Dramatic Vue

Built in 2023

Bird Key | Sarasota, FL

This home design integrates unobstructed views of Sarasota Bay, cleverly hinted from the driveway through an artfully designed louvered portal. This unique feature not only serves as an aesthetic highlight but also ensures privacy within the transparent east-west opening Great Room. The architectural massing flanks either side of the Great Room, giving rise to a captivating double-height living area. Anchoring one side, a well-appointed kitchen and family room harmonize with the opposing primary suite. The residence spans 4,600 square feet of conditioned space, gracefully extending to terraced outdoor spaces adorned with lush vegetation.

Within the modest yet luxurious three-bedroom, three-bath home, all the essentials of a forever home. A dedicated wine room, a generously proportioned shared study, a convenient elevator, and private balconies for each bedroom contribute to the overall functionality and comfort of the space. Ascending the front staircase natural light filters through a roof oculus, casting an ever-changing play of light on the façade as the sun gracefully traverses the sky, with pronounced dramatic grazing during the winter months.

The rear waterside space mirrors this interplay with an open-air space pinned by a mid-levelperimeter beam. A visually striking wood-clad ceiling hovers another story above the beams, seamlessly sliding into the home’s interior to become the Great Room’s ceiling. The waterfront elevation juxtaposes the Great Room portal with a two-story glass corner volume, ensuring that no sliver of the breathtaking view is missed from the family room. The continuity of glass from floor to ceiling, extending to the roof of the second story, creates a stunning visual impact. Opaque panels discreetly conceal the intermediate floor structure, housing HVAC elements, glass attachments, and concealed pockets for drapery and blackout shades. The thoughtfully designed kitchen overlooks the family room and the Bay, utilizing a muted color palette to seamlessly translate the vibrant exterior into the interior finishes, with white lacquered cabinetry, a glass tile backsplash reflecting Sarasota’s watercolor, and elegant white quartz marbled countertops.
