For this particular home we ignored that rule and aimed for a striking design tailored for those who really appreciate architecture...I think that strategy results in a lot more care given to the project.’

[Interface] practicality with modernism and interior spaces with lushly landscaped garden and pool areas.

- Dipped in tropics.
- Illuminated by natural sun.
- Designed for function and flair.

The Shelter Residence was designed as a family home on Biscayne Bay. The two-story home features five bedrooms and six bathrooms along with the customary rooms and spaces associated with residential programming. Double-height spaces allow for natural light to penetrate deep into the home while generous overhangs seek to limit direct solar heat gain. In addition, sleek vertical fins also provide a layer of additional privacy and sun protection.

‘This is a home that allows you to feel like you are outside. The rooms are flooded with natural light and views to the landscape that envelops the home.

- Max Strang

Located on Palm Island in the middle of Biscayne Bay, the residence is geared for the subtropical lifestyle. A two-story, covered terrace is the interface between the interior spaces and the lushly landscaped garden and pool. The design invokes a vertical “fins” system, which provides an additional layer of privacy and sun protection for the home.
