ARCHITECT'S

Rudolph originally specified poured concrete for the Milam house construction in 1959, but smooth-cast sand-colored concrete blocks turned out to cost only half as much so he changed the design to accommodate concrete block dimensions a year later in 1960. The distinct three-dimensional eastern facade of the building overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, rising over 28 feet above the sea. This project was Rudolph’s first building to incorporate an air-conditioning unit.The form of the walls and floors were constructed in such a way that it could block off the sun rays during florida’s hot temperatures.Milam residence was named ''House of the Year'' in 1963 by The Architectural Record.The Milam Residence was Paul’s last house in Florida before he started his job as Chairman at Yale.In 1969-1973, Rudolph further extended the house by adding a bedroom, a guesthouse, a 3-car garage and a swimming pool.(© Paul Rudolph Heritage Foundation)
