It has won numerous architectural awards, including the American Institute of Architects’ State of Florida Design Award of Excellence, and the American Institute of Architects’ Tampa Bay Chapter Design Merit Award “Best Modern Building in Florida.”  Built primarily from concrete, raw steel and high-impact-resistant glass, the north-to-south facing property features an open-air office environment designed to capture natural light throughout the building while keeping temperatures cool. Two large suites include ample, flexible office and meeting space.  The building also includes a theater and full kitchen.

Views of the intercoastal from virtually every space. https://www.gregwilsonphoto.com/blog/2017/3/another-beautiful-home-with-style This home with Style has views of the intercoastal from virtually every space.  Architect Randy Sample working with the lay of the land rather than bulldozing a lot flat designed the exterior of the residence.  As a result the home doesn't have a bad angle of view.  No matter where you stand the view is stunning and invites more study.  For the designing the interior the residents flew in Architect Walter Jennings of Fayetteville, AK who believes in creating a harmony between the building and its natural surroundings with a generous use of natural light.  As such he maximized the views of the intercoastal.  The builder was Ryan Perrone of Nautilus Homes, who specialize in the construction of luxury waterfront homes.

Architect Gary Hoyt's Inspired Design of Patriot Plaza https://www.gregwilsonphoto.com/blog/2017/3/architect-gary-hoyts-inspired-design-of-patriot-plaza Designed by Hoyt Architects Patriot Plaza within Sarasota National Cemetery is an 85,000 sq ft assembly space. The design emphasizes transparency and open sight lines. Sweeping curvilinear canopies of translucent glass rise 50 ft and protect the 2800 seat amphitheater and 60 foot rostrum. Three entrances feed into circulation paths along which art installations tell stories in a palette of white stone, colorful mosaics and bronze. Small spaces along the paths allow visitors to step off to contemplate the artful design. Landscape transitions from outer, park-like green space to structured, paved inner core.  Our nation's national cemeteries are the final resting places for men and women who served our country with unmatched valor.

Luxury Retirement Communities Coast to Coast https://www.gregwilsonphoto.com/blog/2017/1/luxury-retirement-communities-coast-to-coast With the collapse of the economy in 2007 our primary clients went into bankruptcy and finally most of them went completely out of business.  For over 20 years we had been crisscrossing the states photographing model homes for national builders.  We were forced to reinvent ourselves and looked to the retirement market as an average of 10,000 people reach retirement age per day.  That decision proved to be a good one as we have been assigned to photograph nearly 100 communities across the US.  More and more communities are marketing themselves as Retirement Resorts and adding amenities to attract people who are still healthy and active.  We have an entire portfolio devoted to Retirement Communities.  Below is just a sampling of some of those communities from Coast to Coast.

Architect Carl Abbott Design https://www.gregwilsonphoto.com/blog/2016/6/architect-carl-abbott-design The Dolphin House Designed by the Iconic Architect Carl Abbott located on beautiful Siesta Key in Sarasota Florida.  Carl Abbott is an original practitioner of the Sarasota School of Architecture. Over the four decades of his Sarasota practice, Abbott has adapted the thinking behind Frank Lloyd Wright’s organic architecture to designs appropriate to the subtropics.  After studying under Paul Rudolph at Yale University, Abbott received his master’s degree in architecture in 1962. After beginning his practice in Hawaii, he went on to work with I.M. Pei in New York City, and was an original member of TEAM4 in London with his Yale classmates, Richard Rogers and Norman Foster. In the 1960s, Abbott opened his firm in Sarasota, where he soon became a recognized exponent of the Sarasota School of Architecture.

Photographer's Eclectic Home https://www.gregwilsonphoto.com/blog/2012/8/photographers-eclectic-home This assignment was to photograph my friend Steven Katzman's home for a magazine article.  Steven is a self-taught photographer who has combined, over the years his long-time interest in political science with his photographic journey. Although he does not work from anyone’s theories on the appropriate direction for contemporary art, most of his photographs exemplify the post modernist notion that to be relevant to the final quarter of the 20th century, art needs to be political in nature. Steven is, however, an artist, not a propagandist. Consequently, his images are not overtly political: the viewer must take time to think about each photograph to arrive at its ultimate message.  The home is full of not only Stevens work but other significant artists as well.

Michael Walker & Associates was the builder given the responsibility of bringing this vision to life. Walker's attention to the smallest details is evident throughout the homes. Even the reveals around every door and window are absolutely parallel without exception. The home is contemporary in design but materials and furnishings create a warmth and lived in atmosphere rarely found in modern architecture.

