Welcome to a gallery celebrating the beautiful and modern Biscayne Bay House from STRANG Architecture.
The incredible South Florida home looks out over pristine Biscayne Bay and features a 25m lap pool as the center of the home’s design.
The entire first floor is angled around the pool, while the cantilevered second floor looks out over the infinity pool as it seems to disappear into the bay.
The stucco and Florida keystone home is a jewel of architecture, glistening in the steady, bright Florida sunshine.
To protect the courtyard and other outdoor areas, the roof hangs over to create a shaded respite from both sunshine and frequent rainstorms.
Throughout the home are enormous glass panels and mirrors, allowing the home to breathe and daylight to fill the home.
The fantastic modern design of this private home has won the 2014 AIA FLORIDA Excellence In Architecture and AIA MIAMI Merit Award of Excellence awards, in addition to being published in multiple publications.
While the architecture itself is stunning, the attention to detail paid throughout the interior design is equally impressive.
Bold accent colors and warm fabrics and rugs are added to a light color pallet, along with stone textures and natural fiber accents.
We hope you’ll enjoy this tropical oasis home in sunny Florida!

A lovely, if a bit simple row of landscaping leading up to the two-story wooden front door sans mirrors. Enormous palms line the walkway, with a single small fruit tree near the steps leading up to the front door.
Upon entering the home, one wall is lined with mirrors, making the narrow hallway feel absolutely enormous, as though you were walking into an open-concept home. Looking down the hallway we can see more sliding glass doors and a hallway lined with art in subtle colors.
In the spacious living room, bold plum-colored circle chairs add color to a light color pallet. The windows that would expose the room to the street are obscured by sheer white panels, then more effectively by wattle screens behind the modern sofa.
The main floor bathroom consists of a floating stone countertop with an integrated basin and a cluster of glass orb pendant lights with red coral-like ends. A drainage basin filled with round stones sits below the sink.
Moving upstairs to the master bathroom, we see the way glass panels are used to visually separate the shower area from the rest of the bathroom, and accordion sliding panels can be retracted to expose the bathroom to an outdoor terrace overlooking the pool and the bay.
From inside the master bathroom we can see the outdoor terrace, which is surrounded by glass balustrades and shaded from view by a series of tall palms that surround the back of the property.
Back on the first floor, the hall stretches into a glass-wrapped dining area and family room. As we enter the larger room, mirrors on the right wall open up the narrow space.
Continuing into the dining room, the rich matte black table is surrounded by upholstered white dining chairs and french doors look out onto the expanse of the infinity pool and out over the bay.
Stepping outside of the dining room, we are met with the length of the incredibly blue infinity lap pool, and a strip of landscaping to the left. The home continues on the right, ending in a courtyard.
From the rear edge of the pool, we look back at the home, noting the expanse of windows and overhanging portions that shield the owners from the hot midday sun.
