Jonathan Parks, of Sarasota’s Solstice Planning and Architecture, won two design awards from the American Institute of Architects Tampa Bay Chapter at its Celebrate Design awards reception Nov. 6.
Parks' LEED Platinum residence, Element House, received the first ever Sustainability Award and the mixed-use project Rosemary Square was recognized with the Merit Award for excellence in design. Both are in Sarasota.
The goal in building Element House was to create a home that reduced dependency on the power grid with a focus on nature and passive systems. The builder was NWC Construction.
The vision for Rosemary Square, built by Gilbane Building Co., was to create a “living room” for the neighborhood, which had become depressed over recent decades and lacked any form of public park.
Parks’ vision was to re-energize the community by bringing arts to Boulevard of the Arts.
