A retrospective look at the Rock House
[Transcend] architectural trajectory by merging the ingenuity, competence, and dexterity—into a primary residence for the Max Strang family.
• Iconized through repetitive structural environments.
• Contextualized by dense and riotous tropical landscape.
• Catapulted into fame via movie clips and international publications.
We’ve transcended the veil of possibility by pushing the limits of steel and stone. The stage is set by the monumental stone base and structurally expressive roof. Surroundings are embellished courtesy of Mother Nature—waterfalls, touchable tree canopies, and dense tropical landscape to name a few. The RockHouse masterfully blends disparate influences to create an unexpected, yet convincing, design solution.
The Rock House masterfully blends disparate influences together to create an unexpected, yet convincing, design solution. The dense and riotous tropical landscape of Coconut Grove affords the home its proper context.
