Designed by Juan C. Ricardes, Int'l Assoc. AIA, this home is of contemporary style located in sunny Florida, USA, sitting in an urban infill lot, conscious of the existing buildings and site as well as functionality.
Clean lines and bold architecture moves relate peacefully to the area with its own personality. The modern flow of the home allows for an inviting open space downstairs with a more traditional look and feel on the upper floor. Both areas are engaged sharing the main core open space between floors. The design layout and architecture is about sharing the inside spaces and activities engaging to the tropical landscape allowing for maximum efficiency of energy resources and spaces.
A detached garage at the rear of the property is accessed via tumbled block drive through a tandem covered porte-cochere.
Natural materials like wood, metals, concrete and stones are all synchronized to create a modern but cozzy feel.
