The commission was to develop a house under the standards of the real estate business, a basic and optimized program complemented by a strategy of exterior terraces and main rooms open to the panoramic view.

In response to a sunken site with a gentle slope, with glimpses of ocean views, the program aims to raise the programmatic piano nobile of the house, from the perpendicular overlap of 2 volumes of simple lines that make up a new dimension. The first, in elevation, in the direction of the views of the bay, which makes up the access and contains the public spaces.

The commission was to develop a house under the standards of the real estate business, a basic and optimized program complemented to a strategy of exterior terraces and main rooms open to panoramic views.

Considering the terraced, square site with an average slope, with “moments” with an ocean view, we decided to set back the house to the back of the site, constituting a broad and long facade, taking the highest point of the site and a more panoramic view of the environment.

A bowl that morphs into a dome that morphs back into a bowl… The bowl is a theater — the dome a café, restaurant – the warping of dome into bowl & vice versa makes a playground. Light glows up fromthe bleachers & down from the dome; water pours down the shell of the dome.

Coral Gables Residence in Miami, Florida by Touzet Studio

 
January 3rd, 2014 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Touzet Studio

The “City-side” façade presents itself as two restrained stone-clad volumes – a “mask” clad in material very much identified with the architecture of Coral Gables. The lower volume is rough-hewn Florida Keystone and the larger, main volume is clad in honed limestone. The mask is penetrated by only two openings on the western façade and a “frieze” of windows above. Very little of the house is visible from the street – even the thrust of the sculptural roof is hidden from view.
