The Casey Key Guest House was designed by Florida-based TOTeMS Architecture to resemble the shape of a swinging hammock, but the design materials and interior finishes are also reminiscent of the peacefulness and relaxation that is associated with swinging away in a hammock. The client requested a design that was “a house in the trees” including a one bedroom, bath, living area and kitchenette. The natural wood finishes remind the guest of the outdoors – a location where most hammocks are located – and the wrap-around balcony that affords beautiful views of all that mother nature has to offer support this idea further. The clean, modern interior is junk and clutter-free, revealing the beautiful arching lines of the glum beams and that create a solid North wall in order to provide privacy from nearby neighbours to the North. The wrap-around windows also help invite the outdoors in, providing the guest with a nice view of outside from most rooms in the house. The guest house is located on the Casey Key property on a barrier island along Sarasota Bay.
