Sanger Residence

St Petersburg, Florida 

Site Area:     9,145 sf

Built Area:    2,240

Completion: 2018 

With their primary residence in New Hampshire, the Sanger Residence Owners, purchased an original 1952 Florida Ranch house to live during the winter months. They traveled the U.S. looking for their winter escape before settling in the up and coming city of St Petersburg, Florida. They fell in love with the mature oak trees surrounding the site and the property’s proximity to outdoor activities. Their goal was to entertain and enjoy the tropical climate as much as possible.   

 

The existing house was small and poorly modified over the years, yet the Owners had a simple request, which was to reuse the existing structure while adding spaces to make the home a private outdoor oasis for them and their guests.

OWA transformed our 1950 Florida block house into an artful space that achieves that rare combination of inspiring design and casual, easy living. Inside and out, we love it.

The approach for the renovation and addition was to create an outdoor-centric design that connected as many indoor spaces to the exterior. The result was a split-volume structure, centered around multiple outdoor living areas.  

 

A covered breezeway separates the two volumes with each space oriented towards the pool deck. The master suite addition is a detached volume connected by a new roofline that purposefully engages the existing structure. A site perimeter wall creates the boundaries for an outdoor space that extends from the interior, making the home feel much larger than its actual footprint, while also providing privacy from adjacent neighbors.

 

The outcome is a home design that conveys an environmental intimacy that is distinctly Floridian.
