Welcome to our gallery featuring the Peribere project, a fantastical home designed by [STRANG] Architecture.
This sleekly modern home was completed in 2013 in Miami, Florida. It’s a bright, open-design contemporary creation showcasing a dramatic integration of outdoor and indoor spaces.
An intriguing private entrance to the home releases into a light-filled and transparent arrangement of living spaces. The full height glazing on the waterfront side of the home provides expansive views of Biscayne Bay. Ample sunlight is welcomed and tempered, as the south-facing residence employs various sun-shading strategies such as dynamic cantilevers and louvered walls to adapt the home to its subtropical setting.
The home is raised above the existing grade to better accommodate the occasional hurricane “storm surge” and also to confront longer-term sea level challenges. A raised internal courtyard, however, provides the appearance and convenience of a garden lifestyle.
The sleek, minimalist style applied to the structure heightens its stark modernity, while natural wood flooring throughout offers a connection to traditional construction. Integrating closely with its environment allows the sharply defined home to both stand out and appear wholly at place in the landscape.
Across the expansive patio and pool, we see the interior of the home through full height glazing. Illuminated by a galaxy of recessed lighting, the interior spills outward visually through retractible sliding panels.
The balcony, awash in rich timber and defined by a frameless glass wall, offers spectacular views across the bay. Rooftop lawn extension adds some natural presence to the modern structure.
The contemporary concrete construction frames elaborate arrays of full height glass, seen here in the private entrance of the home. The bedroom segment of the home is visible across the central courtyard.
The grand, open-plan living room features a set of light grey contemporary sectionals over an expanse of dark stone flooring, contrasting with bright white surroundings. The upper floor can be seen peeking over at top left.
This cozy media room sets a series of modern floor chairs on rich hardwood flooring, with black wall and ceiling contrasting with bright surroundings.
The kitchen is awash in sleekly modern cabinetry and glossy paneling. The large island features a dining table extension in natural wood, with plentiful space for seating six.
In the open-plan design, the dining room shares space with the kitchen. Above the expansive table we see some of the striking sculptural lighting solutions.
The large, shared open space includes this elegant living room area next to the lengthy dining table. Sectionals and a sleek black coffee table center on a colorful area rug, providing contrast with the neutral white and grey surroundings.
Staircases within the home are open-design mixtures of metal and timber, flanked by glass panels for ultimate visibility. Subtle natural wood shelving is built into the wall here.
This cozy space features abundant built-in storage surrounding a contemporary brown chaise lounge. A unique photograph-dotted chandelier hangs above.
The master bedroom en suite is a completely open affair, with pedestal tub standing in the space between sleeping quarters and dual vanity. Sliding glass panels allow for private balcony access.
This secondary bedroom in pristine white over hardwood flooring features a discreet and modern storage solution on far wall.
The upper floor features useful spaces, aside the bedrooms, like this hallway-set office area. Large paintings adorn the walls, spiking the neutral interior with color and passion.
Low slung glass walls wrap the upper floor, allowing for views down into the foyer here.
The mostly unadorned chandelier here is seen with more of the white ribbon-wrapping that is prominently displayed on lighting solutions throughout the home.
This bathroom houses a sleek floating vanity with oversized vessel sink. Wall-mounted faucet and frameless mirror compliment the glass-enclosed shower for a modern look.
This bedroom, featuring a private loft area, enjoys a surfeit of open space over its natural hardwood flooring.
Viewed from a connective water feature, the private courtyard is an oasis within this estate, bracketed by the home and by thick greenery.
The front of the home is monolithic white, saving most of the open expanse of glass for the water-facing side.
Viewed from the central courtyard, we can see right through the home toward the bay, courtesy of extensive glasswork and clear, open-plan design.
