The young female client, who comes from a family of art collectors and design lovers, wanted to pay homage to the famous Eichler mid century modern designs, with a simpler yet more contemporary twist.

Completed in 2016, the 3 bedroom and 2 bath, 1 story residence is located on a compact site with an existing pool that we resurfaced and integrated into the new landscape design. Like in the Eichler homes, the seemingly unconstrained transition between outside and inside is an important design aspect (Biophilic design). The exterior entry planter extends through the inside, bringing the outside in, leading the visitor to the big glass sliders that open to the covered exterior deck and pool.

The exterior materials, a mainly painted stucco with a wood siding accent and a big roof fascia. The interiors are simple with polished concrete flooring throughout and high ceilings with exposed structural beams in the main living area.

In 2017, Hlevel received a Design Award from the AIA SWFL Chapter for Built-Design for this project.
