Barrier Island House in Vero Beach, Florida by Sanders Pace Architecture

Saturday, November 10th, 2012

Article source: Sanders Pace Architecture

This project is located within a waterfront neighborhood of modest 1950’s era houses alongside many more recent supersized replacements. Our process began by evaluating the client’s goals with their existing property in order to determine whether or not the existing single family residence on the site could accommodate their needs. After an early visit to the site it was determined that any improvement to the existing residence would require the demolition of the original terrazzo slab on grade, perhaps the property’s best asset.
