The home’s original floor plan, courtyard layout and metal work revealed an impressive 1950s aesthetic. However, upon completion, the demands of a growing family called the need for further renovations, which were completed in three distinct phases.
The first renovation was conceptualized and executed by homeowner and architect, Debby Schiller. For the second renovation, Debby teamed up with her father, Bernie Rosen of Rosen and Associates in Montreal, to freshen up the midcentury home design. For the third and final renovation, Debby, Rosen and Associates as well as Studio 9 of Jacksonville pulled together to bring the last imperative phase to completion in 2014.
The number one driving force behind the project was to enable the inhabitants to fully experience the surrounding river views.
