Building and designing a new house usually takes a lot of commitment and know-how, both qualities these homeowners are familiar with.
Having looked at many properties and collaborated on many homes over the years, it was no surprise the couple decided to once again undergo another project, this time in the Windsor community in Vero Beach.
To design their new vacation abode, the couple commissioned architect Thomas Hoos, who created a bright and airy modern retreat with a sculptural open staircase and seamless access to a lush, private courtyard with a swimming pool.
“We wanted to create a seamless transition to the outside,” Hoos says, “so the exterior paving is very similar to the poured-concrete flooring found inside, and the ceiling plane goes straight out, interrupted only by the drapery pocket.”
Inside, interior designer Kevin Dumais used textiles and a warm palette of neutrals and bronze accents to create a cozy ambience that complements the white concrete flooring.
“We wanted a fun, bright house, and we love it,” the husband explains. “We’ll be using it for years to come.”
