palm beach florida


landscape design and design of new outdoor living area.



this gracious bermuda style palm beach home lacked some of the amenities and ambience required by an active boston couple who were drawn to south florida’s outdoor lifestyle. they contacted stephen magliocco, architect, who renovated their boston home years before. the firm was engaged to develop a completely new landscape plan for the property including extending the outdoor living space and amenities o reinforce the casual and lush west indies type atmosphere desired by the homeowners. also important to the design were a place for family gatherings,  casual outdoor dining, relaxing and intimate private spaces. scale and reference to the existing low profile style home was to be maintained.


an extensive cyprus pergola and outdoor kitchen were added along with a contiguous walkway system that connects each of the previously separate areas of the property. the walkway was conceived to evoke the experience of visiting a botanical garden or nature trail. the entry to the “secret” garden through a discrete wooden gate completes the theme and sets the mood.  a custom hand made tile refurbished pool along with outcroppings of specially selected boulders and lagoon type water features are laced throughout.

a new modern house on cape cod

this stephen magliocco designed cape cod modern house is nearing completion. the house sits on a sloped site and draws on the local vernacular in a referential rather than literal manner . the mood and spirit of an outer cape home was the inspiration. the shingle and clapboard low profile house is carefully orientated with rooms that are articulated to respond to the view and the direction of the sun throughout the day. each functioning work/live space enjoys a visual outdoor connection to the natural habitat, open sky and and the forested site.
