CAPTIVA GUEST HOUSE, captiva island, florida ARCHITECTUREJOYCEOWENS LLC, ft. myers, florida "After Hurricane Charlie damaged this island structure, a complete renovation produced a tropical building with a modern feel. The colors and textures reflect the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, part of the source of its original destruction." Joyce Owens, AIA A small guest cottage built in the 1970s and an adjacent garage dating from the 1940s were in need of a complete renovation following severe storm damage. The project offered an interesting opportunity to create a thoroughly modern building inside and out. The original studio cottage was a special, albeit small, building. Through the debris left by the storm, it was apparent that the deftly detailed exposed stacked concrete block and high ceilings would give great character to the new structure. Adjacent to the guest cottage was an old garage that was seriously deteriorated. It was proposed that the house and garage be linked by an air-conditioned space that could serve as a secondary entry and a much-needed laundry area. The problem, South elevation. There are two entrances on the south side of the house. One is set into the space, now enclosed, that originally separated the house from the garage, top, and a second leads directly into the house, above.
