The exterior architecture of the home was designed by world-renowned South African firm SAOTA and is the premiere home that SAOTA has designed in Miami. It was conceived as a self-contained, multi-layered landscape of experiences which takes advantage of both Miami’s tropical climate as well the site’s sought-after views over the canal toward the Atlantic Ocean and Miami Beach.
Pine Tree is SAOTA’s first project to be completed in Miami. SAOTA’s design DNA is derived from the South African way of living which places an emphasis on the outdoors as people live both in and through their homes. Captivated by the Miami climate and landscape potential the design embodies these principles; creating a landscape of experiences. SAOTA sought to spread the program across the site as much as possible. In direct contrast to a typical approach of a singular building element on the property, the design is porous, bringing the landscape into the interior of the house. Through the introduction of a collection of introverted and extroverted courtyards, all aspects of the program have an immediate relationship to the outdoors.
The design is as much about containment as it is about the views through it. The concept of containment is perhaps best embodied in the screens that cloak the building. Primarily born out of the functional need for privacy and solar control; their application evolved to something far more significant as CNC punched anodised aluminium becomes architectural jewelery. The screens play with the character of light, heightening the experience of enclosure and transparency. In some instances they define spaces as with the double volume nature of the entrance, in others they facilitate the bedroom terraces becoming part of the bedroom – private, protected sanctuaries.
Whilst the overall architectural design is a key focus of the SAOTA design team, this becomes secondary to the primary function of how the design will be actually be used. This drives how areas are positioned and connected; how the house lives. This approach may seem counter intuitive to most architects however, prioritizing use and function is one of the main reasons for SAOTA’s international success.”
