Coral Gables Residence by Touzet Studio:

“The consumer for this residence is a pioneer in the technology area and a committed modernist. The task is situated on a waterfront internet site in Coral Gables, dealing with east, with views across Biscayne Bay to Downtown Miami and the barrier islands of Essential Biscayne.

The City of Coral Gables has a prescriptive zoning code that favors historical “styles” in excess of contemporary layout. This obvious conflict among our client’s fantasy of a contemporary residence and the City’s classically-oriented layout code informs the design. The “City-side” façade presents itself as 2 restrained stone-clad volumes – a “mask” clad in materials extremely considerably identified with the architecture of Coral Gables. The lower volume is rough-hewn Florida Keystone and the greater, primary volume is clad in honed Simena limestone. The mask is penetrated by only 2 openings on the western façade and a “frieze” of windows above. Even the sculptural roof is hidden from see of the street. The correct nature of this property is expressed on the water side of the home – in the personal realm the place fantasies for a soaring roof and materials belonging to the existing could be expressed.

The City demands of a sloping tiled roof were re-interpreted into a series of sloping planes that are floating over glass clerestories. Glass walls hold up the sculptural roof – which provide shade and protection to the comprehensive outside terraces.”
