Nest Architects and Placement present the leafy Florida House, designed and documented by Nest and then guided through the construction stage by Stephanie Kitingan’s new firm.

Our clients wanted a home to grow old in, where their children would return for weekends and holidays for years to come. A home with a feeling of lightness and stillness, with views to the garden from every room.

Taking inspiration from iconic mid-century homes, the Florida House separates 2 accommodation blocks with a central courtyard. The separate blocks are then unified with a seemingly floating roof. Dramatic vertical planes create outdoor area with subtly different atmospheres. They also allow the  rooms inside have their own identities.

Florida House also features deep set brick windowsills and nooks, creating versatile surfaces for storing or displaying the clients many objects and collectibles, including our Polar Desk Lamp. A built-in dining banquette is recessed within an alcove creating an intimate dining setting that maintains a connection with the living and landscape beyond.

The materials are robust and bold, but never brash. The timber internal linings add warmth to the spaces whilst the white bricks create a backdrop for the garden to shine.

This project was recently featured on the Design Anthology website.
