Multi-Generational Residence – Loquat Avenue

 

LOCATION: MIAMI

SIZE: 7000 sf

STATUS: IN PERMITTING

 

Located in Coconut Grove across three unified lots, this multigenerational project is a celebration of history and landscape. The original double lot includes a 1960’s cottage and beautiful garden defined by mature hardwoods, native palms and koi pond. The client has great sentimental value for the home and landscape as it was her mother’s creation. Her vision was to preserve the original structure to accommodate her extended family’s needs but also create a connected, accessible wing on the adjacent lot for herself and her husband. To keep as much of the landscape intact, a simple glass bridge connects the two structures and places the garden and koi pond in the center of the project. The new wing gives nod to the old cottage, with its mono-pitch roof and screened porches that overlook the courtyard. The exposed concrete facade and stainless steel screens clearly define it as a new architecture, bringing the entire project into the 21st century.
