Until now, about the only
way you could reduce the heat of
the sun was with windows that
also reduced the light of the sun.
That made for buildings that
looked like mirrors on the outside,
and a bit like caves from the inside.
So we developed Andersen"
High-Performance Sun windows.
They block the sun's heat 2V2
times better than ordinary
single-pane windows, yet they
let m twice as much light as
mirror-like reflective windows.
Talk to the right people
and learn the fascinating story
Andersen High-Performance
Sun windows are distributed by
Florida Huttig Sash & Door
Company andare available from
lumber and building material
dealers. Check the Yellow Pages

The first annual FA/AIA Design Conference was a success!
The reason for its success was, I think, simply that we got back to basics. All that
was discussed was architecture, literally, and style, specifically. There were no
seminars dealing with office practice aids, fee collection, insurance or the like. It
was rather like going back to school for three days and rehearing some of those lec-
tures that might have been boring when you were nineteen, but are a refreshing
change once you've been out in the world dealing with the issues of keeping an office
I learned something very interesting at the conference. I learned that style is a
very personal thing to architects even when you get into the area of archaic or
historic styles. During the panel discussion which was concerned with classical
architecture, one front row architect's ire was quite visible as he repeatedly stated
that the fact that buildings were being designed in the classical style in 1986 "didn't
make it right." Others in the audience praised a return to basics.
I also learned that architects both love and hate labels Post-Modernism seem-
ing to be the label they reject most. Even if they are Post-Modernists, and I think
every architect working today is, they don't seem to care for the label or maybe the
company. Or maybe wearing any label of style seems anti-original or anti-creative.
I don't think that's so, particularly under an umbrella as big as PM. One thing that
came out of the meeting was the general agreement that PM was not a style, but a
broad all-encompassing catch-all for many substyles from historicism to high-tech.
It represents a period of time more than anything else.
No one at the meeting was ambivalent about style. As the attendees passed
through seminars and panel discussions dealing with Modernism, PM, Classicism
and Vernacular, I noticed definite feelings of prejudice beginning to surface. There
were denials voiced, influences acknowledged as well as denied, and the work of
renowned architects was much discussed, praised, maligned and rediscussed.
The meeting was an open forum for sharing ideas. It was good to get back to the
basics and discuss the real reason we're all here ... to design buildings.





Opa-Locka Plans to

"Rebuild the Dream"

The City of Opa-Locka in Dade
County has teamed up with the
University of Florida graduate
students in Architectural Preser-
vation to explore ideas for the
economic development of its main
street, Opa-Locka Boulevard,
and to visualize adaptive use con-
cepts for the City's old 1926 ho-
tel, the Hurt Building. The Opa-
Locka Community Development
Corporation funded this design
research project through the
Research and Education Center
for Architectural Preservation
Opa-Locka was created in the
20's by developer-aviator Glenn
Curtiss on an Arabian Nights
theme. Unfortunately, the first
wave of the great depression
smashed the real estate boom in
South Florida before Curtiss re-
alized his dream and Opa-Locka
never developed fully into the
ideal community he envisioned.
The student-preservationists
stepped in to help conceptualize
ways to "Rebuild the Dream,"
providing birds-eye sketches of
a restored and revitalized Opa-
Locka Boulevard. In addition,
proposals for rehabilitation of
the Hurt Building as a restau-
rant/cafe and rental office facility
were prepared by the students.
The three students who pre-
sented their prize-winning work
were Sharon Behan, Daniel Hous-
ton and James Ferguson. Faculty
advisors were Ronald Haase,
Herschel Shepard and Susan
Tate. Professor F. Blair Reeves
is Director of RECAP and of the
Preservation program at the Uni-
versity of Florida.

Newman Medal

Awarded for

Acoustics Research

C. E. Rozear, a graduate stu-
Jdent at the University of Flor-
ida, Department of Architec-
ture, was awarded the Robert
Bradford Newman Medal to rec-
ognize merit in architectural
Rozear completed his Master
of Architecture thesis in Decem-
ber, 1985. In an attempt to de-
termine if architects can get in-
formation about the acoustical
quality of a space from tests in
small scale models, he built a 1/10
full size model of an auditorium
and compared acoustical mea-
surements taken in the model of
the auditorium to measurements
taken in the full-size room. The
model is the size of a one car
garage and was painstakingly
crafted by Rozear. Similarly
models can be built while a space
is being designed to help insure
that it will have adequate acous-
tics after it is built.
Established this year, the
Robert Bradford Newman
Award is a national award giv-
en in memory of Robert New-
man who was a founding partner
of Bolt, Beranek and Newman,
a large acoustical consulting
firm. He spent many years teach-
ing architectural acoustics at
the School of Architecture and

