The existing Mid-Rise Buildings were designed in a “Modern” Architectural style which relied upon straight-forward simplicity and inarticulate, non-ornamental design features which present a challenge when adding a new and exciting design element to. Our desire was to introduce new inspiring features that were not merely functional, but created an invitation for residents to participate in and enjoy the Southwest Florida outdoors without being exposed to the harshness it can bring. Additionally, we were sensitive to not introduce a new design element which would appear foreign or un-complementary to the existing buildings.

This 8-Story 48-Unit Multi-Family Condominium was a design study in 1996 to study a specific site’s usable capacity to support 5 buildings of similar size and thus determine the overall project’s financial viability. Designed to conform with the Mediterranean theme of the Gulf Harbour Community in Fort Myers, this rendering shows that character and elegance can be developed in a large multi-story structure.

Completed in 1999 this 120-Unit Multi-Family Coach Home development features 4 individually different unit types within each 8-unit building cluster ranging from 1,414-1,840 SF/AC. Each unit has internal access to it’s own 1-Car Garage and features 3 bedrooms, 2-Baths, Kitchens with eat-in Café, open Living rooms, and exterior screened Lanais. The design style is reminiscent of “Bermuda Architecture” employing a combination of pure-white flat-tiled hipped and gabled roofs and white trimmed windows adorning soft pastel colored walls and arched entries. Subtle movement and build-outs within the exterior stucco and utilizing reveal screeds aid in manipulating sunlight and shadows to create depth and scale within a relatively moderate budget.
