Franck & Lohsen Architects

Seaside Residence

Alys Beach, Florida

Located within an exclusive Emerald Coast resort enclave, this unique home follows the newly-established Moroccan style architecture of this new traditional village on the Gulf of Mexico. The unique style of architecture features stepped tile roofs, white-washed stucco walls, and whimsical detailing—as can be seen on the door surrounds, light fixtures and numerous other locations throughout the property.

A series of private and public rooms envelope a swimming pool inside an open courtyard, which is surrounded by a cloister of rich ebony woods, an exterior fireplace, Pompeian orange walls and colorful Cuban tiles. A playful fountain commanding the courtyard enlivens this intimate retreat, providing a focus for the courtyard and creating a calming ambiance throughout the property.
