BAY OAKS

Residential

Designing houses for resilience is critical in coastal areas along the Gulf of Mexico. This residence is certified Fortified-Gold – the investment in improving the roofing and building envelope will result in lower insurance premiums and better preparedness for the storms to come.

The house is elevated 4 feet above the Base Flood Elevation for an additional measure of safety. It’s simple forms express the organization of the interior spaces; materials are drawn from locally-harvested and -manufactured goods such as clay brick, pine timber, and standing seam roofing.
