The exterior of this bold and striking residence is clad in dark brick with large glass windows and doors providing an air of modernity. Once the sun sets the house disappears into the scenic backdrop with only the gorgeous lighting around it giving you any indication of its conspicuous presence. A hint of wood further elevates the unique style of this Canadian home with the high R-value glass windows letting in natural light even as they keep out the heat.
Bedrooms on the top level seem equally enticing with the prospect of taking in the magical sunrise and sunsets thanks to the glass walls that surround them. With the simple use of drapes the homeowners can switch between complete privacy and inspirational views even as they enjoy the many comforts that surround them – A perfect Miami getaway in every sense of the word!
The key: turning to a semi-buried structure. The exceptional residence designed by OYO Architects has an open plan living area on the top level that sits just above ground while the private spaces are nestled underneath.
It is the “Earth Studio” that sits next to the entrance garden on the ground level with the “Wind Studio” taking up the rear and opening up towards the backyard. On the top floor it is the “Fire Studio” that holds the social terrace and a gorgeous bedroom along with additional spaces.
Designed by Esquadra|Yi the expansive home has a breezy casual ambiance with the single-level front building holding the living areas and other service spaces. This open and elegant living space opens up towards the pool deck thanks to large sliding glass doors creating a flowing interaction between the interior and the courtyard.
