Coral Gables House is an exciting residential project completed by Touzet Studio, an award-winning architecture and design firm based in Miami, CA. This seaside residence is one of those incredibly cool dwellings that exhale sophistication and comfort. The owner, a committed modernist, wanted a home filled with life and brightness, bringing together and reconciling two different styles: modern and historical. “The City-side façade presents itself as two restrained stone-clad volumes – a mask clad in material very much identified with the architecture of Coral Gables.
The true nature of this house is expressed on the water side of the building – in the private realm where fantasies for a soaring roof and materials belonging to the present could be expressed.” The distinguished interior is comfortable and relaxing (just the way a home should be), with the social areas oriented towards the bay. Large floor-to-ceiling windows allow the light to pervade into the house with ease”. A small terrace, located between the house’s two massive volumes and a soothing swimming pool complete the décor.
