Palma Sola Residence

Type: Single Family Residence
Location: Anna Maria Island, FL
Year Completed: 2009

It was an honor to collaborate with architect Jonathan Parks in designing thisĀ Palma Sola residence, where outdoor living is paramount to the client. The design concept for this project was to interweave the swimming pool and the two new structures designed by Parks to the existing residence through the use of landscape elements to create an emotion that embodies outdoor living. Each of these three structures uniquely relates to the water element within the framework of their individual gardens. Turfblock and grass were used on the ground plane in three different ways to further delineate and simultaneously unify these spaces. Each of the three gardens boasts a unique color palette. A grid of Vetchii Palms creates an outdoor ceiling. The result of these and other elements is a playful juxtaposition between indoor and outdoor space. Drought tolerant, salt tolerant, and native or proven materials were used in this landscape, as well as low volume and Waterwise irrigation practices, ensuring sustainability.
