Modern Florida Mansion by Office for Architecture

Entrance of the Spencer House by Guy Peterson from Office for Architecture, Florida

Guy Peterson from Sarasota-based Office for Architecture designed Spencer House, interesting modern mansion located in Downtown Sarasota, Florida. Already on the first sight you will notice this house is nothing like others in the neighborhood.


This fortress-like design makes it stand out even when you compare it to other modern homes around the world. Almost two floors tall concrete wall surrounds this mansion, offering almost the highest level of privacy I've seen so far. (Only house I would put in front of this one when it comes to privacy is Safe House by KWK Promes in Poland). Interesting design detail are square holes which were placed on the house as well.


While upper floors are almost windowless, ground floor walls are made completely out of glass, connecting interiors with outdoor living space, terraces and covered indoor/outdoor swimming pool. Open floor plan layout allowed interiors to stay bright and well lit by the daylight. Another detail that catched my attention is rooftop terrace which proved how every part of house can have its purpose and can be well used.
