Team Lynd and Starwood Capital Group are the names behind this modern behemoth where sophistication style the inimitable charm of Miami and carefully curated interiors come together in a splendid and spectacular fashion.
A cool and ingenious ‘glass joint’ connects the old timber structure with the new extension and both buildings seem to retain their individual style and aura even while interacting with one another in a seamless manner.
As is the norm in most contemporary homes it is the ground level that holds the open living area kitchen dining room and the home office while the basement contains the wine room bedroom and other utility areas. The master bedroom and bathroom along with three additional bedrooms sit on the top level and enjoy lovely views of the garden and the landscape beyond.
Designed by Oleg Drozdov the house is broadly divided into three individual units with each one having its own series of balconies and private terraces that melt into the common social zone at the heart of it all. The central living zone flows into the semi-open terrace and pool area that overlooks the generous garden outside. This ingeniously crafted terrace allows the homeowners to enjoy ‘outdoor living’ throughout the year and allows the adults in the house to keep an eye on the kids as they spend time in the garden.
The unique design of the house organization of various rooms and the natural 3-meter slope of the lot on which it sits ensures that the entrance utility rooms ad garage are placed on a level that is inherently lower that the living quarters bedrooms and the beautiful terrace.
