THE BUTTERFLY HOUSE
FLORIDA CASE STUDY HOME 01
THE BUTTERFLY HOUSE is one of several Florida Case Study Homes produced by the office. The intent of each one of these proposals is to produce an outcome which evaluates and speculates on the future of a Florida Lifestyle. Our environment is the defining character of our self image. The discovery of ones existential sense comes only through the intimate connections with our immediate surroundings. It is through a lack of relationship between our environment and our constructed context which brings us to adapt a weak sense of identity.
Through a globalized approach, the residential Florida realm has forged a series of fraudulent imitations, a sterile aesthetic synonymous with the combination of superficial historical styles. As a result, many architectural integrations have created a disconnected inhabitant, detached from any valuable concepts of place. Multiple contemporary homes in the state of Florida have imitated cultural fads and popular idiosyncrasy while drawing of a diluted interpretation of foreign concepts to translate a defining character. Through the understanding of historical Floridian settlements to the recognition of regional traditions, these homes can begin to speculate on an architectural language with an independent relevance and virtuous quality.
