This 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath, 4,000 SF home is located in downtown Orlando on land that once housed a mission-revival style Catholic monastery. While designing the house, Ryan Young’s introspection developed into a modern experiment with materials: exposed steel beams and raw steel accents, polished concrete floors complete with natural cracks, beautiful walnut and cherry woods not covered with stain but left natural with exposed knots and imperfections, coquina (shell) features indigenous to Florida and to the original monastery structure, and a few signature accents of COR-TEN steel which is a curiosity to watch as it changes and patinas to a beautiful earthen amber.
The result of this experiment is a space that is modern, open, and light-filled with a pleasant mix of natural, exposed materials that exude a comfortable warmth that feels connected to the land and to the Young family.
The home has been featured on dwell.com and in the pages of Orlando Magazine.
