BEACH FRONT – ORCHID II
Beach front houses on the southern coast of the United States and in the Caribbean get abused by the weather. They are often built from concrete to defend against hurricanes, driving rain and intense sunlight. As a result, the style of architecture develops some common exterior themes such as stucco walls, metal roofs, mahogany wood garages doors and an overall “blocky” feel.
In the Orchid II design, we have taken the Decoy II floor plan and completely changed the exterior. This new exterior design features an attached garage, stucco walls, metal roof, a covered entry porch with an accessible deck above and a Colonial railing pattern to keep an east coast feel. Other elements include enormous glass panels on the rear elevation to bring the outdoors in and to connect the people inside with the people outside. The size of the Orchid II is slightly smaller than the Decoy, the fireplace has been eliminated and a few of the bump-outs are altered, but fundamentally, the layout is identical to its origin plan with a decidedly different vibe.
