This project was conceived for a mid-western family who wanted to be transported to a different environment when visiting their vacation home. Their want to be transported to a resort-like place while keeping the gulf front property as low maintenance as possible resulted in the enhanced and extended dunescape environment. The residence, a series of bungalow structures, pool and house proper are situated I 5′ above sea level. Additional dunes were graded to ease the I 5′ grade difference and incorporate the house proper into the setting. A long boardwalk both visually and physically connects the Gulf of Mexico and the lake on the other end.
