The Bayside project is a historic residential home located in the Upper East Side of Miami, Fl. To preserve the historical aspect of the building, BC3 was requested to keep the original aesthetics of its front façade. This concept of old versus new enriched the final design which became a hybrid of the historical façade merging with a contemporary rear addition. The interior spaces were completely rearranged to provide the client with an open kitchen and dining area. The living room became a double height space with visual connection to the private rooms above. On the ground level a patio was located along the East and South perimeter, enabling the client to enjoy the surrounding landscape of the property. On the second level the patio runs continuously on the East façade connecting both bedrooms to a pleasant outdoor experience.
