Puesta de Sol

Longboat Key, FL

Built in 2021

Located on a private beach, this three-story masterwork soaks up every sunset (puesta del sol)over the Gulf of Mexico. The home design maximizes the small buildable footprint area making the home feel much larger than it is. The connection to the beach and Gulf broadens the perceived space of the home to include the water. Floor to ceiling glass walls were used across most of the waterfront elevation to add light, breeze, and life to the home. The interior elements also speak to its setting, turquoise glazed backslash tile closely resembles the waters color while the wood toned floors mimic the windswept sand dunes outside.  The exterior Architecture combines white stark stucco, silver metals and warm tropical wood, the contrast sharply separates the light interior spaces from the bright beach setting.

The ground floor is completely flood prone and only used for storage and garage space. Above, the main living level has an open concept great room with a guest bedroom and den. The third floor contains the remaining three ensuite bedrooms all with outdoor balconies for the best sunset views. Coming in under four thousand square feet, the whole home was designed around two inspirational pictures – one for the street frontage, and the second of the kitchen island. The plans built off the inspired volumes and the back decks created the most amount of outdoor living possible. The floor to ceiling bi-parting sliding doors pocket for entertaining as the interior space spills outside to a generous covered deck to create one harmonious indoor outdoor living space.
