Advantages of an elevated home.

A growing number of Miami Beach homes are being designed with higher-than-ground living spaces, as homeowners and builders try to protect against frequent flooding and rising sea levels.

Buildings or elevated structures have been repeated as a constructive typology throughout the history of architecture; popular architecture has been able to develop very interesting solutions such as the hórreos, which are small warehouses raised on columns, or constructions supported on large piles over rivers or swamps.

So, let's take a look at the main advantages of buildings raised over the ground.

1-Preventing animals from entering the house.

2-Protecting the interior from filtration and humidity.

3-Protecting the lower part of a house from contact with people, animals, or objects, which causes faster deterioration of the facade.

4 -In certain cases, helping to better isolate the interior of the house.

5-Saving, in a simple way, the irregularities of the ground without having to alter it with earthworks.
