Situated on San Marino island off the Venetian Causeway in Miami Beach, the façade reflects shifting horizontal and vertical planes using natural materials and indigenous stone walls. The home gets its roots from mid Century modern architecture that has been redefined to a Miami tropical modern structure. From the rear the long horizontal planes of roofline and terrace are sliced vertically by a stone wall. Each main area has walls of ten foot high glass doors that pocket to provide a vast openness from the back yard through the main living area to the courtyard. The interior and exterior flows seamlessly into one unified space. The house is engulfed by tropical breezes from Biscayne Bay and maximizes the panoramic views. With nearly 9,000 square feet under air that includes a media room, outdoor shade structure and private two story bungalow, this modern courtyard home is the ultimate in luxury and entertainment. From the master bedroom the entire corner opens to an expansive private terrace with a view of the downtown Miami skyline.
