Recognizing the “green” value in renovation versus new construction; the client, an environmental lawyer, purchased a tired single-family house on a barrier island along the Treasure Coast of Florida. Located on the narrowest part of the island, the site affords clear views and connection to both the Atlantic Ocean in the rear yard as well as the Intracoastal waterway in the front yard.
The program called for a reduction in size and modest structural modification to a 10,000 square feet single story home built in 1991.
Utilizing the existing foundation, the original concrete shell was modified to accept new windows glazed with state of the art insulated impact glass featuring “VIEW” technology that automatically tints itself on demand throughout the day.
