Located in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Miami, Bay Harbor Islands, the Gross-Flazs House is a single-family residence situated on a waterfront site of approximately 19,688 square feet, with far reaching views extending to Biscayne Bay.
The existing home has been demolished to make way for a 5,890 square foot modern house which due to careful positioning on the site takes advantage of expansive glazed views on the exceptional surroundings.

From the architect. "This project is an exploration of the modernist pavilion in an extreme maritime context. The site is a north-facing Biscayne Bay with distant views of the City Skyline to the west and the street to the south. The organization of the architectural program is used to create a passive solar response to the constraints of a challenging site and construction budget. The single level residence was designed in a minimalistic way, emphasizing long views and perspectives. The house combines simple cubic volumes, chained together in plan and section."
