BAY PORCH HOUSE
SILVER AWARD | BEST OVERALL HOME - OVER $2 MILLION
As the residence turns its back against a crowded neighboring property, the outdoor shaded room opens to the expansive views over Sarasota Bay. The house stair-steps along both side yards to meeting the daylight plane zoning requirement. An aluminum perforated stair emerges out of the house, suspended more than twenty feet above the pool to provide access to a rooftop terrace. The rooftop terrace provides additional shade to the pool and terrace areas below without impacting the view by utilizing slim evenly spaced steel columns.
