Beautiful 2-story modern house in Biscayne Bay
This beautiful 2-story modern house in Biscayne Bay was designed in partnership with Gabriela Caicedo, founder of Home Vision DNA, a very talented Miami architect. The plans were developed with BIM technology.
The building is very aerial with no structural beams. All floors are flat, using a technology that ARPER has mastered over the years, consisting of flat slabs with integrated beams.
