Bourne Residence, St. Petersburg, FL, 1953 Project Not Built


"The house which was never built was designed with a pitched roof and post-and-beam wood construction for a typical suburban lot. The primary attribute visible from the street is a series of lightly constructed sheltering parasols that create an enclosure for both the carport and the exterior living area below. As opposed to the typical monolithic stucco builder house in Florida, this prototype projects two pitched skeletal structures toward the curb, which encompass an equal amount of space as the enclosed area of the house located at the rear of the lot."
