MIAMI, FL, USA, 1994
Several hundred condos on Biscayne Bay called for reconciling the competing claims of cars, density, view, and a water table that made construction below grade prohibitive. We wanted to keep as much of the ground plane as possible free as a recreational amenity for the project and to tie the development into its neighborhood by offering a green opportunity to bring people from inland to the bay shore. Each unit commands a view of the water and is cross ventilated to reduce cooling loads.
