Home is Where the Art Is

Lido Shores has a unique place in architectural history. Inspired by the visions of Ralph Twitchell and Paul Rudolph, an entire movement of architecture was founded by and named after the Sarasota School of Architecture. This form of modern design emerged in the 1940s and lasted through the middle of the 1960s, leaving a lasting imprint on the urban landscape of Sarasota.

It is characterized by the mesh of tropical style and post-war influences, allowing for open designs that bring natural influences into a space to meet the minimalistic yet heavily characteristic silhouettes of the modernist art movement. In the early 1950s, Philip Hiss, a progressive developer of the time, hired Paul Rudolph to design an enclave of this modern style. Thus birthed Lido Shores.
 
Today Lido Shores is home to some of the most architecturally significant homes in Southwest Florida, such as Harkavy House, The Hiss Studio, and Paul Rudolph’s Umbrella House. Well-recognized current architects, such as Jonathan Parks, Guy Peterson, and Clifford Scholz are well-recognized and talented current architects who’s modern and palladium designed are influenced by the Sarasota School of Architecture movement, like this waterfront home!
