Venetian Isle residence, located on San Marco Island of Venetian Islands in Miami, is a prime example of luxury waterfront living in South Florida. This 10,500 sf home was a rehabilitation project of a structure originally constructed in 2005. The new exterior space is designed to maximize views out to the bay with a minimalist approach to the coastal planting design. Ornamental grasses, native palms and understory plantings were used to soften the overpowering presence of the existing structure. The site grounds include a 1,200 sf pool, a 750 sf pool cabana structure, a 4,000 sf entertainment roof deck, two spas, an herb and fragrant plant kitchen garden, a bocce ball court and over 25,000 sf of bay front outdoor entertainment space. Cadence worked with the Client from concept design through construction and permit documentation.
