Grove Palace
Miami, 1999


This project for a large house in Coral Gables takes advantage of the tropical climate by the use of covered porches, a large central courtyard and all the roof terraces as an integral part of the house. The walls are stucco and the window openings are recessed in the wide exterior wall. The interior spaces on the ground floor are conceived as a series of rooms that are open to each other and the outside garden and the circulation of this house is organized around the generous and bright interior court.
