Reversed Garden House, FL

This project reverses the notion of front and rear garden in response to its context. Located on a corner lot adjacent to Biscayne Boulevard and a mid-rise commercial district to the West.

Reversed Garden House

It was designed orienting the main living areas, pool and gardens towards the front yard, around a pool courtyard. The service areas were located towards the Biscayne Boulevard side and the rear yard planted with additional trees as visual and sound buffer.

Reversed Garden House

The access to this modern Miami house uses only a portion of main frontage, with a driveway for access to carports and continuing all the way back to the garages/service areas. The rest of the front yard is being integrated to the courtyard and used as private usable yard.

Reversed Garden House

Existing trees, complementary landscaping and a new perimeter wall provide privacy to this front garden.

Reversed Garden House

The courtyard is formed with overlapping L shape volumes and the project image is defined by extreme horizontal elements. The courtyard is designed with a simple landscaping, as opposed to natural; in order to be perceived more as part of the interior and amplify the integration.

Reversed Garden House

The material palette is Oolitic limestone tiles with a joint pattern to simulate large slabs, white stucco bands and aluminium screen louvers.
