Strang Layout creates Brazil-impressed Miami property engulfed in greenery
A deft hand when it comes to mixing modernist architecture and Florida’s tropical climate, Miami architecture studio Strang Design has just done a Brazil-inspired property that bears all the hallmarks of its author’s type of ‘environmental modernism’. Termed on by a few from Brazil who wished to fee a new Miami home, Max Strang and his team blended a prosperity of Brazilian influences in a house that both equally feels at ease in its location but also evokes illustrations or photos of the owners’ South American home nation by way of materials, composition, art and furniture.
‘We achieved [the client] by means of word-of-mouth. Our company has been energetic in Miami for about 20 years and we have done many other properties in this neighbourhood. It was a wonderful collaboration with the customers and they unquestionably introduced an open thoughts and a great deal of type and sophistication to the venture,’ Strang recollects. ‘Miami has established alone as the stylistic and business funds of Latin America. When you get that perception and merge it with South Florida’s subtropical climate… It was really easy to include Brazilian influences into the style and design of this residence.’
Landscape architecture studio La Casona Backyard served produce the lush outdoor concept that engulfs the household in tropical greenery, guarding it from prying eyes when creating the sensation of serenity and seclusion when inside. Strang worked with these and the broader environment to mould his architectural method.
‘The home is situated in a densely landscaped suburban place just a handful of miles from the coronary heart of downtown Miami,’ states Strang. ‘This neighbourhood is regarded for generous estate-sized homes and a experienced tree cover. At the onset of this venture, we strived to combine the existing oak trees into the over-all design and style. The house by itself is organised into an “H-shape” which will allow all areas to be flooded with normal light and views of the purely natural environment. Furthermore, the home adopts a series of planted roofs and the next ground was built with vertical trellises to encourage climbing vines. These capabilities further more blur the boundaries in between dwelling and landscape.’ §
