Knowlton Residence, St. Petersburg (1955)

Clean, simple lines; steel, glass and concrete construction; a clear, direct connection between indoors and outdoors — these are the hallmarks of “tropical modern” design. The majority of modern design in Tampa Bay was residential, and a splendid example is this distinctive home created by locally prominent architect William Harvard. Built without air conditioning, the house instead features strategically placed jalousie windows and overhangs, its dramatically canted roof and window walls opening the home to light, breezes and waterfront vistas. This Snell Isle home has the feeling of a great yoga exhalation.
