The approach to this grand Key West estate is through a metal-and-concrete fence and up the concrete driveway. The gardens are full of lush tropical planting.
A tiki hut, bridge and koi pond are key features in this tropical outdoor space featuring oolite and coral stone.
The exterior walls and fences have supporting elements and were considered an extension of the house. Restricting the amount of materials and plants used was not only a reflection of how the house was designed, but also helps to create more visual space and more graphic site-lines in keeping with the style of the house.
The lanai is designed to be a relaxing retreat and a place for the homeowners to get out of the hot Florida Keys sun while enjoying the view of their infinity edge swimming pool and ocean.
The designer wanted to create specific rooms for the family to enjoy throughout their garden. The tiki hut became a tropical outdoor dining area with a dining table and chairs from Janus et Cie. The client also requested two more elements: a water feature and a bridge, which features oolite and coral stone.