Planning at MIT, and the Grad-
uate School of Design at Har-
vard. It will be given at several
schools which have on-going
programs in architectural acous-
tics to students who have dem-
onstrated excellence in the
The University of Florida is
one of only a few of the 110
schools of architecture that of-
fers the opportunity for signifi-
cant master's level research to
its students in architectural
acoustics in a program developed
by Professor Emeritus Bertram
Y. Kinzey, Jr. Rozear's thesis
committee chairman, Associate
Professor Gary W. Siebein, also
heads the graduate Environ-
mental Technologies option for
the Department of Architecture.
Both he and Rozear will travel
to Toronto this summer where
Rozear's work was accepted for
publication and presentation at
the 12th International Congress
on Acoustics.

New Dean at

UF College of


Sr. Anthony J. Cantanese has
been appointed Dean of the
College of Architecture at the
University of Florida. He will
assume his new position on Au-
gust 1, 1986.

Dr. Cantanese has a BA in City
and Regional Planning from Rut-
gers, a Master of Urban Planning
from New York University and
in 1969, he received a Ph.D. in
Urban and Regional Planning
from the University of Wiscon-
sin-Madison. For several years
he has served as director of the
Center for Planning and Devel-
opment at the Georgia Institute
of Technology. His previous po-
sitions include that of Provost at
Pratt Institute and Dean of the
School of Architecture and Ur-
ban and Regional Planning at the
University of Wisconsin-Madison.

1986, issue of Florida Architect

stated with apologies to the indi-

Dear Editor:

As the official caretaker of the
Uniform Building Code in Chap-
ter 6A-2, State Board of Educa-
tion Rules, I feel compelled to
respond to the article written by
Peter Gottschalk concerning
Vivian Gaither Senior High
School, Tampa, featured in the
March/April 1986 issue.
First, I would like to state that
Gaither High School is a very
impressive educational institu-
tion which adequately fulfills its
educational role and is an out-
standing architectural concept.
Obviously the Hillsborough
County School Board agrees and
selected the same plan for South
Brandon High School.
Although I am aware that
codes present some design re-
straints, the intentions are to
keep these restraints to a mini-
mum when formulating the
codes. The statements that the
codes on natural ventilation and
allocation of circulation space
are "significantly and severely
restrictive" are disturbing. It is
true the natural ventilation re-
quirement significantly altered
the configuration of new schools

from the totally enclosed, under-
one-roof concept to the open
campus plan. But this should be
considered a design in a differ-
ent direction, rather than sig-
nificant restraint. Also, the re-
sulting open configurations are
proving to be more acceptable
to designers and users.
In regard to the "restraint
on circulation space" (i.e., 22
percent for elementary schools
and 30 percent for secondary
schools), these formulas have
been established for many years
and although the allowable per-
centage appears low, most new
schools are designed within
these restraints and are operat-
ing successfully. These formulas
are intended to enforce good
planning and for the designer to
use the tax dollars on educational
facilities and not on a vast array
of corridors. Instead of regard-
ing them as a severe design re-
striction, they should be consid-
ered as another challenge to the

Pappas to Assume

Office in '87

Ted Pappas, FAIA, was elected
First Vice President/Presi-
dent-elect of the American Insti-
tute of Architects on the first
ballot from a field of three candi-
dates at the AIA's 118th national
convention in San Antonio. He
will assume office in December
1986, and will become the AIA
President in 1987.
Pappas, 52, served as a Na-
tional Vice President of the AIA
and Chairman of its Practice
Commission in 1985. He has also
been Chairman of the AIA Eco-
nomics and Compensation Task
Group and the Florida Carribean
Region's representative to the
AIA Board of Directors. As com-
missioner to the AIA Technical
Committee, he helped generate
the creation of Architectural
Technology magazine.
Also at the national level,
Pappas served on the 1983 Long
Range Planning Committee, the
Information Management Com-
mittee and the Energy and Media
Advisory Committees.

Ted Pappas, FAIA, has been
President of both the Florida
Association/AIA and the Jack-
sonville Chapter/AIA. In 1982
he was the recipient of the FA/
AIA's "Anthony L. Pullara Me-
morial Award" for outstanding
service to the profession and two
years later he received the asso-
ciation's Gold Medal.
Pappas, who has received nu-
merous state and local awards,
chaired the Capital Center Plan-
ning Commission for 11 years.
The Jacksonville architect/civic
leader is President of the 14-
member firm, Pappas Associates
Architects, Inc., which designs
commercial, institutional, edu-
cational and housing facilities.
He graduated in 1952 from
Robert E. Lee High School in
Jacksonville and went on to earn
his Bachelor of Architecture de-
gree from Clemson University
in 1958. Pappas is a licensed ar-
chitect in Florida, South Caro-
lina and Georgia.

