Incredible design project of a cantilever house on stilts

The unique Seagrape residence with a total area of 279 square meters has been designed and realized by the studio's talented professionals and designers Traction Architecture. It is located in the town of Anna Maria Florida, USA, And her engineering project was completed in 2013.

The unusual design of the house has a three-storey construction, with a unique pitched roof and a fantastic exterior that fits perfectly into the surrounding landscape. The façade of the building is in a neutral peach color palette, perfectly matched with a variety of window openings of different shapes and stunning balconies.

A megaphone-shaped deck extends outward from the volume of the building to amplify the sound of the waves crashing against the shore. Fine details such as lines of aluminum on the west, inlaid in the concrete floor, and carvings in the exterior cypress wall cladding triangulate the structure's position across the Gulf of Mexico toward the cities of Tulum and Veracruz, which represents a bow toward distant civilizations.

The cottage has a wedge-shaped outline, which was derived from the desire to achieve volumetric and thermal efficiency while maximizing views of the bay. The bedrooms have been envisioned as spaces of quiet respite with cypress built-in modules framing the sea and facilitating contemplative exploration.

Photovoltaic panels in the decor of the facade of the house provide the bulk of the home's energy needs. It's also worth noting that this residence is the first LEED Platinum certified cottage on Anna Maria Island.