Princeton, New Jersey Retirement Lifestyle https://www.gregwilsonphoto.com/blog/2012/8/princeton-new-jersey-retirement-lifestyle Springpoint has established the retirement community of Stonebridge at Montgomery in close proximity to Princeton University.  The wonderful result has resulted in Princeton professors giving guest lectures on occasion and the Pro Musica chorus rehearsing performances in their large auditorium.  That's on top of the beautifully tended grounds and wooded trails the residents enjoy.  An enviable residence for anyone, at any age!

Vero Beach Retirement Lifestyle https://www.gregwilsonphoto.com/blog/2012/8/vero-beach-retirement-lifestyle ACTS Retirement-Life Communities, the parent company of Indian River Estates has had us photograph all 23 of their Retirement Communities in 8 states.  This was a return engagement to document the grand opening of the continuing care facility on the campus of Indian River West.  Refined Florida retirement lifestyle on a large 100-acre site, expertly landscaped campus, shared with sister community Indian River Estates East. Located just 10 miles from the beach, and with all of Vero Beach’s cultural and entertainment attractions nearby.  The WillowBrooke Court addition follows a nationwide movement to make senior care more homelike, where residents live in “households” and share a kitchen, dining room and living room. Other features include flexible schedules and activities, enhanced dining options, as well as larger living spaces and activity areas that promote socialization.

Residents at Indian River Estates donated more than $3 million toward the expansion at the continuing care retirement community that features a new model of senior care widely lauded within the healthcare industry for its person-centered service delivery and architectural design.  A very cool design that feels more like a 5 star hotel than a retirement community.

Private Island Retreat https://www.gregwilsonphoto.com/blog/2012/8/private-island-retreat The island is sited in Pine Island Sound, where several estuaries converge and create exceptional boating and fishing.  The island’s central feature is the original manor house, a luxurious Spanish-style villa built in the mid-1920s for well-known inventor Charles Burgess and masterfully restored and expanded by its current owner. The well-appointed rooms of this estate have been carefully planned to capture the island’s best views and gentle sea breezes, while providing all of today’s modern conveniences. The estate is designed to accommodate guests comfortably with a self-contained three bedroom guest wing, separated by an open breezeway and accessed by a private entrance.  100+ acres of private island prized for its location, coveted for its privacy.  Luxurious Spanish-style villa built in the 1920's & lovingly restored.  Private guest quarters.  Adjacent Old-Florida Village featuring caretaker's cottage, additional guest retreat, gracious pool and pavilion, informal history museum and lushly landscaped terraces.  Numerous water features including cascading waterfall, koi pond, and lagoon.  Tropical coquina-shelled road encircling the island leading to a tennis court and connecting to a nature trail

Palm Island Innovation https://www.gregwilsonphoto.com/blog/2012/8/palm-island-innovation Our client for this interesting project was David Young a brilliant landscape architect.  The architect was Thomas Denzinger of Charleston, SC.  Set in a maritime forest of a coastal barrier island the site is a small peninsula surrounded on three sides by tidal wetlands.  The home has expansive views of the Gulf of Mexico and a private beach.  The second story pool has glass bottom windows that illuminate the walk through ground floor to the beach.  Interesting use of layers and textures.

Opulent Lifestyle on Siesta Key https://www.gregwilsonphoto.com/blog/2012/8/opulent-lifestyle-on-siesta-key It's pretty rare that we shoot for a Realtor but this one was an exception.  Located on a beach front property on the North end of Siesta Key this home was one of the most opulently decorated properties we've documented in Sarasota.  From the muraled ceilings to the hot tub on the roof this one was over the top.

Lido Key Modern Masterwork https://www.gregwilsonphoto.com/blog/2012/4/lido-key-modern-masterpiece This month's assignment from Style Magazine was to document Architect Don Chapell's personal dream home.  Although Chapell did not live to see the completion of the home it was finished to his original specs and is a masterpiece of design and function.  Even the photos don't do it justice.

Casey Key Modern Architecture https://www.gregwilsonphoto.com/blog/2012/4/casey-key-modern-architecture This assignment was on behalf of Custom Builder Michael Walker and Architect Guy Peterson.  Built on the north end of Casey Key the home is Functional Sculpture in every facet.  Peterson's inventive methods take full advantage of the gulf views on the west and the preserved old oak trees on the east.  Coupled with Walker's craftsmanship and incredible attention to even the smallest detail made it a pleasure to document this important residence.

Marathon Key Resort https://www.gregwilsonphoto.com/blog/2012/3/marathon-key-resort This month we were given the assignment to update one of Singh Properties websites with new photos of the now mature landscaping and redesigned accommodations. In addition to Tranquility Bay's secluded private beach, it has a large lushly landscaped lagoon style swimming pool and a second adults only pool surrounded by towering palms. Quiet and peaceful was the feeling throughout the resort.

Very cool modern design courtesy of architect Guy Peterson and landscape architect David Young.
