PARK GROVE RESIDENCE
Location: Coconut Grove, FL, US
Status: Completed (2017)
Size: 5,309.54 S.F.
About the project: Park Grove residence is a new 5,300 sq.ft. home inspired by the Florida Modern Movement that took place throughout the State between the mid 1940’s to 1970. During that period many modern homes that were built exhibit linear, open, elegant architecture.
Coconut Grove proves to be an ideal setting for modern homes surrounded by abundant landscape. The design for this home uses cantilevered geometric shapes oriented to different views of the site. Slender columns are introduced to evoke lightness, elegance and shadows on the front façade. Through the open glass walls that make up the main living space, one can see the depth of the lush setting of the house from the street.
The house’s lay-out is ideal for entertainment, at the same time spaces were created for quiet retreat. The home also consists of three independent bedrooms with bathrooms, a generous master bedroom, family room, guest room and maid’s room, all gathered around an open and luminous living area that faces the exuberant vegetation of the backyard patio.
