Intracoastal Waterway
The client purchased this particular lot for its potential dramatic views of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. The lot was pie-shaped with a significant slope from front to back, so the challenge was to design a home maximizing the views and solar orientation in a design reminiscent of 19th century New England coastal cottages. The living areas were oriented toward the waterway and located on the upper most floors, with guest and recreation areas in the middle and the garage and shop area recessed within the hill. A swimming pool was incorporated on the middle terrace level out from the recreation room.
