Coral Gables Residence by Touzet Studio:
“The consumer for this house is a pioneer in the technologies discipline and a committed modernist. The undertaking is located on a waterfront web site in Coral Gables, dealing with east, with views across Biscayne Bay to Downtown Miami and the barrier islands of Crucial Biscayne.
The City of Coral Gables has a prescriptive zoning code that favors historical “styles” in excess of modern layout. This apparent conflict in between our client’s fantasy of a present day property and the City’s classically-oriented design code informs the design. The “City-side” façade presents itself as 2 restrained stone-clad volumes – a “mask” clad in materials quite a lot recognized with the architecture of Coral Gables. The reduce volume is rough-hewn Florida Keystone and the greater, main volume is clad in honed Simena limestone. The mask is penetrated by only 2 openings on the western façade and a “frieze” of windows over. Even the sculptural roof is hidden from view of the street. The true nature of this house is expressed on the water side of the residence – in the private realm the place fantasies for a soaring roof and materials belonging to the current could be expressed.
The City specifications of a sloping tiled roof were re-interpreted into a series of sloping planes that are floating above glass clerestories. Glass walls hold up the sculptural roof – which offer shade and safety to the extensive outdoor terraces.”Floor Program
