HIBISCUS ISLAND ADDITIONS AND REMODELING

The original house which dates from the 1940's had been remodeled several times by prior owners.  The present owners wanted to update the house and completely remodel and add to the front of the house.  The new addition created two major axes.  The first was the central corridor which ran from the front door to the back of the house which fronted on Biscayne Bay.  The other, perpendicular to the first, was created by two fountains on each side of the central corridor.  The new living room has a 12'-0" coffered ceiling.  New bedrooms and baths were added on the second floor.  See floor plans below.  Ground floor plans are first and then the second floor plans.
