MIAMI BEACH MODERN
Miami Beach, FL
8,400 sq ft, 5 bedrooms plus 2 br guest house and staff quarters
GEORGIAN RIVER ESTATE
6,900 sq ft, 4 bedrooms plus 2 br guest house
The most coveted parcel of land on the island required a residence of similar pedigree.
A fictional historical narrative organizes the structures on the site. A formal Georgian manor house is the focal point, while a secondary kitchen house dependency and coordinating carriage house appear to have been added at a later date. Subtle architectural detailing supports the narrative and differentiates the structures. A modern glazed steel clad hyphen bridges between the manor house and kitchen house as evidence of a exquisite modern renovation.
The carriage house is the public face greeting the street and features guest quarters above and a garden potting conservatory. An outbuilding flanks the raised formal garden and is modeled on a dovecote.
