Welcome to today’s gallery, featuring photographs of the Royal Palm residence, a modern home created by NC-office.
This white, angular, thoroughly modern structure was built in a narrow, linear site, necessitating fresh ideas about crafting a unique space.
The resulting development includes a multi-layered, thick facade composed of terraces, balconies, and patios surrounding a rectangular base construction. The outermost pieces fit over outdoor relaxation spaces, creating hybrid rooms offering fresh air, sunshine, and protection from the elements and public views.
Backyard patio incorporates a lengthy lido pool and garden, with little spare room. Indoor areas provide a host of outdoor exposure via sliding glass doors and open flow through to innermost rooms. This novel configuration provides a balance of natural lighting throughout.
Front entryway prominently discloses its multi-layered approach, with soaring roof extension over outer wall, concealing actual front door deep in the structure.
Lido pool runs the length of the rear facade, with white patio surrounding and tropical garden bordering outer edge.
Pool is wrapped in marble tiling, forming exterior wall and attached jacuzzi border.
View down length of pool highlights the contrast between pristine marble and white house with surrounding thick palm garden.
This raised view of the pool and patio highlights the extensive marble tiling and covered seating area below second floor balcony.
Front entryway includes this private patio space beneath natural wood exposed beams. Structure provides shade and outdoor, street side seating not usually available in residential homes.
Kitchen features thoroughly modern appointments, including glossy white cabinetry and countertops, micro-tile blue backsplash, and two-part island featuring cabinetry, built-in sink, and lower dining space with natural wood structure.
View down the central hall reveals extensive use of marble flooring and natural wood paneling. Sculpted detail extends from wall, near built-in hallway table on left.

Office features more of the rich wood paneling, extending into wall structure, cabinetry, and this large wraparound desk with extensive bookshelves overhead.
Bathroom features dark marble countertop over dark wood cabinetry, with light tile backsplash holding metallic framed mirror.
Here we have a closer view of the front facade, revealing the layers folding around the entryway. High roof provides subtle shelter to enclosed patio space.
