Ferre House

  • The Ferre house was designed as a bachelor pied-a-terre on a small and somewhat unconventional parcel in South Beach, Florida. The house was inspired by Mediterranean courtyard houses, particularly those of North Africa. The building is composed of two volumes: one houses the living functions and the second, a void, is employed as the courtyard with a dunking  tank and a loggia. The project was designed in collaboration with Trelles Architects.