Salem LaHood, AIA, of Gee &
Jenson Engineers, Architects,
Planners, Inc., was the winner of
the "Design A Tower Competition"
at the FA/AIA Spring Design Con-
ference at Howey-in-the-Hills.
Described as a "not-too-serious
competition," the goal was to design
a tower as the focal point of the
Mission Inn, the facility where the
meeting was held. The winner was
awarded a cash prize at a Brunch
on May 18. While this competition
was nothing like the Chicago
Tribune Tower Competition, a good
time was had by all.

The Offices of
Todd Bryant Rose
& Associates
Winter Haven, Florida

Architecture: Todd Bryant Rose
& Associates
Interior Design: Todd Bryant
Rose & Associates
Interior Planting: Lake Region
Plantscapes, Inc.
Owner: Todd Bryant Rose,

When it became apparent their
lease would not be renewed,
the architectural firm of Todd
Bryant Rose & Associates be-
gan looking for a permanent of-
fice. Restoration had become a
specialty of the firm, and in fact,
represented fifty percent of
their current work. An affinity
for old buildings and a commit-
ment to downtown Winter Ha-
ven led them to choose a 65-
year-old building which faces
Central Park. At the time of
purchase, the park was owned
by the Seaboard Coastline Rail-
road and its future was uncer-
tain. The firm took the risk that
the citizens of Winter Haven
would make every effort to pre-
serve it and bought the 5,000 s.f.
building with thirty feet of
storefront facing the park.
Since the 1920's, the first floor
of the building the Rose firm
purchased has been used as a
hardware store. The second
floor was first a hotel, later
apartments and finally, storage
for the store beneath.
The architects wanted to re-
create a sense of the original
pattern in the storefront and at
the same time provide a more
gracious entry to their second
floor offices. With the intention
of retaining the first floor retail
tenant, a new wooden bay win-
dow replaced the storefront and
provided a display area. During
construction, a cast iron column
that marked the original second
floor entry was discovered and
the design of the bay window

-iH f~~



was modified to accommodate
and highlight it. The original
wood canopy over the sidewalk
was rebuilt with two skylights
which punctuate the ceiling at
the entries, and a bracketed
cornice was added to cover a se-
verely damaged parapet wall.
Client participation in proj-
ects prompted an early decision
not to relegate work areas to a
back room. Once upstairs, the
entire space is revealed to visi-
tors. Initially, the undulating
walls, while defining the studio
spaces, also screen the staff from
view. However, the curve of the
reception desk invites clients
further into the office, thereby
bringing staff into view. Chang-
ing floor materials and ceiling
planes are the only subtle differ-
entiations between public and
private areas. A bulkhead,
edged with crown molding, lends
elegance to the space and helps
to separate the ceiling in the
public areas from that in the
studio. Studio ceiling is metal
louvered fin which screens the
sound system speakers, lighting
and HVAC diffusers from view
while admitting natural light
from the skylights. The floor ma-
terials change from carpet to
vinyl tile for ease of maintenance
in the studio. The exposed brick
"party wall" along one side of the
studio ties the spaces together
and supports bookcases with
concealed lighting and a contin-
uous worktop. The production
area is behind the studio area
and is particularly important

since the firm has been utilizing
drafting for five years.
When the Rose firm purchased
the building, the second floor
was dominated by the glare from
two windows. A load bearing
wall divided the upper space
into two halves. This wall was re-
moved and replaced with posts
and beams. To further emphasize
the importance of unrestricted
dialog between the client and all
members of the firm, the confer-
ence room was introduced as the
central focus of the space. It fea-
tures a large north-facing roof
monitor which bathes the central
part of the office in natural light
and balances the light from the
west facing windows. This light
is shared with adjacent spaces
through French doors and tran-
soms. In addition to the day-
lighting provided by the roof
monitor and windows, natural
light is also introduced through
skylights over the studio spaces.
They are small and located at the
top of deep shafts to reduce di-
rect sunlight and heat gain.
These shafts are splayed at the
bottom to evenly distribute the
light over the louvered ceiling
through which it filters down to
the studio.
The firm's depth of experience
in renovation has led to a philos-
ophy which includes assembling
a variety of materials in an eclec-
tic manner. In their own office,
traditional details such as crown
moldings and picture moldings

are combined in unusual configu-
rations with new materials such
as the steel louvered ceiling. The
attention to detail includes such
accents as the brass stair rods
and the patterns in the ceiling
and the floor. The required
joints in the ceiling fins are
given a fractured pattern. The
vinyl tile also becomes part of
the collage by being punctuated
with changes in pattern and
color. The different surfaces and
picture moldings provide for the
final layer of detail, display of
the firm's collection of books, art
and recent works. These are dis-
tributed throughout the space
and invite client participation.

