Delicate Modern House by the Designers of Stuart Miller’s Gigantic Star Island Supervillain Lair Mansions Asks $12.49M
Whatever other buildings they’ve done, whether good or bad, Domo Architecture is a little notorious on Miami’s architecture scene for designing some absolutely ridiculous homes on Star Island for Lennar development mogul Stuart Miller. This includes the latest and biggest, a 70,000 square foot (yes 70,000) pile of sinuous concrete forms wrapping around a private jungle. Another Domo design, however, at 6411 Allison Road on Allison Island, coming in at a ‘mere’ 8,500 square feet, is a much more subtle and even an intellectual building.
From the front all that’s visible is a louvered box with levels of indoor-outdoor living, both permeable by and protected from the outside world. Facing he water, the light airy box has been mirrored by its opposite, a glass box set in a deep, heavy concrete frame in blistering white. It’s the old ying yang, an architectural trope used extensively since time immemorial. Funny thing though, after 191 days on the market the Allison Island home hasn’t sold yet, and is currently asking $12,490,000.
