This single-family residential home welcomes a landscape design demonstrating how garden elements can meld the built environment seamlessly with the natural. The home was designed by world-renowned Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan, who incorporated raw materials such as exposed concrete, stone, and wood to complement the natural site. The family compound has a continuous design language, from the site-specific use of materials, to the indigenous plantings and specimen trees. In addition to a traditional swimming pool, the garden envelopes a bio-filtered natural swimming pool that includes Red Mangrove and native wetland plants. A curvilinear walkway creates a bridge over the natural pool offering a unique perspective to the garden below, and access to the second floor roof terrace. From this vantage point, one can obtain views of the vegetated green roof of the main level, and overlook Indian Creek and the Miami Beach skyline.