The design of St. Thomas More
began with parishioners tak-
ing an active part in the process.
They met in open forum to dis-
cuss the program and the spirit
of the new church. Since the
design of the building was to
be based on the New Liturgy,
parishioners felt that express-
ing this was more important
than copying a traditional church
form. They wanted a sense of hu-
man scale, calmness, welcome,
strength, a sense of drama, and
most of all a sense of the sanc-
tuary being a very special place.
They did not want a monstrous
monument that screamed, "I'm
a church."
Architect Abbott worked
closely with the priest, a litur-
gical consultant and the building
committee in setting the pro-
gram, developing the relation-
ship of the components within
the complex and interpreting
the New Liturgy. The form of
the building grew directly out of
these studies. It is oriented to
people, not to the automobile.

20 FLORIDA ARCHITECT July/August 1986

Since different liturgical ser-
vices offer varied experiences
from Christmas and Easter to
weddings and funerals, the seat-
ing is flexible and usually thea-
tre-style. The plan of the church
was originally to be a square,
non-directional form that al-
lowed the greatest flexibility.
As the design developed, how-
ever, its form became more hu-
mane and more romantic. The
Reserved Eucharist is the domi-
nant symbol and it is located on
axis to the main entry in a cleres-
tory-lit tall space. At the entry,
a long horizontal masonry wall
and pool act as an "anchor" re-
placing the traditional steeple
"anchor." The 240-foot reflecting
pool leads to the main space
where it culminates in a baptis-
mal font. Throughout the build-
ing, traditional church forms are
evoked; the curved apse forms,
cloistered gardens, strong inter-
nal axis and the treatment of

The building complex was sited
after studies, including aerial
photos, were used to determine
the least treed area for parking.
The form of the building was af-
fected by the heavy tree cover in
the immediate area, and through-
out the site, worshipers are en-
couraged to enjoy the beauty of
the land and the trees.
To properly understand St.
Thomas More, says the architect,
a person must attend Mass and
experience the wooded site, the
pageantry of the ceremony, the
movement of the clergy and the
congregation and the play of
light. All these elements together
make the design a successful one
which has earned Abbott the
1985 Design Award for Outstand-
ing Concrete Structures in Flor-
ida and the Design Award of
Excellence from the Gulf Coast
Chapter of the AIA.

Re-thinking the Florida landscape

Until recently, landscaping
was considered decorative
and was added at the end of
a project to highlight entrances
to buildings or to screen an un-
sightly dumpster. New attitudes
toward the humanizing of build-
ings in harmony with existing
site conditions, as well as tighter
governmental controls of site
development procedures in-
creasingly involve the landscape
architect as a member of the de-
velopment team. More competi-
tion among developers demands
projects which are readily ac-
ceptable by the user to reduce
carrying time and costs, and
more and more, developments
are including landscaping and
site amenities as a major feature
in architectural successes.
From overall themes for large
mixed-use communities involv-
ing infrastructure landscaping
such as lakes, boulevards, park
systems and entrance state-
ments to urban plazas, atriums,
pedestrian spaces, water fea-
tures and street furniture, land-
scape architects are adding
technical and aesthetic insight
to the design team.
In rapidly growing Central
Florida, municipal regulations
and market demands have cre-
ated the opportunity for land-
scape architects to play a
particularly important role in
establishing a new landscape
aesthetic. Changing weather
patterns and unusually low
temperatures in the area have
also required landscape archi-
tects to become more creative
in their plant selections. New
building projects are now re-
flecting this fine-tuning of plant
materials with the "tropical"
look being achieved with more
cold-tolerant plants. Also, native
plants are being used more fre-
quently because of established
durability and their ability to ac-
cept wet-dry and hot-cold sea-
sonal change more effectively.

