PARKS: Sarasota, Florida
Located at the world famous Siesta Key public beach, Sweet Sparkman Architects in association with Kimley Horn and Associates Engineering provided full service design and construction administration for the new "world class" park. The built amenities included the renovation of the historically designated Siebert Pavilion, new concession buildings, restrooms, wedding pavilion, multiuse shelters, and picnic pavilions. The project involved multiple stakeholder meetings to ensure community support and consensus with the design proposals. The west additions adjacent to the Siebert Pavilion are intended to reflect a current interpretation of the Sarasota School of Architecture, while the east amenities express a contemporary approach to subtropical coastal architecture.
