The John Ringling Parkway Addition sits on the bay between St. Armand’s Key and City Island. With commanding views of the city over Sarasota Bay, the existing house was a Sarasota School Modern by Architect Tim Seibert. The challenge was to add a sizable addition while still preserving and restoring the ascetic and scale of the older house. The 60’s era structure spanned the breadth of the site, leaving precious little room to expand. A strategy was developed to create a structure which bridges over the original view and provides shade to the long south facing glass wall of the original great room.
