Beach Front Lookout
Over the years, forces of nature have caused wear and tear on beach front properties which has resulted in Landscape Architectures to consider the proximity to water in their design.
Our client wanted to restore and reinforce (post hurricane) this magnificent home with a first class view, which inspired us to create a ship on the water feel. Mimicking the bow of a ship, the pool and patio terraces were programmed up close as an extension of the existing house plinth.
Elaborate entertainment, dining and kitchen spaces were integrated into the “bow.” Drainage, sea surge protection, storage capacity under the patio structure, double layer of concrete sea walls and a sunken lawn area behind the sea walls were built for reinforcement.
