This project involved the renovation and restructuring of a single-story, 1951 home for a realtor and single mother in beautiful Surfside. Our client was referred to us by their next-door neighbor, a client-collaborator whose home we had redesigned together prior. The south-facing property needed plenty of remodeling, so our architectural team was hired to breathe new life into the future home for the client and her children. Carefully planned with input from the client and her 85-year-old mother, our shared taste for Mimo architectural design became the stylistic tone for the project. The scope of our design work involved both the interior and exterior of the home and included the connection of the separate adjacent garage structure to the main residence.
The roof was repaired and refinished, along with the driveway on the front of the property, the exterior facades, and paved walkways. Also replaced throughout the home were the ceilings, floors, lighting fixtures, and bathroom fixtures. All of the interiors of the house were refinished, including the modernized kitchen, which was relocated. Further, the home's apertures were replaced with hurricane rated, impact-resistant doors and windows, and mechanical and electrical systems were updated to current standards.
In the back of the home, design choices were made with entertaining and family time in mind. The brand new pool complemented the neat decking, and a covered terrace was constructed to provide comfortable shade on sunny days. some of which was provided shade with a covered terrace. Also, an outdoor cooking area was built to include an outdoor sink and grill. Tropical landscaping and updated fencing around the perimeter of the home and property added both privacy and Mimo style to the site.
