Stroud and Boyd Development, Sarasota, FL, 1953 Project Not Built


 

"In approaching the problem of development houses the architect has concentrated his efforts on the use of modular construction, varying the number and size of the rooms by manipulating the space between the carport and the house. An attempt has also been made to vary the house in appearance, and the facilities are provided by the manipulation of architectural space rather than by arbitrary changes of material, roof pitches, or the usual devices. The result is a highly simplified structure suitable to multiple productions, with consideration for all cost factors involved. The objective is to accomplish a pleasant and above average family environment with a reasonable choice of arrangements within a consistent idea."
