MAF / AIA FL Award Winning Masonry Design Makes the Cover of Florida Design Magazine
The MAF Sponsored award for the 2011 AIA Florida/Caribbean Masonry Merit Award winner by HUUM Architect's Scott Hughes has made the cover of Florida Design Magazine. Ensconced in the hillside which overlooks the water, the structure is a series of expansive and intimate courtyards and cantilevered decks, which architectonically echo the diaphanous volumes of the interior, spaces which seem to defy gravity, even while embracing the solidity of Minnesota limestone and stucco facades. Views to the southwest encompass the dynamic activity of the marina in an inland waterway and track the movements of sun, wind and water. View more details here: http://www.huum.com/River-Road
