Coral Gables Residence by Touzet Studio:

“The consumer for this residence is a pioneer in the technologies discipline and a committed modernist. The project is found on a waterfront website in Coral Gables, facing 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” above modern style. This obvious conflict in between our client’s fantasy of a modern house 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 extremely much recognized with the architecture of Coral Gables. The reduced volume is rough-hewn Florida Keystone and the more substantial, principal 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 accurate nature of this house is expressed on the water side of the home – in the private realm where fantasies for a soaring roof and materials belonging to the existing could be expressed.

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