Casa Caracol is a three-story, single-family residence, intended as a
vacation home. Its style is Southern vernacular, with timber
construction, large, spacious porches and color palette. The design
focuses on having several large, communal spaces on every level
where the family can spend time together. Aside from the common
areas, Casa Caracol also includes an entrance foyer, living room, dining
room, kitchen, two bedrooms, a library and a master suite.
A double porch adorns the West elevation, and balconies are located
on both eastern and western sides at every level, maximizing the
amount of sunlight and fresh, ocean air entering the house. The tower
on the fourth level serves to hold and mark the corner of the street
edge, and is intended as a space for entertainment, leading out onto a
rooftop terrace, and perfect for watching the sunset.
New Millennium is a three story, single-family residence that may be
used year-round or as a vacation home and will be a place of “general
righteousness and happiness” for the family residing there. The name was
chosen to reflect both the personality and color of the home. The sky blue home
has a spacious front porch, which opens into the main family living space and
stair to the upper floors. The first floor also features a bar, half-bath, and
joined kitchen and dining room, which opens onto a back deck area. This outdoor
deck is partially enclosed which allows the family to enjoy the space despite
inclement weather. The second floor has 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Both
bedrooms, one of which is the master bedroom, have access to separate balconies.
The third floor has 3 additional bedrooms and a stair to the tower element. At
the top of the home the residents may ascend into the tower that overlooks
Seaside. With an extended balcony behind the tower itself, a full 360-degree
view of the surrounding area is achieved.
