Miami Beach Residence
An empty lot provided the homeowners with an extremely rare opportunity for a new-construction home in a highly developed and established Miami Beach neighborhood. The goal was to create a 4,000 SF, 5-bedroom, 5 ½-bathroom Mediterranean-style residence in keeping with the historic neighborhood while maximizing green building techniques and the use of environmentally conscious materials. The first floor is a continuous flow of warm, inviting, and open living spaces that transition seamlessly to the lush rear yard with custom pool and hot tub. Special attention was given to details throughout the residence to minimize the home’s carbon footprint such as energy-efficient windows, lighting, fixtures, and appliances. Albert Architecture coordinated with local landscape architects to design exterior green spaces with indigenous, water-efficient landscaping, while creating a luxurious and serene retreat. The house was awarded LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for Homes Silver Certification.