The continuing and increasing
need for cold and drought-hardy
plants has impacted the land-
scape nursery industry. Native
woody plant materials are usu-
ally slower growing and can be
more expensive when large ma-
terials are desirable. More and
more nurseries are specializing
in natives, however, and sup-
plies will be increasing which
should make the prices of mater-
ials more competitive. Many na-
tive plants such as oaks, pines
and wax myrtles are already
used by landscape architects
and are readily available. Natu-
ralized species of plants which
will easily adapt to Central Flor-
ida conditions are becoming
more available.
Changes in municipal ordi-
nances requiring the preserva-
tion of mature trees as well as
the retention of water on site,
have also had an effect on overall
landscape aesthetics. Well es-
tablished native vegetation pre-
served in a sensitive manner
immediately creates a "mature"
look and serves the dual purpose
of enhancing the building project
in the market place and reducing
plant material and maintenance
costs. Waterscapes, which add
to the ambience of the workplace
or home, can also be creatively
incorporated into site-building
The involvement of a landscape
architect as part of the design
team from the inception of the
project is necessary to achieve a
cohesive aesthetic. This allows
an architectural theme to be car-
ried through to the site ameni-
ties and ensures a harmonious
relationship of building and site
and the improved marketability
of the project.

Delaney 500 was the first major office condominium project in the
historic Cherokee district of downtown Orlando and it has received local
recognition for preservation of the site and architectural sensitivity to
the neighborhood.
After a house dating from 1933 was moved from the site and restored
elsewhere, the development team had to work closely with local historic
preservation groups in planning the new office condominium constructed
on the historic site. Since the new building is located in an historic district,
strict design controls werefollowed so the structure would be compatible
with neighboring buildings.
A century old live oak was preserved on the site and landscape architects
used a design approach that blends contemporary strong groundforms, such
as sweeping beds of azaleas, with the traditional theme of the building.
Existing camphor trees were saved and act as a screen on one side of the
parking garage. Palms, oaks and river birch trees were added to screen the
other side and river birch, which are hardy in central Florida, were also
used as architectural accents near the large, east-facing windows. Because
birch is deciduous, it allows winter sun to penetrate while providing valu-
able shade from severe summer sun. Flowering crepe myrtles were added
in key places for dramatic summer color.

Seabrook apartment complex is an example of site development tech-
niques enhancing the architectural style and marketability of the project.
Water retention on site was incorporated as existing waterscapes. Apart-
ment living areas open onto the waterscapes which meander throughout the
project. Architectural walls are majorfeatures which reduce the require-
ment for massive planting areas, and covered balconies and patios reduce
the need for large shade trees. A reduced plant pallet of cold tolerant plants,
including native sabal palms used in abundance with wax myrtles and
other color accents, have successfully survived two winters since being
installed. Buyer acceptance was evident when 80% of the total 248 units
were rented only four months after project completion.

extensive network of parks, nature preserves and lakes, and most of the
existing cypress on the site was preserved, affording the new development a
mature look. The 4,000-acre site has areas which will be clearedforfuture
.development of roads and lakes. Part of the program is to relocate trees
which have to be removed from these areas to reduce the costs of final
landscaping. Wax myrtles, various oak types, red maples, pines, holly
trees and bay trees, numbering in the hundreds and all Florida natives,
have already been relocated to the roadsides, screen areas, and the golf

Mayfair in the Grove
Mayfair House Hotel
Coconut Grove, Florida

Architects: Treister & Cantillo
Design Team: Kenneth Treister,
AIA, Antonio Cantillo, Charles
General Contractor: Edward J.
DeBartolo Corp.
Engineers: H. J. Ross &
Owners: Kenneth Treister,
Edward J. DeBartolo, Joseph
A. Garfield

Before one can begin to under-
stand Mayfair in the Grove
and Mayfair Place, one has to
understand the philosophy of its
architect Kenneth Treister of
Treister & Cantillo Architects
in Coconut Grove. To call Treis-
ter a contemporary Renaissance
man would probably not be an
exaggeration. He is an architect,
developer, designer of many
things, environmentalist, archi-
tectural historian and world
traveler and lecturer. He is a
man with a strong personal phi-
losophy a creed that he be-
lieves in so firmly that it tran-
scends his architecture and has
become his hallmark. In his own
words, Treister's main premise
is the total integration of art and
architecture into society. Actu-
ally, he feels that art, architec-
ture and our social life are really
one a normal organic creation.
It is the role of the architect,
as master builder, to bring the
spirit of beauty, the spirit of cre-
ativeness, of sponteneity, of ex-
pressiveness, into the world be-
cause the architect is the only
one who's charged by his train-
ing, his intuition, his life strug-
gle, with the task of making the
world more beautiful.

