Bird Key, FL

Built in 2021

Situated along an arterial canal of Bird Key, the design of this waterfront retreat was conceived as a place for family gathering while maintaining a strong sense of privacy. This three thousand square foot home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a den to support the small family atmosphere.

As you approach the site through a carefully manicured hardscape, the entry of the home is revealed by large expanses of glass that highlight a floating staircase. Ascending to the primary living level, you become oriented to experience the water views from the living room and kitchen open floor plan. Featuring fourteen and a half feet high ceilings, the tall walls of sliding glass blur the boundary between inside and outside and bring the blue and green hues thru its expansive glass. The connection to the water is reinforced by expansive balconies connecting the living room, kitchen, and primary living suite. The remaining two bedrooms are tucked behind the family room and offset from the primary volume to create privacy while highlighting framed views of Sarasota Bay.

Exposed concrete is paired with contrasting clean white stucco and warmed with natural wood ceiling elements. The wood carries from outside to in via operable glass walls while also warming the interior stark white kitchen and walls. Skyframe’s minimalist modern design and use of tall glazing perfectly situates the residence in its environment and creates a peaceful retreat that blends livability and natural immersion.
