Anna Maria Residence to Break Ground
The 3,500 square foot proposed residence is closely bounded by the four setback lines and is elevated a full story to meet a high flood elevation. The intent of the design is to reconnect the elevated house with the yard below. From the raised living space, the house first descends three steps to an elevated pool to again step down another half flight of stairs to a wood deck three feet above grade. The wood deck in turn steps down with stadium seating to the yard and the entry gate. This allows the house to expand to shaded exterior spaces visually connected to the interior.
