Brisa Azul

← Back to the Portfolio

Brisa Azul (Blue Breeze) dates back to the early 1890’s.  A recent head to toe renovation included hollowing out the interior to create an open and lofty floor plan, the reintroduction of an interior stair for access to the upstairs which had previously been accessible by an outdoor stair, and creating a back yard oasis with the addition of a swimming pool, gazebo, and lush landscaping.

This once diminished frame vernacular house now stands out as a distinctive example of how preservation and maintenance of historic resources can contribute to the sense of place and time, as well as the visual beauty of the historic Key West district.  In 2022 the Historic Florida Keys Foundation awarded this project with a Star and Certificate of Excellence for Preservation and Restoration.
