This new construction project was designed as a vacation home for a family of five who all enjoy socializing with their friends.
This large waterfront property features a 10,000 ft² “high-tech”, hurricane proof house, covered porches, horizon pool, extensive landscaping, dock-side kitchenette and bathroom, marina including floating teak dock.
The complexity of the main house “Tideway” requires full-time supervision and maintenance. Tideway Cottage was designed as modest 1,500 sf. accommodation for the on-site property managers featuring two bedrooms, one bathroom, kitchen and a large living/dining room with exposed cedar rafters and beams opening onto a covered porch overlooking the water. Above the cottage, a small 530 sf. studio apartment is available for long-term guests.
The contract to design Tideway was won by a competition among five architects who were asked by the Client to submit anonymous entries.
