Miller Guest House

  • Paul also designed the Miller Residence, of which this guest house is an extension.

  • Paul wanted to give an impression of a floating box, so he suspended the guest house over land and water with cantilevered boardwalk.

  • Paul has experimented similar floating mass effect in many other projects such as the Burnette Residence and the Finney Guest House.
