Designed by Merge Architects, The Bravais is an exploration of the relationship between location, topography, form & material. Utilizing a design strategy of merging & overlapping volumes, this 8,600 sqft, 7 bedroom home mirrors the unique bayou-ravine grounds in a meeting between geometry and geography. Formed from fourteen folded planes, The Bravais rises like a sculpture where materials including metal, concrete, stone, wood, & steel juxtapose & work to create & imply spatial divisions. Amenities include 2 kitchens, Owner's wing, 2 downstairs suites, 2-story foyer & living, game, media, elevator, 4 car garage & full home automation. With thousands of sqft in outdoor entertaining spaces, the residence is enjoyed equally from the exterior as interior. Outdoor features include a 2-story gazebo (full kitchen & bath), koi pond, half-court basketball (doubles as valet parking), numerous patios/courtyards/balconies, & a 60’ infinity-edge waterfall pool which "falls" into the bayou below.
