Bay Isle

Longboat Key, FL

Built in 2022

This modern contemporary home seamlessly integrates innovation and functionality, overcoming the challenges presented by the pie-shaped lot and stringent homeowners’ association restrictions. The exterior, characterized by modern design, combines stucco, simulated wood aluminum siding, and aluminum louvers, creating a sleek and harmonious façade. The inverted V-shaped roof design cleverly conceals solar panels and adheres to homeowners’ association requirements, presenting a striking modern elevation. The second-floor glazed hallway functions as a gallery, connecting bayside rooms and offering a shaded retreat with a louvered overhang above.

As you ascend to the covered entry, via floating stairs, the experience is enhanced by a subtle glow over the reflecting pool, setting the tone for the exceptional design with-in. Solid wood-clad volumes flanking the entry cube create a compelling contrast, emphasizing the interplay between solids and voids. In the great room, expansive glazing on the bay side establishes a visual connection between interior spaces and the two-story decks beyond.

The floor plan strategically pivots at the stair and elevator tower, changing the angle to maximize the footprint on the challenging lot. The staircase tower, serving as a vertical axis, connects three floors with an open stringer and warm walnut tread design. Natural light bathes the interior through clerestory windows, creating an inviting atmosphere. Interior spaces boast walnut accents, complementing clean white cabinetry in the kitchen and wet bar area, adorned with thick stone countertops.

On the bay side of the home, the inverted roof extends above decks, offering unobstructed bay views through the mangroves. The symmetrical rear exterior stair progresses down to the pool deck, featuring a custom mosaic water feature that adds a touch of artistry. This modern residence seamlessly marries form and function, creating an unparalleled living experience that transcends the confines of traditional design.