Facing page: Circular drive and entry to MayfairPlace. The organicforms
seen on the exterior are reminiscent of Gaudi's art nouveau designs and can

same organic shapes are seen in the plan of Mayfair Place with its free-
form lobby, top. All photos, these pages, Dan Forer.

Treister feels that there is one
and only one common denomina-
tor which should be the focal
point of all artistic and architec-
tural design and that is man.
The design of the building or en-
vironment should relate to the
scale of man and relate to his
senses of touch, smell, feeling,
sight, emotion, how he uses a
building and how he feels about
his environment. It's not enough
to create a beautiful building,
inside and out. It is more impor-
tant to see that the building is
used. It is only through the use
of humans over an extended per-
iod of time that a building be-
comes meaningful, beautiful and
appropriate for its particular
The World of Mayfair is an un-
usual shopping mall in Coconut
Grove. It contains over one hun-
dred shops and boutiques and
restaurants lining, on three lev-
els, a plant and fountain-filled
atria which is open to the sky.
The World of Mayfair is, unques-
tionably, a unique place to shop.
But, it is more than that. It is
Phase I, of a two-part, two-block,
development in Coconut Grove
which now contains Mayfair
House, a world class hotel which
is attached to the shopping mall.
At Mayfair House, Treister
says he tried to create an inti-
mate, private, quiet and unas-
suming entrance from the street
that would immediately put ar-
riving guests at their ease. The
hotel has low ceilings, wide over-
hangs, narrow corridors and vis-
tas that are all in human scale.
The public spaces of Mayfair are
the shopping spaces and the
streets of Coconut Grove. There
are no public spaces in Mayfair
House. There is a tiny foyer, a
small reception room where ar-
riving guests can check in, an
even smaller room where guests
can check out and pay bills and a
tiny lobby bar. All of these areas
create an intimate private domain
that is totally in the scale of man.
In terms of human use,
Mayfair House was very care-
fully planned. The rooms were
planned as a totally private, se-

cure part of the hotel. They are
soundproof, invisible, private,
very secure. On the other side, is
the excitement of the World of
Mayfair which is wild, exuberant
and public. In terms of human
use, there is always a choice.
The rooms themselves were
designed as homes. Each room is
shaped differently and the decor
is different. At the same time,
the rooms are exciting, each
with its own private patio, hot
tub and mirrored bath. The value
of human emotion was dealt with
in the way colors, furnishings
and art were selected. All of
these things were chosen in an
effort to stimulate human emo-
tion. There are many different
kinds of art visible from Tiffany
glass in the lobby to oriental rugs
throughout. Original paintings,
sculpture, furniture, glass, fab-
rics, lighting were all designed
with a view toward evoking a
positive human response.
Treister says that he tried to
make Mayfair House tropical,
that he tried to copy the concept
of Caribbean hotels with their
broad overhangs, open atria and
abundance of natural landscape.
Each room at Mayfair opens onto
a private garden with a view of
Coconut Grove beyond. Lattice
was used to create the necessary
privacy on these terraces and
soon bougainvillea will com-
pletely cover the lattice. From
the street, the passerby sees the
tropical wood trellis covered
with a flowering vine and that
seems to be the exterior of the
building, rather than steel or
glass or concrete.
The last, and perhaps most
important concept, with which
Treister concerned himself as
the Mayfair's designer was the
matter of the building's higher
purpose. He hopes this building
will mature with age. He hopes it

Restoration with a twist

Robinson Residence
Tampa, Florida
Architect: The Szumlic-Withers
Group, Inc.
Project Architect: Thomas S.
Szumlic, AIA
Owner: John and Ellen Robinson
Contractor: Hamilton
Landscape Architect: Richard

W hen the owners of a 1925
bungalow first approached
Tampa architect Tom Szumlic
with the idea of adding a
screened porch, they were well
aware that their charming old
home was spatially unsuitable
for their current lifestyle. So,
instead of simply providing addi-
tional space, Szumlic also devel-
oped a sequential organization
of the floor plan that afforded
both public and private zoning
for the family zoning which
added tremendously to the
home's livability. Major changes
were made in the internal ar-
rangement of the house and
when it was decided that the
main body of the 1,700 s.f. house
would not support a fourth bed-
room and still maintain its integ-
rity, a garage and guest house
was added. The addition brought
the total square footage to
2,500 s.f.

