Design A w A r d s Honor AwArd of ExcEllEncE for nEw work Spencer House, Sarasota, Florida Guy Peterson OFA, Inc., Sarasota, Florida The articulation of the street frontage balanced with privacy creates a strong, simple, elegant statement. The well-executed program shows restraint, uses simple materials and produces beautiful geometric expression. PHOTOGRAPHy By THE GREG WILSON GROuP Sited on a busy street in an established neighborhood, this house was designed to insure privacy and provide outdoor living inside the walls. The house consists of a vertical tower emerging from a horizontal base that is at grade and contains the main living spaces. The home's outdoor spaces occur on the ground plane and vertically inside the structure. Sarasota Beach Pavilions, Sarasota County, Florida Sweet Sparkman Architects, Inc., Sarasota, Florida There is an intelligence in these buildings that is too often missing from public structures and that intelligence is married to the high quality of the aesthetics. The basic utilitarian function of the pavilions is elevated to the level of celebration. florida/caribbean ARCHITECT | fall 2014 PHOTOGRAPHy By WILLIAM SPEER When Sarasota County commissioned a series of beachside park restrooms, the design team used an abstract version of sea oats, the vegetation synonymous with Gulf beaches, to create a theme for each pavilion. The pavilions provide new ADA compliant facilities built to withstand hurricane force winds, as well as other sustainable features including clerestory louvers for passive ventilation, cisterns for rainwater collection and skylights for daylight harvesting. 11
