Phil Kean Design Group is proud to have been selected to design, build and provide interior services for the 2012 New American Home. The 2012 New American Home is a re-interpretation of the Classic White Box of the 60’s and 70’s that was made so popular by such famous architects and artists as Le Corbusier and Richard Meier.
While honoring the architecture of the past, the New American Home represents the priorities that are important to today’s lifestyle… details rather than size, leading edge technology, and functional and transitional spaces that have a style and feel that evokes calm and serenity. All this in addition to the architectural significance and environmentally sensitive details found throughout.
Comprised of walls of movable glass panels and motorized screens, the floor plan was designed so indoor and outdoor spaces flow into one another. The use of abundant natural lighting within the volumetric and spatial design creates a “WOW” factor while also providing a comfortable and serene living environment.
At 4,100 square feet, the house is displayed to appeal to the empty nester but has four additional rooms that could be converted to bedrooms if needed. The master suite with private workout studio, outdoor yoga deck, private sitting room and spa-like master bath is accessible by stairs or elevator and takes up the entire second floor. The guest bedroom is located on the main floor with an en-suite bath. Additional spaces include an art gallery, an artist studio, three second floor decks and a lower level lanai connecting to the pool and summer kitchen.
This home was unveiled and opened to the public at the International Builders Show in February 2012 in Orlando, Florida. It was again opened to the public in April 2012 during Orlando’s Parade of Homes.
