magnificent views towards the exterior landscape were developed. An open-floor plan and double-height ceilings for the interior of the house reflect the same elegance and mix of textures of the outside, achieved by natural stone and smooth stucco.
