Miami Beach Waterfront Home

Winner of the Barbara Baer Capitman Award from the Miami Design Preservation League in recognition of its significant contribution to preserving the city's architectural heritage. This historic house from 1929 has a remarkable plan that takes full advantage of the site. With a Moroccan flavor, one enters through an arched gate into a loggia opening onto a garden courtyard that gives the impression of a much larger house. The house is a renovation and addition that is intentionally seamless so that the old and new are in harmony with each other. The interior rooms were reorganized to be more efficient and generous. A covered porch was added facing the water on the east that has a terrace above to afford views towards the ocean.
