Open up the space . . .   

Gardenia House (unbuilt) 2020

A little machining practice:  A second build of the Split Personality Pool Table in Collaboration with Lee Benson of Hurricane Billiards.  The Mods by Lee for this build include changing all of the steel parts to alumninum plate in a slightly thicker plate, and the tops will be Lee's design this time around.  Check out HurricaneBilliards.com for more.

6330 Project:  WIP.  The contrast of systems gives one a sense of permanence while opening the space to the outside.  The Glass-Line provides the thermal envelope when wanted or needed while the Screen-Line provides protection against the Florida insects while allowing the space to be opened and expanded.

6330 Project:  WIP.    Florida Architecture uses natural materials, concrete, rough-sawn-cypress, natural.  The materials are designed to allow the structure and the space to breathe.  Allow the natural outdoor air too keep the indoor environment safe and clean.  Also, bare concrete and wood on an interior provide humidity stabilization by absorbing and releasing humidity as the outdoor humidity fluctuates.

6330 Project WIP.  The  south half of the floating roof plane extends past the east wall with its screen vent and tapered lower edge which is flush with operable clerestory panels to allow hot air which rises to the ceiling, to roll up and out the openings with the slightest breeze.
