Architect Brion Jeanette has turned his attention once again to creating a unique and environmentally sensitive home that will surely become another of his iconic architectural masterpieces.

It’s gentle curves, complement its nautical positioning, so that it sits proudly, like a beacon, at the water's edge. The house is elevated on pilings to address the projected rise and tide and it is also protected by a stunning rock revetment that helps protect not only this incredible home but the cove it overlooks. But AQUARIUM is not just a stunning piece of art, active and passive energy techniques are cleverly designed into the sustainable home that could become net zero, when completed. AQUARIUM enjoys approximately 7000 ft.² of incredible living space with approximately 2200 ft.² of outside decks and open space. AQUARIUM is designed for an owner that loves nature, the art of architecture, and seeks individuality.
