Modern Architecture by Touzet Studio for a Residence in Florida.
The architects of Touzet Studio have completed this top notch residence located on a waterfront site in Coral Gables. The residence faces to the east with great views across Biscayne Bay to Downtown Miami and the barrier islands of Key Biscayne. The architects of Touzet Studio had to deal with a difficult task. Their client asked for a modern home, which is in contrast to the City of Coral Gables’ mainly historical style. That’s why the city-side of the house was designed as two restrained stone-clad volumes. The chosen material for the residence is often used in the architecture of Coral Gables’ buildings.
The entire facade was kept as simple as possible. Only two openings on the western facade and some windows above open the facade. The water side of the house is very open with large windows and glass walls. A sculptural roof provides shade to the terraces.
