VZone Water Views

A challenging and rewarding project as FEMA changed the demarcations during the design, resulting in a great deal of design and engineering input to ensure that this was an attractive and functional property, per the original client remit.


This coastal contemporary house is located on Bird Key, where the clients wanted to build a seasonal home for future retirement. The home was designed with lots of glass, maximizing the views facing south and towards Sarasota Yacht club and giving optimum entertainment space.

Expansive Views & Wind Zone Construction

Open Views In Wind Zone Construction

This is a VZone (High-Velocity Hurricane Zones) home and the lot orientation was wider than the depth and also in a flood zone and it had to be raised, which further benefited the views.
