About Bird Key Modern Designed by Guy Peterson

647 Mourning Dove Drive
Built 2004
Residential Architect: Guy Peterson

Landscape Architect: David Young

Guy Peterson designed this spectacular bay front home on Bird Key as homage to Bauhaus principles of light, air, space, clarity and simple materials, integrating the exterior and interior. Enjoy stunning views of Big Pass, Siesta Key and the city skyline. Located on Bird Key, this 4,800-square-foot house uses a strong horizontal organization to emphasize the sweeping view of the Sarasota mainland across the bay as well as the Gulf of Mexico. Floating one level above grade, this two-story structure is a carefully articulated rectangle that provides order and logic in its organization but drama and mystery in its spatial experiences.

The siting of this house and its relationship to the ground plane, courtyard, pool and other exterior spaces reflect the owner’s desire for privacy yet take advantage of the magnificent views. Instead of window treatments, combinations of clear and translucent glass are used to provide both privacy and views.

The landscaping, by David Young, is geometric and restrained, yet full enough to provide shade and privacy, as well as foliage that mirrors the lines and angles of the house.