ised the house's square

In the original house, columns
were used to denote important
areas of circulation. One column
acts as a foil by the front door
to arrest and direct movement
since the original bungalow did
not have a foyer. The ceiling was
also dropped to better define the
new surrogate foyer. In addi-
tion to the new entry sequence,
a second column was used to en-
courage movement between the
family room and living room,
which adds a touch of whimsey
to the space as well.
The former galley kitchen
was relocated to a more central
position in the house, with visual
access to the combination living
room/dining room and family
room. The placement of the kit-
chen cabinets also created an
insulating layer between the
public and private spaces.
Behind the kitchen, an angled
corridor was designed to redirect
movement back into the private
zone of the bedrooms. At the cor-
ridor's end, newly added book-
shelves create a spatial block
that requires turning the corner.
The two-car garage and guest
house addition was joined to the
main house by a screened porch
that is reminiscent of early "dog
trots," funneling breezes from
Tampa's Bayshore Boulevard
throughout the house. In design-
ing the addition, Szumlic was
benignly sympathetic to the ex-
isting form and structure of the
bungalow. For example, win-
dows that were part of the origi-
nal language of the house were
repeated in different, but com-
patible context.
The architect also introduced
some new elements such as an
arched window in the guest house
for a touch of Victorian whimsey.
The same Palladian detail that
appears on the window is re-
peated in the cutout of the guest


porch. On the main house, the
original porch railings were em-
bellished for a more regional fla-
vor and a swing was hung to add
to the sense of an inviting out-
door living space.
The landscaping was designed
to enhance the natural beauty of
the shady site without impeding
the ventilation of the house. To
accomplish that, landscape ar-
chitect Richard Davis used
dwarf shrubbery that would add
visual interest while remaining
in scale. He also included plants
not common to the Tampa Bay
area such as Japanese dwarf
maple, clerya japonica and ma-
ture boxwood.
The net result of both Davis
and Szumlic's efforts is a dwelling
that hints of its history, but en-
joys a contemporary twist. For
that reason, the Hillsborough
County City-County Planning
Commission recently presented
the project with an Award of
Excellence for restoration/

Terraced courtyards, warm

are all a part of the new Psychi-

ably to the positive, residential
The design solution was the
result of a collaborative effort
and resulted in a two-story rec-
tangular structure which envel-
ops a series of open courtyards
forming the central core. Situ-
ated on 2.52 acres, the hospital

ings which include a wooded Above: Arcade from lobby to patient rooms crosses a terraced courtyard seen in photo on facing page. Inset: Main

scaled medical office buildings.


Two major functions deter-
mined the overall massing of the
47,000 s.f. building. The admin-
istrative wing is perpendicular
to the patient wing, forming a
cortile. Between these two
wings is a 7,686 s.f. landscaped
cortillage and a similar, secon-
dary court in the patient build-
ing. Entering the Psychiatric
Center from the at-grade main
entrance are the reception area,
admitting offices, main waiting
room and gift shop. From this
point, visitors may proceed into
the administrative wing or
across the glass-covered walk-
way to the patient areas. The
skylight, which transverses
from the main lobby to the pa-
tient building, provides a visual
link between the interior and ex-
terior elements. The 60-bed
patient building forms another
rectangle around a smaller court-
yard, providing visual relief to
the occupants.
The Center provides individu-
alized psychiatric therapies
which encompass adult inpatient,
acute medical geriatric and ado-
lescent inpatient programs. The
new hospital will also provide
day hospital services and an
emergency response program.
Semi-private and private patient
rooms are located along the outer
perimeter of the facility's core.
Communal areas are at the cor-
ner of the patient wings. Exami-
nation rooms, nursing stations,
physical therapy suites, seclusion
rooms and support spaces run
along the interior wall, but sun-
light enters the main visitor's

Patients and staff had direct
input into the selection of inter-
ior colors, artwork and furni-
ture. Warm and cool pastel
shades were used throughout.
Continuity is achieved through a
repetition of finishes, furniture
and art. In keeping with the es-
tablished interior colors and the
"home away from home" envi-
ronment the designers created,

the casework of the nurses sta-
tions are peach, the examination
and lab stations are wedgewood
blue and utility areas are down-
played in light grey. Inherent in
the hospital design are the fac-
tors of functional performance,
patient safety and durability. All
exterior windows are of shatter-
proof Lexan and the artwork is
covered in plexiglass and hung
with security hangers which in-
hibit easy removal. Window
coverings have specially devel-
oped, non-metal hardware and
all blinds are cordless. Security
features are unobtrusive and
they blend into the environment
so successfully that their exis-
tence is benign.

"The social glitterari went to Palm Beach in the 30's, but

the academic, the refined, came to Lakeside."

