Sarasota, Florida’s Lotus on Orange is a Best in American Living Award winner for Single Family, One of a Kind Custom Home, and our Home of the Week!
This project was designed with consideration of the clients’ love of European Modern styling in mind, as well as their love of the warmth of California-style modern homes. The large expanses of carefully-placed glass allow for natural day-lighting throughout the home, while large sliders and casement glass allow for passive ventilation through the home.
The materials palette is warm, simple, and punctuated by clean lines and strong geometry. Polished concrete floors were chosen for their durability, thermal massing effect, and natural beauty. Cypress wood detailing, terrazzo tiles, and bamboo panels counter-balance the smooth white walls of the home’s interior, which serves to provide bouncing light and a framework for viewing the outdoor spaces.
