Lila Restaurant is situated on Main Street in downtown Sarasota. When dealing with buildings 50+ years old, it is all about unique ideas to allow for suspended mechanical and architectural components, such as the large drop above the bar top. We were able to utilize existing framing while adding only minimally to ensure this could be supported.
Lakewood Ranch, Florida
Tidewell Hospice stands as a pillar in the communities it supports. Its mission of “providing care, comfort, and compassion” relies heavily on the design of their facilities for both the sake of their residents as well as staff. WBRC Architects also wanted to provide a higher level of safety to the building occupants so the design of the facility was conducted in a manner that would allow a shelter-in-place option at even a Category 5 hurricane.
Located just north of downtown, these three buildings in the heart of Sarasota's Design District complement the area with a combined 65,000-square-foot that will serve as both living and retail.

Bible Baptist Church
Bible Baptist Church is an excellent example of harmonious form and function. The design intended to allow for an increased congregation size without building too large or over budget. The structural system is a mix of a pre-engineered metal building, surrounded by masonry bearing and steel beams and columns supporting pre-engineered steel bar joists. The pronounced porte-cochere is a favorite, with the steel tube sections sloped from column to column to allow the arches to align across the front elevation.
