Seagrape Residence
Hillsboro Beach, Florida

Seagrape Residence occupies a slender spit of land in the South Florida Atlantic, bounded on two sides by open ocean. Nestled amongst the palms and awash in the hard-edged light of the tropics, the house opens to allow the gardens, reflective water, and ocean breezes to flow through its center. Divided into wings surrounding a central space, the south side is a guest suite, while the north wing houses a kitchen, living and dining spaces. Expansive glass walls open to create living spaces that flow seamlessly between indoor and outdoor.

Above the two lower wings, a linear bar suspends a master bedroom suite over the courtyard with ocean views to the east and west. To minimize environmental impact, each wing may be selectively conditioned, and roofs incorporate solar arrays and green spaces. Long overhangs, wood lattice screens and the lush, dense landscape create shaded, cool spaces. Exterior materials would include local Florida Keystone, oolitic limestone, and weathered Atlantic cedar. Inside the large hurricane rated glass walls, a light white oak flooring flows throughout the space.
