Located in the center of Pensacola, Florida’s Seville Historic District, this urban infill project exemplifies the capacity for a historic district’s codified architectural regulations to be respected while simultaneously allowing for the interpretation of historic materials and incorporation of historic, enduring proportions.
The clients sought a change of lifestyle from their 25+ year occupancy of a vehicular dependent Florida panhandle home, nestled in a coastal dune and oak hammock environment, to an urban, walkable, mixed-use neighborhood. This inquiry offered the opportunity for the architect to introduce his visiting guests to a conceptual design on land owned by the architect – the transformation of a barren asphalt parking lot, including a demolition of a 1974 single story building to a two phase, two building project surrounded by a tree-lined auto court.
