SOLD: Carl Abbott's Casa del Cielo called a masterpiece by Paul Rudolph

Comment from the first award given to Casa del Cielo: "A 'masterpiece' ....raised horizontal planes, which interpenetrate one with the other - all above ground in a tropical climate - the balancing of solids and voids and the flow of space horizontally and vertically are handled in a remarkable way....." --- Paul Rudolph, Architectural Awards Juror This remarkable, architecturally-significant, beachfront property is situated along more than 100 feet of coveted, sugar white sand on world famous Siesta Key. Two contemporary, Sarasota School of Architecture structures designed by Carl Abbott FAIA - a main house pavilion known as Casa del Cielo and a gatehouse - gracefully reside together along with a charming beach bungalow called the Palmer Beach House. The wooded, sanctuary-like setting is a perfect compliment to the floating terraces, expansive walls of glass and light-filled spaces of the Abbott buildings. WINNER OF AIA TEST OF TIME AWARD.
