An Architect’s Own Tropical Refuge by Brillhart Architecture

The person in charge of the Brillhart Architecture practice designed a home for him and his family in Miami, Florida following the glass pavilion typology as well as the Florida Modernism aesthetic choices for an open and comfortable refuge.

Spreading over a surface of 1500 square feet, the house has uninterrupted glass surfaces with four sets of sliding glass doors both at the front and at the rear to permit a complete integration with the outdoors when the owners want it, while louvers protect it from excessive natural light and curious views.

The house stands at a height of five inches above the ground level and aside from the interior the project has 800 square feet of outdoor living space with porches in the front and back to enjoy the lush vegetation. The main construction material was steel with glass and the wooden finishes allowed a better integration into the landscape.
