Located in Alys Beach, Florida, the architect describes the house as more “like a resort in Santorini than the getaway spot that it is.” For me however, I see influences from Bermuda, to Morocco and pretty much everywhere in between and what is more, I love it.
Jeffrey Dungan was charged with creating this holiday home on an incredibly small 40 and 40 foot plot and set about creating a unique home that not only serves its owner’s needs, but also responds to the requirements of the community is sits in as well as environmental considerations that must be adhered to.
Split over three levels with a fourth story tower room, the house is finished in bright, white stucco as is custom for the Alys Beach community. The roof space too is white to aid in keeping not only the house, but also the whole community cooler. Adding to this, the construction of solid concrete throughout ensures that the house is able to survive the strongest of hurricanes.
The interiors reflect the breezy coastal location with limed natural timbers for the floor, joinery and ceiling. White upholstery, white sheer curtains relaxed accessories finish off this and individual home.
