  3. 3. OF THE YEAR Votes have been cast, ballots have been tallied and the winners of SRQ’s 4th Annual Home of the Year competition are officially, well, official. Our 2008 winners are some of the most innovative architects, builders and designers in Sarasota’s burgeoning new school. Inspired by Sarasota’s modern heritage and unique natural beauty—the aptly named Schrock- Solstice House, for example, faces the direction of the summer solstice—winners competed in five cate- gories including Kitchen, Outdoor Area, Bathroom, Overall Home $2 million and under and Overall Home over $2 million. Local professionals submitted photography, floor plans and concept statements representing their best work in home design to com- pete for SRQ Home’s Platinum, Gold and Silver Awards. SRQ selected a panel of expert judges from outside the Sarasota-Manatee area, the contest juris- diction, to participate. We invite you to take an exclusive tour of SRQ Home’s winning residences. In the pages that follow, one Sarasota School of Architecture home gets a his- toric facelift, a modest pool house embraces modern and expands living space, and water elements and lush, tropical landscapes bring the outdoors inside. But, first, meet our judges. THE HOME OF THE YEAR COMPETITION IS PRODUCED BY SRQ: SARASOTA’S PREMIER MAGAZINE; COORDINATED BY GREGORY LOCKLEAR/EDITORIAL PROGRAMS COORDINATOR SRQ: SARASOTA’S PREMIER MAGAZINE 51 MAR 2008 SRQMAG.COM

  5. 5. SILVER WINNER CANAL FRONT RESIDENCE THE SCHIMBERG GROUP This 4,000 square-foot residence was certified and designed under Florida Green Building Standards with zero wasted space, passive cooling, highly efficient mechanical systems (e.g., low flow fixtures and a tankless water heater with recir- culation pump) and environmental materials—recycled glass and tile, natural basalt stone and cypress planks—throughout. By positioning the house on the site to maximize the beautiful views of Sarasota Bay and the surrounding canal, the architect was able to take a pavilion concept used with modern elements to create an environmentally sustainable, custom home. Exterior walls extend beyond con- necting perpendicular walls, directing one’s eye towards the water. The house, located in a FEMA zone, was scaled appropriately for the neighborhood by placing the second story bedrooms over the garage, keeping the remaining house to a sin- gle story. The five-foot-high foundation is painted a greenish color to blend it into the landscape allowing the house to float and appear less massive. The use of basalt stone carries through the house, from the mailbox and a centralized archi- tectural wall to the exterior in a disappearing edge pool wall, and unites the home’s sensual experience from beginning to end.
