Tropical modern

Casa22 stands as a remarkable “Tropical Modern” home nestled in the heart of Coconut Grove, an area rich in lush vegetation and protected landscapes. Drawing inspiration from Balinese architecture and inner-city design, this residence beautifully captures the essence of this intriguing juxtaposition.

The design embodies a distinct linear and modern aesthetic, while thoughtfully responding to the beach and sub-tropical context with equal attention. From the front, the house presents an air of privacy, facing a moderately trafficked avenue. However, at the rear, it opens up and warmly welcomes with expansive glass sliding doors that reveal a pool area adorned with palm trees, a serene beach garden, and a tranquil yoga retreat.

Spanning across two levels, the ground floor accommodates a private office within the front volume, while the social areas embrace an open-concept layout towards the rear. Positioned amidst the space, an oversized black box discreetly conceals the laundry/pantry area, harmoniously blending with the kitchen island.

A striking combination of black steel and wood steps gracefully ascends next to the black box, leading to the second level. Here, three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms await, alongside a spacious master suite featuring its own private terrace area.

The material palette boasts polished concrete, wood floors, exposed timber, and accents in dark tones. The matte black Scavolini kitchen, charcoal-framed windows, and the black and wood staircase deliberately create contrast. Though distinct, these elements have been artfully integrated to foster a sense of cohesion and harmony, complementing one another in a purposeful manner.
