GOLD and JUDGES' VISION Whole House More Than $700,000 Michael K. Walker and Associates, Sarasota, Fla., michaelkwalker.com Project name: Ohana Location: Longboat Key, Fla. Square footage: 9,300 under air Cost: $10 million Ohana, which is Hawaiian for "family", was designed to function as a gathering residence for a large family; the owners envisioned an architectural theme simulating an African lodge/Polynesian resort. Materials support that vision. Windows and doors are made of mahogany and clear Douglas fir; cabinetry is teak. Exterior materi- als include Sipo African mahogany and Oolite stone wall cladding. The driveway, walkways and terraces comprise Florida coral stone. All enclosed areas are fully conditioned spaces using a geothermal heating and cooling system that includes an energy monitoring and control system. The geothermal system also supports a pool and spa heating system and 14 individual HVAC equipment zones with a constant hold temperature of 74 F. Operation costs less than $1,000 per month. The existing home was a 1950s pink stucco beachfront house that didn't conform to local codes. The original structure required multiple permitting efforts while the addition was designed to meet requirements for buildings seaward of the State Coastal Construction Line. Local permitting required the buildings be joined as one. Rebuilding the house within the existing footprint allowed for an exemption to the state requirements while the addition met all of the state and local requirements.
