Conrad Beach Community

Sweet Sparkman Architects as Architects

Located a short walk from Longboat Village and the Gulf of Mexico, Conrad Beach is a resort community incorporating ecologically sensitive planning and design. Designed to recall Florida cracker-style cottages, the houses embody the Florida House principles of sustainable development, including energy efficiency and environmentally responsible materials. The community is modeled on small costal villages where walking and biking are part of the community spirit, and where walkable streets and front porches create a sense of neighborhood. More than 50% of the site was retained as open space for recreation and native landscaping.
