Large Contemporary House in South Florida

Ballantrae Court in South Florida

The design of Ballantrae Court involved a large program that would yield a massive home on a limited and restricted site.

The design strategy involved deconstructing the volume into pavilions that could generate a dialogue between built form and landscape and create intimate connections between the golf course and the living spaces.

This Residence was developed as a seasonal home in a golf community in South Florida. The program specified ample guest accommodations for the clients’ extended family and friends.

The aesthetic of the project developed in response to the client’s wish for a modern house, and the community’s requirements for sloped roofs.

The zoning manual stipulated for a minimum 6/12 roof slope. However, the design team was successful in obtaining a variance to adjust the slope to a 3/12 ratio for portions of the roof.

The house consists of a main volume, capped with a gable roof at the required slope and four shed roof legs at the lesser slope that define the house and frame the outdoor spaces in the front and the rear of the property.

In the front, these elements materialize as an inviting entry porch on one side, and help transform what would be an otherwise massive three car garage on the other.

In the rear, the volumes thrust into the golf course, emphasizing the desired interaction between the landscape and the architecture. The home strives to embrace Florida living and be respectful of its context.

The choice of materials which include zinc for the roof and “C” structures, natural coral keystone for walls and wood for ceilings and decks, reflect the vernacular building traditions of the area.

The planes and volumes clad in these three materials, weave in and out of the structure defining the architecture throughout.
