The owners of a Mediterranean style house in Florida commissioned SDH Studio to convert it into a luxurious modern retreat. Davie House is a 6700 square foot residence, taking in the spectacular surrounding views: “The clients required a house that could accommodate all of their children and grandchildren but on the other hand one that would also feel comfortable if just two of them were home. This resulted in a L-shaped plan of essentially two wings“, the architects explained.
We admit the thought of seeing genuine Mediterranean design details would have been interesting, especially in correlation with this imposing project. Instead, modern architecture took over completely, with its clean geometry throughout and lack of ornamentation. As you step inside, you are greeted by spacious interiors, flooded in natural light. Extensive use of glass in every room allows the inhabitants to interact with the positive vibes inspired by a lovely natural landscape. [Photography: Robin Hill]
