Nestled in the woodlands of Myakka, this modern sculptural design establishes a harmonious coexistence between architecture and nature. The journey commenced with a vision from our client—a desire to transform this magical woodland site into a gem of a home for a new beginning.

The floor plan unfolds as a series of angled spaces, revealing carefully orchestrated volumes combined into an open main living area. This design choice allows for panoramic views of the lush surroundings, creating an immersive experience where the beauty of the natural environment seamlessly integrates with the architectural elements.

Expansive glazed openings frame the outdoor views allowing the inhabitants to have a constant connection to the land. The owner’s interior design selections create a bright, inviting space that fosters a sense of openness for the entire family.

Clerestory windows allow natural light to flow freely, while expansive outdoor living areas, thoughtfully screened, seamlessly expand the indoor-outdoor living experience. The open kitchen and a stunning custom live-edge Monkey pod dining table embrace natural elements that effortlessly bring the outdoors in.

The vaulted spaces add grandeur while accommodating the display of a large-scale art collection, reflecting the owner’s passion. The private programmatic spaces branch off the main living volume and lead to guest bedrooms, the office, and a primary suite with expansive views of the meadow.

This modern woodland home is a living testament to the fusion of contemporary architecture with the tranquility of nature, creating a haven for an owner who appreciates the beauty of their surroundings.
