THE MIRRORED COURTYARDS

DESIGN LEADER: ALEX PENNA

LOCATION: FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA

PROJECT AREA: 8,200 SF

NUMBER OF STORIES: 2 HOUSES, 3 STORIES 

MARKET: RESIDENTIAL

The RNA Mirrored Courtyard Houses concept not only invites the outdoors to the interior, a concept that modernist architects have been exploring since the 1920s, but also allows the exterior architectural design to be contemplated from within. "This concept may be explored in locations where there is limited visual appeal of the surrounding environment. From the developer's perspective, the mirrored courtyard house design concept creates its own market value and comparable by establishing a new reference of attractiveness and dynamics of residential real estate development”, said Alex Penna, RNA Lead Contemporary Designer and Business Partner.

Rex Nichols, Principal of the firm, acknowledges the remarkable privacy and instant simplicity achieved from light structural forms at the central section of the house. The wings and walls of glass are anchored by gleaming polished floors throughout. The extensive outdoor entertaining areas flow seamlessly with the main rooms of the houses. Artistically subtle Vibia Lighting fixtures, used in the clerestory section of the central part of the houses, create a stunning first impression and elegant rationalism that is purely theatrical and playful. The master bedroom takes center stage as the ideal sanctuary with its breath-taking panoramic ocean views. The sumptuous setting of the third floor VIP room embraces filtered views of nature and ocean, the ultimate canvas of drama and design. RNA achieved the homeowner's mission by designing an architecturally significant home and a haven for their ultimate enjoyment; indeed, two of a kind that creates a vibrant lifestyle.
