Triangle Ranch

Composed of 1,143 acres of lush Myakka landscape, Triangle Ranch had remained in the hands of one of Florida’s original Pioneer families for over a century before becoming a designated “FloridaForever” conservation area. Now, under the care of a new owner and theConservation Foundation, the Ranch has been restored to its optimum ecological function and become a living showcase for Florida’s natural beauty.  

 

Nestled amongst Triangle Ranch’s pristine wetlands and along the winding Myakka River lies a cluster of structures entrenched in Old Florida charm. Sweet Sparkman Architecture andInteriors was charged with creating two modest 12 x 12 Florida Cracker-inspired cottages to complement a 1936 pecky cypress cottage rescued from demolition and relocated from Siesta Key. Each cabin has its own unique characteristics and charm emphasized with small-scale simplicity. 

 

Described as a “victory for nature,”each cabin was designed and constructed with harmony and respect for the surrounding natural forces. A classic elevated block foundation perches each cottage safely above the flood plain and couples an authentic look with energy independence through passive solar design.
