We designed this new 1,050 s.f. cabana/guest house in Boca Raton to tie into the existing house. The owner requested that the addition not look like an addition when completed. The main cabana space has retractable bifold doors in the front facing the pool and corner "L" shape pocket doors that open up the corner of the building to an outdoor sitting area. A guest bedroom and bathroom is also incorporated in the overall plan. A circular stair provides access to the second floor deck for the owner to use for her bird watching.
This preliminary design for a two story 3,000 s.f. four bedroom house is situated on the ocean on the west coast of a Caribbean island. The owner requested that the house be a narrow design so all spaces could be opened to take advantage of the ocean breezes. The cross currents alleviate the use of air conditioning and the wide overhangs provide shade of the outside patio's. Natural materials of the island will be integrated into the design as well as the simplistic structural system based on the limited use of modern construction methods.
The scope of this project was to add a +/- 950 square foot addition to an existing residence. The addition includes tying into the existing house and relocating the kitchen, formal dining area and living room to the new addition area. We developed two different interior schemes for the owners to evaluate.
