St Pete Bay View Home Location: Saint Petersburg Pinellas Point Status: Construction 2023 Design Principal: Paul Beuckens, AIBD Contractor: McClure Contracting, Inc. Project Description: Located in the Pinellas Point area of St. Pete, the site offers impressive views of Tampa Bay and the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. The home is raised 5 feet above grade to meet FEMA requirements instead of a full story to maintain a more direct connection to the landscape. The use of patios, balconies, roof top decks and folding/sliding glass doors help reinforce the in/out connection. The main level connects to a covered patio, the second level connects to a covered balcony offering direct views of Tampa Bay and spectacular views from the roof top deck. An entry court with water feature provides a buffer to the street and another outdoor living space to enjoy nature.
