ARCHITECTURE ON THE CUTTING EDGE

Clean-Lined Furnishings And An Understated Palette Complement The Classically Modern Form Of An Eco-Friendly Home In Sarasota

 
 
 

Streamlined architectural details and the grid of the elevated pool and terrace draw the eye toward an intimate setting inside this Sarasota home. A sunbathing and stargazing upper terrace vertically maximizes the area. The home’s front entrance sits at the intersection of the public and private spaces.

An elevated terrace with a geometric pool and carefully coiffed greenery rises to welcome home one Sarasota family with open arms and an energy-efficient mind.

Understated architecture and clean-lined furnishings answer to the owners’ penchant for a modern-minimalist approach.

A warm palette and open layout make entertaining a must-do for this home, where architecture and design marry water and sky. “The concept was to separate the family’s needs for privacy and entertaining using architectural elements while tying the design together with light, form and repetition,” architect and designer Jonathan Parks says. “The floor plan reflects these considerations with a distinct delineation between the public and private areas.”
