The Zen Retreat by Etchboo Design
Etchboo Design has sent us images of a modern home they designed to complement and blend in a historic neighborhood in St. Augustine, Florida. Historical for its time, this handsome contemporary residence was built in 2007 on a small infill lot in a neighborhood of homes, dating from the 1800′s. The home is meticulously crafted and uniquely designed to take full advantage of this incredible location. The view from each window has a unique story to tell, framing historical elements in nearby structures, a 100′ Bronze cross from a nearby Mission, incredible azure waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway. The slender design of the 2,400 square foot residence consists of two living floors, and an outdoor skydeck to entertain guests and take in the amazing setting. With the use of natural materials and muted colors the home blends incredibly well.
