Butterfield Residence

Sarasota / Siesta Key

This very challenging lot sits right between two very beautiful residences that are part of the rich Sarasota Architectural history, the Healy Guest House (Cocoon House) and the Revere Quality House, both designed by Paul Rudolph. The new house expands out and up across the length of the site towards the bay. A large outdoor living area which houses the entry into the residence is located underneath the volume of the project facing the canal. Most of the private spaces are located on the first living level while the larger living areas and large terraces take advantage of the open views to the bay. This project is a collaboration between Lunardi Architecture (Architect of Record) and Carl Abbott FAIA (Design architect).
