Coconut Grove, Fl - 2008
Ensconced in the subtropical wildness of Miami’s Coconut Grove, the Latterner Residence conjures up images of a modernist spa carved out of the jungle. The surrounding garden is dominated by an “anything grows” strategy. Amidst the green chaos sits the refined structure of exposed concrete and Florida keystone. The permanence of the home’s architecture offers a stark contrast to the ever-changing foliage that surrounds it.
