Design-Build Breaking Ground!
Halflants + Pichette developed the design for a trapezoidal site on Longboat Key taking full advantage of the shape of the site. The L-shape floor plan cradles an outdoor shaded room facing the long view across Sarasota Bay. Every room of the house is oriented around the bayfront porch which houses the raised pool and spa. The porch is shaded by a roof terrace more than twenty feet above. A series of slim evenly-spaced steel columns supports the thin roof above. An exterior aluminum perforated stair suspended above the pool will provide access to the roof terrace. A glass bridge running the length of the house from the entry foyer to the dining room is aligned with a linear skylight above bringing unexpected daylight to the entry sequence
