Gold Coast - Miami Beach House - Home Design
We designed this modern renovation for our client’s beach house in Miami, on the Gold Coast.
The original home was single storey, dated, and too small for their growing family’s needs.
The design for this modern beach house
focuses around creating a sense of ‘home’ around; the in ground pool, with entry, living and dining, and kitchen areas all facing the pool, to the north east.
The house opens to the north-east
which connects the house up to warm winter morning sun, and cooler sea breezes in summer. This helps to make the home design more sustainable and saves on energy bills – so that the owners don’t have to run their air conditioning as regularly, or for as long.
Designed to allow a relaxed lifestyle and plenty of space for a growing family, the upper level contains bedrooms accessed from family areas centred around the open stair design.
The new design includes to retain the existing pool. The significant renovation to the original dwelling added a 2nd level over, and a new 2 storey extension to help define a courtyard linking the covered outdoor entertaining, to the pool.
