The client wanted a spacious, peaceful, calming home like a resort, which resulted in a design direction that intertwined the indoors and the outdoors. The extensive covered area resulted in large volumes that emphasized the permanence of the house while floating roof planes lightened it visually. Interior spaces are open and fluid with visual and physical connection to outdoor environment. The strategically placed courtyards with water elements and the use of skylights act as pockets that encourage the flow of natural air and sunlight into the habitable space. Natural materials have been used to emphasize the relationship with outdoor environment and to create an experience of a tropical resort.
