Siesta key house
Spanish-Mediterranean design with an unyielding push to form even the most ordinary spaces into works of art. Rich elements and craftsmanship were brought together to make up a warm color palate. Refined details and lush landscape used to bring about the feel of the many influences encompassed in the western Mediterranean areas.
Curved elegant stair from conception to reality with waterfall treads that flow down to the open foyer.
Arched exterior covered decks include classical detailing with stone trim at archways and column capitals.
Even the smallest features on the house carry classical detailing that follow a cohesive design language through every part of the house.
An overall breathtaking theme using murals, beautiful wood and stone elements, fresco-ed ceilings, ornate railings, stone archways, copper gutters and downspouts and hand crafted tile are just some of the details carefully knit together to give homage to familiar settings on far off coast lines. Lighting is an essential in any home but there is nothing utilitarian about the fixtures of this dwelling as they add elegance and cohesiveness to further inspire the design. Connecting the home and pool area into one cohesive transition was no simple feat as there was a great degree of complexity to bring an uncommon pool design together, using pillars to elevate it to the same height as the home.
Exterior elements of the house have to be classical and durable to handle to stress of gulf front weather. Natural stone, hand applied stucco, clay and mortar roofing, copper flashing, and wood ceilings are all utilized on the exterior to weave hurricane resistant materials and elegance.
