Uncommon Contemporary Residence Surrounded by Oak Trees in Florida

Casa Grove was designed by MATEU Architecture and is a great example of modern architecture that takes advantage of its natural environment. Here is a short description from the architects: Casa Grove I is located on a lush tree filled lot that fronts on a heavily traveled avenue in the north part of Coconut Grove, Florida.  The lot is forty feet wide by one hundred seventy feet deep and containing several huge oaks that were preserved.  The courtyard design allows for the main public spaces to be buffered from the traffic and street noise by a front structure that contains the carport and bedroom/studio above.  The entry sequence is such that the side setback is used as a filter to the house, deliberately extending the arrival sequence, making a small lot appear larger. We find the interior design of this residence quite elegant and appealing. It is truly inspiring to see how subtle wood elements contribute to the overall modern style of this home, awarding it with a noble touch.
