    The ‘Tree House’ in Coconut Grove was designed by Peter Augustus Jefferson, FAIA in 1985. Mr. Jefferson ; he started his practice in Miami where he designed several homes inspired by the Florida Cracker house and others with a Sub-Tropical Modern flair inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, Paul Rudolph and Ralph Spencer Twitchell. . SOW Design Studio was commissioned in 2013 to add 1,500 s.f. and reconfigure the ground floor and second floor to become better integrated with the rest of the home.

    The house at Camp Biscayne [Tree House] is nestled in a tropical hardwood Hammock, surrounded by large mature live oaks and saw palmettos.

    The home seems to sit on stilts, with most living spaces on a second level with cedar batten vaulted ceilings culminating on a clerestory balcony lookout

    Staying respectful to the original design style, we opened an atrium leading up to the second (main) floor, adding a grander dimension to the space