Lakeside Inn
Mt. Dora, Florida

Architect: Burke and Bales
Preservation Specialist: Jerry
Landscape Architect: Garden
Village of Winter Park
Contractor: Horizon Builders
Owner: Management Develop-
ment, Inc.

Editor's Note: In 1985, UF Pro-
fessor of Architecture Wiley Till-
man first visited the Lakeside
Inn in Mt. Dora. He returned a
year later to find the buildings
and grounds vastly changed.
His account of those two visits
is printed here.

On February 1, 1985, I left the
Mt. Dora Arts Festival and
wandered casually to the south,
away from the business district.
The day was grey and windy and
it would soon be turning colder. I
crossed the railroad tracks beside
the old depot and then passed
through an imposing pink and
white wooden gate, an obvious
relic from the past. Beyond the
gate lay a cluster of pink build-
ings, arranged in a plan which
was open to the lake. As I stud-
ied the buildings and their de-
tails, I felt as if I were in a place
where time stood still. Then I
realized that the complex was
deserted, and had been for some
time judging from its appear-
ance. As is usually the case with
an empty building, time had ex-
acted a heavy toll. The buildings
looked neither lived in nor loved.
Retracing my steps to the gate,
I took one last look backward at
the buildings sloping down to the
water's edge. Suddenly, in the
February chill and the waning
light, I felt as empty and forlorn
as this strange place.
One year later, almost to the
day, I left the Mt. Dora Arts

Festival and walked south to-
ward what I now knew was the
Lakeside Inn. I entered the
grounds and found that a festive
air hung all about me. The Inn
and grounds were in the process
of being restored and there was
a bustle of activity. I moved
around the complex, then strolled
toward the lake through a thicket
of vines and weeds and down a
narrow path to the old boathouse,
It, too, had been pink originally,
but now the paint hung in thick
layers. This useless little struc-
ture must have been one of the
oldest on the site.
I returned to the entrance and
left the grounds, realizing how
much I enjoyed the enduring
qualities of the Inn, much as the
original guests must have. Under
the brilliant sun and the dancing
reflections from Lake Dora, the
newly painted buildings sparkled.
Best of all, old and new coexisted
within the complex without one
iota of incongruity, spanning the
years to bring the past into the
The first unit of the Lakeside
Inn was built as a guesthouse in
1893, to coincide with the coming
of the railroad to central Florida.
The close proximity of the depot
to the Inn made it a convenient
stopover for guests. In 1924, the
Inn was purchased by the Ed-
gerton family, a father and son,
who were responsible for its
eventual reputation as "one of
the few authentic inns in the
South." Charles Edgerton was a
self-taught engineer who, with
the help of a New Jersey archi-
tect, brought all the disparate
parts of the Inn into a whole. Af-
ter his father's death in 1935,
Richard Edgerton managed the
Inn until 1980.
Competition from the inter-
state and the expanding attrac-
tions in the Orlando area made
running the Inn tough going. By
late 1984, the Lakeside Inn was
still pink, but not with the bloom

of youth. It had fallen into disuse
and disrepair.
Happily, the Inn was sold to
Management Development Inc.
of Orlando. MDI didn't want to
modernize the Inn, they wanted
to restore it and provide the
guests with what the Edgertons
had given them; excellent ser-
vice, comfort, and by way of the
architecture and the site, tran-
quil beauty.
To accomplish this task of sen-
sitively returning the Inn to its
original appearance, MDI com-
missioned Architects Burke and
Bales and architectural preser-
vation specialist Jerry Mills.

F" P:'rIDA ARCHITECT July/August 1986

One of the most dynamic as-
pects of the Lakeside Inn is the
relationship of the buildings to
the site. Also dynamic are the
natural and mechanical heating
and cooling systems designed by
Charles Edgerton as well as the
delicate detailing of the wood
structures on the site. On the
minus side were the heavy pre-
cast concrete roof panels cover-
ing the walks between the two
long guest wings and the Inn
Much painstaking work was
required on both the interiors
and exteriors. Outside, the big-
gest problem was scraping back

to the original wood siding or
stucco base of the buildings.
From a careful study of the suc-
cessive layers of paint, a pre-pink
color scheme was selected. Since
the lush landscaping of the 20's
and 30's had been allowed to run
wild, a $150,000 landscaping
project was implemented. This
brought the cost of the restora-
tion to an expensive total of $5.5
million, a sum accounted for by
the current owner's attention to
details, both inside and out.

appliances know natural gas
helps homes sell faster, and when
your homes sell faster, your prof-
its get hot.
