AIA Florida / Caribbean Honor Award

Award of Excellence for Interior Design

A second condominium renovation was again awarded the highest interior design award from the Florida / Caribbean chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Only two interiors were recognized with an Honor Award of Excellence. The award was presented at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando. The design-built condominium is on the 14th floor of Siesta Key’s Terrace Building. A fifteen-foot-long counter was built in a single pour without a seam. Ribbed bamboo plywood covers the living space and folds to conceal the media wall. This outsized folded surface ties the condo unit together and provides warmth. All mechanical, lighting, and entertainment systems remain discrete.
