Mellet & Human Architects designed a previous house in South Africa for this client, who again asked the firm for a design on an exclusive waterfront lot in Bay Point, Miami. It is situated in a well-established gated community with easy waterway access to Biscayne Bay. Due to scarcity and of land here, the request was that full use be made of the development rights on the property. The design also had to conform to the strict hurricane and flood level building codes set by the City of Miami.
The client is a lover of modernism, and the resulting architecture is reminiscent of the modernist phrases “less is more “, and form follows function “. Ground floor accommodation mainly consists of large open plan living areas, designed to make full use of the warm south Florida climate, and relaxed way of living. Sliding doors provide a link to the infinity pool entertainment area with views of the adjoining waterway and lake with private boat dock. Further ground floor accommodation includes a home office and guest wing. the first floor comprises private areas consisting of an expansive master bedroom, private lounge, and further en-suite bedrooms.
