Final Project: Artist Patio House
Designed and developed a patio house on a sloped Miami site for my client, Sarah Sze. This house was for a family of four; two adults, two children and occasional guests. Must provide areas to sleep, shower, eat, cook, entertain, make art, exhibit art, storage and a one car parking space. Site must also contain one large garden, one smaller garden, an exterior shower and a swimming pool. All of this must be designed with the artist in mind.
