Tuscan Residence for Mr. Floresca

This project is the best example of RPP helping its client to realize the unique objectives of their project. The design was centered around the client’s goals, with an ocean view and site planning for two luxury condominiums, as well as compliance with the local View Protection Ordinance.

The design encompasses two Tuscan style residences flanking a compact interior court yard. A romantic gated tower entry in the front residence leads through an inner intimate courtyard to a formal front paneled door. The tower’s second floor loggia, accessible through a bridged deck, is optimal for ocean views, and provides a serene place of meditation quality. The second residence, located on the back of the lot, features views of the coast from the secluded second floor balcony.

Varied low-pitched red tile roof lines, stone veneer, decorative railings, and wrought iron artwork all establish a comfortable garden atmosphere. The twentieth century Tuscan-inspired style is far more reaching than just that, incorporated elements from the European Renaissance, Moorish, and various Mediterranean styles. Materials of stone and earthen palettes gives the home the illusion of being one with the landscape.
