A University of Miami assistant professor’s Miami River home won the Architect’s Newspaper’s best design of a single-family house award.

Local architects Jacob Brillhart and his wife Melissa Brillhart designed their house in the River’s Spring Garden neighborhood, Curbed Miami reported.

“I just like here, the thinking of the details, the simplicity. It’s almost Jean Prouvé like—the house as machine, but not in the Corbu sense. And the fact that it’s all moving parts and different zones, so it’s a very dynamic house but done in a simple way,” one of the judges, Winka Dubbeldam, said.

The 1,500-square-foot house, located at 937 Northwest North River Drive, has front and back porches, 100 feet of glass spanning the front and rear and four sets of sliding glass doors.

The Brillharts bought the site for $165,000 in 2011, Miami-Dade property records show. [Curbed Miami]Katherine Kallergis
