A sleek white home for a serious art collector, the Stein Residence is a light-filled gallery set amidst the lush landscape of Coconut Grove. The calm and minimalist living room provides an appropriate atmosphere for the owner’s collection of architectural photography, video installations and other cutting edge art pieces.
Architects designed this modern home so that the entire structure has either access to or a view of the patio and swimming pool, creating a unique, inclusive design. On the first floor, large glass doors and tons of windows allow direct access to the back patio and backyard, while the second floor bedrooms are given a clear view of the spaces at the rear of the home.
Just off the sunroom, the modern dining room has comfortable seating for six. With an open concept floor plan and the back wall being made of glass, this space gets plenty of natural light, keeping it warm and bright.
From the master bedroom on the second floor of this elegant, modern home, a private balcony overlooks the pool. Here, the homeowners can sit out and relax while their children and their friends play below. This patio also gives them the option of extending their entertaining space to the second level of their home.
To create a clear separation between the public and private space of the house, architects use materials that would delineate the two spaces. The first story-the public spaces of the home-is filled with windows that allow in natural light and create a transparency from one side of the house to the other. However, on the second floor, where the bedrooms are, architects used stucco to create a more private feel for those spaces.
