PODESTA RESIDENCE

VERO BEACH, FLORIDA

2013

This winter residence, located on the Atlantic coast of Florida, is part of a planned residential community with specific guidelines regulating the exterior design of the buildings to be “Anglo-Caribbean” in character. Our brief was to create a bright, modernist experience for the interior and courtyard while observing the detailed architectural rules of the development. Our response was to subdue the traditional forms as much as allowable, resulting in a mannerist approach to the envelope of the house, and to create an interior with articulated views to the exterior and flush with natural light. The water of the pool and the geometry of the piazza-like courtyard become integral to the experience of the interior through the use of full-height expanses of glass against the living areas of the house.
