  • 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.
