Winner of the "On the Books" Category of the SEBC 2016 Aurora Awards. The owners’ design objectives for this 3,000 square foot custom home were to enjoy the waterfront views and Florida’s stunning sunrises and sunsets from their property. They were attracted to both the look and living environment of Contemporary style architecture. In keeping with their objectives during the planning stages, DSA positioned the home on an east-west axis and designed contemporary elevations and interior living spaces with special features such as a porte-cochère with a spacious deck built on top, from which to view sunsets on the west side of the residence, and large balconies and a pool facing the Intracoastal Waterway, from which to enjoy morning sunrises. Inside, three bedrooms and ample living spaces, were designed around a central two story tall open concept living area. The first floor stairs lead to a catwalk on the second floor designed to look down to the first floor below as you walk across, creating an even more airy, contemporary feel throughout the home. The master bathroom juts out, suspended off the back of the house, with dual vanity sinks positioned in front of a large waterfront window-wall rather than mirrors. Even the make-up counter in the master bathroom was designed so that when seated and looking into the mirror you can see the views of the water through the windows in its reflection. The design inspired other homeowners who asked DSA to include similar concepts in their plans.
