From Studio 818:
This custom home was designed and developed from the ground-up by Studio 818. Since #BambooHouse was built directly next door to our #MidMod project we took the opportunity to showcase two unique approaches to Mid-Century Modern influenced design. From concept to move-in ready the Studio 818 Design + Build Management team handled the hundreds of moving parts necessary to bring #BambooHouse into reality.
For inspiration on the architecture and design of #BambooHouse we looked to the iconic Mid-Century Modern homes commonly found in Palm Springs, CA. With the finishes we carefully selected materials that subtly convey the coastal feel of South Florida.
The first indication of that Palm Springs Mid-Century Modern design is the purposeful use of breeze block in the homes’ front elevation. As you approach the front entry you are greeted by an open-air courtyard hidden behind the breeze block. Opposite the breeze block is a 10-foot tall wall of glass at the front of the home which provides an unobstructed view the entrance courtyard from the living areas. This front entry area is flooded with natural light while privacy is maintained with the outer breeze block wall.
