The Pavilion House, William Rupp?s mid-sixties home on Lido Shores, embodies many of the concepts of the Sarasota School of Architecture. Renovated and updated in 2007 by Seibert Architects, the home is a shining example of mid-century modern design. Strong horizontal planes, floor-to-ceiling glass, a floating roof and glassed-in areas of natural growing space that blend the outdoors with the indoors make this home an incredible example of many of the design solutions at work in the Sarasota Modern style. The black river stone lap pool flanking the main living room is accented creatively with several mini waterfalls. The property is walled and gated and the generous private lot contains specimen trees, lush foliage and dramatic lighting, which is enjoyed from most rooms in this fantastic home. The lines are clean and most utilitarian areas are concealed behind almost seamless ?wall-closets? and cabinets. Natural light flows in through the numerous skylights and walls of glass. Lido Shores is located very near St. Armands and the culture of Sarasota''s downtown and offers its residents a private, gated beach access.
