Mark Sultana’s Tour and Talk

The Mark Sultana-designed “Picture Frame” house proved to be a great venue for a Lido Shores tour, talk and sunset reception. The large gathering of 122 fans of modern architecture enjoyed both Sultana’s hour-long talk about the house design and the wonderful wine and food buffet prepared by members of SAF. Five architects enrolled for AIA’s two CEUs and eight new members joined SAF. It was a perfect event in an extraordinary house.

August 4, 2012: House Tour on Lido Shores

Join SAF for a Lido Shores House Tour with Architect Mark Sultana. This stellar evening August 4 Lido Shores House Tour with Architect Mark Sultanawill feature a talk by architect Mark Sultana, principal of DSDG, and a wine reception and glorious Sarasota sunset on the Gulf. Registered architects will receive 2 AIA CE HSW & SD Units through AIA Florida Gulf Coast by attending the talk.

The “Picture Frame” house, an international style modern residence built in 2012, takes full advantage of 360 degree views of downtown Sarasota, the Gulf of Mexico, Sarasota Bay and New Pass. This 6,400 square foot residence is designed around a central courtyard which connects the street-side garage and guest house to the bayside main house via fire bowls and a lap pool-lined walkway on the ground level and a dramatic steel bridge on the second level. The façade of the residence is made up of a series of picture frames that frame the architecture and the floor-to-ceiling glass throughout. The bow of the main house balcony juts out like a ship breaking free from the rear frame, becoming a scenic overlook. This overlook is rivaled by the dramatic roof top terrace that is made up of wood decking and a grass putting green which has a 360 degree panorama of the surroundings.

This is a must-attend event for modern architecture fans. Advance reservations strongly suggested. Be sure not to miss this stunning house tour and spectacular sunset party. See you there! Photo by Detlev Von Kessel.
