Copper Beach Gardens is a renovation of a load bearing flat roof structure with traditional rat-trap brick- bonding providing thermal insulation, clay roof-tile & glazed ceramic trellis panels. The addition maintains the original grammar while creating contemporary spaces with non-plastered local brick finish and concrete. A re-interpreted courtyard serves as the center with a pool. The concrete walls merge seamlessly with the exposed brick forming a grey-white palette accented by teal ceramic trellis & pool.
