The client wanted to create a forever home that embodied the spirit of the property, which is a gorgeous natural peninsula. The architect designed a simplistic rectilinear floorplan that masterfully maximizes space and views. Much of the intent is to picture frame the views with his architecture to create depth and interest. One of the most difficult aspects was to incorporate an RV garage without diminishing the curb appeal while appeasing the HOA. All of this was carefully done while maintaining a strict budget.
Nautilus worked with a nationally renowned architect, Maurice Jennings architecture who provided interior architecture including fully designed cabinetry, trim moldings, custom light fixtures and furniture. Shifting Shores features floor-to-ceiling window systems featuring cathedral style windows providing 180-degree views of the intercostal waterway.
The project design grew out of the natural grades of the land and used locally sourced natural materials throughout, drawing from the designs of E-fay Jones and Frank Lloyd Wright. The home was honored to receive the Grand Aurora for Best Kitchen in the $1-$2 million category.
