Vibrant Movement, Classic Design
We worked closely with this family, taking root in one of Sarasota’s oldest neighborhoods, to identify their outdoor living style in compliment to the classic architecture of their home.We helped site the home to maximize backyard living, and to salvage three grand live oaks on the property. In the front yard, form and detail took center stage.

The front facade is highlighted by boxwood gardens with Italian Cypress focal points. The driveway patterning helps to diminish the size of the circulation, creating a courtyard aesthetic. In the backyard, the pool and deck allow for separate but united gathering spaces for children and adults alike. The visual anchor for the family's outdoor living experience is a beautifully detailed sitting, reading and yoga garden, with a backlit thermally treated ash wall, polished poured-in-place concrete stepping stones, and cantilevered steps that compliment the silver travertine pool deck. Custom planters and a fire table unify the space through scale and materials that reflect the honed concrete terraces.
