KZ Architecture: Boano-Lowenstein Residence

Located in Bay Harbor Island, Florida, this is luxury house was designed by KZ Architecture, the house has two balcony on front of house. Front area of house is divided into two parts, open pool and grass garden, walk way to the main door divides this two part.

The design team set goals that would be respectful of the context and the landscape, as well as conscious of resources and sustainability. Despite the quasi-urban setting, this effort resulted in a reduced footprint in the highly priced site and the adoption of the LEED for homes scale to ensure a sustainable path. The outside permeates the interior and the home is enveloped with natural light and views. Spacious and distinct exterior living spaces such as porches and balconies flow from within and reach out onto the landscape, providing environmentally sensitive solutions for a home in a tropical climate. Deeply rooted in its context, this project represents a milestone for residential sustainable design in South Florida, as the first home of its type to achieve silver LEED certification and Florida Green Building Coalition Gold Certification.
