Healy Guest House

1950 - Ralph Twitchell and Paul Rudolph

another icon of the Sarasota School of Architecture movement, the Healy Guest House titled Cocoon House, illustrates the concepts of Sarasota Modern.

An experimentation with new building materials, allowed for the striking curved roof. A radical design feature, the home features Jalousie walls that could open to let in breezes.

Perched on the waters edge at Bayou Louise on Siesta Key, the Cocoon House was designed to maximize water views and give the impression it's nearly floating over the water. With so many innovative concepts this house gained world-wide recognition and drew attention to both the architects and the overall design movement .
