NATIONAL AWARD WINNER!
ASSOCIATION OF LICENSED ARCHITECTS SILVER AWARD RECIPIENT
The Lido Key Bay Porch addition was recognized by the Association of Licensed Architects with a National Silver Award. The addition opens the existing house and connects to Sarasota Bay with 12’ wide stairs carved out from the plinth. The addition adds a mezzanine level, an interior stair, and a dining wing as well as a generous shaded porch on water. A glass bridge extends through the width of the house from the foyer to a balcony on the bay, pulling the resident toward the shaded porch. Sixteen feet of sliding doors pocket to open up the living to the new shaded porch on the water. The roof of the porch spans thirty feet over the pool, framing long views over the bay, with only a delicate steel column holding its corner.
