Coconut Grove, Fl - 0
This striking residence was designed for a heavily-treed property in Coconut Grove’s Camp Biscayne neighborhood. The home rests upon an exposed concrete base while floating above dramatic water features. Unlike many Miami locations, there is no need to raise the home above the existing grade. At eighteen feet above current sea level, the home is perched upon a ridge of oolitic limestone which represents the highest land in Miami-Dade County.
The clients expressed a strong desire to continue the regional modernism design sensibilities expressed by the mid-century Florida residences of Paul Rudolph.
