Florida/Carribean Architect - Fall 2014 - (Page 22)

Design A w A r d s Honor AwArd for tHE tEst of tiME 2424 Building, Coconut Grove, Florida Mateu Architecture, Inc., Miami, Florida This is a clean modern design that, while rooted in a specific style, has a timeless sense of proportion. This three-story office building, sited on busy U.S. Hwy 1, has an audience of 100,000 commuters every day all moving past the building at 55 miles per hour. On its opposite side, a quiet residential street faces the building. These two opposing contexts, along with the difficulties inherent in a wedgeshaped lot, acted as the main sources of creative tension when the building was constructed in 1984. In 1985, it was recognized by AIA Florida with an Award of Excellence in Architecture for new work. PHOTOGRAPHy By KATE ZARI (1984 IMAGE) AND RAMON ARBESu (2014 IMAGE) Design A w A r d s MErit AwArd for tHE tEst of tiME Villa Cedro, Florida Carl Abbott, FAIA, Architect/Planner, PA, Sarasota, Florida This 30-year old house looks like it could have been built five years ago. The architecture is fresh and it integrates seamlessly into the landscape. It's almost as though the quality of the architecture has improved over the years as the landscape has matured. 22 PHOTOGRAPHy By STEVEN BROOKE Built in 1984, this large house blends into the landscape and becomes one with the site. The house is Y-shaped in plan, creating linear wings with the angle where solid walls meet to form the entry. From the entry, the public areas are wide open to the landscape. www.aiafla.org http://www.aiafla.org
