Modern Garden

Project Description

The Casey Key Residence is a place that is both architectural and natural. The geometry of the modernist house forms the overall gesture of the front courtyard garden, while on the beachside, a deck simply extends the floor plane out towards the dune. Each design element relates back to the house – the entry courtyard is formed by its acute geometry and is defined on the street side by a series of partial-height walls. A water feature sits at the convergence of its main axes and draws the sight line through the house towards the Gulf of Mexico. Less geometrically defined, the beachside garden is composed of a deck and boardwalk out over the dunes, native sabal palms and seagrapes, native groundcovers, and a line of coconut palms that continues the geometry from the courtyard through to the back.
