Nokomis Beach, Casey Key

October 29, 2008

The Nokomis Beach Pavilion which was originally built in 1954 on Casey Key, is a great example of the Sarasota school of architecture.  The building was designed by Jack West.  The historic structure has recently undergone a complete remodeling and has been reopened to the public this month.  The Sarasota School of Architecture’s early designs draw inspiration from the European movement of International architecture prior to the beginning of World War II.  Early adaptors of this new design philosophy here in Sarasota were Ralph Twitchell and Paul Rudolph.  This modernist movement was very popular in Sarasota from the 1940s to the 1960s.  The designs are characterized by a strong interplay of interior and exterior spaces.

Casey Key is home to many of modern styled homes.  Currently there are 45 homes for sale on on Casey Key ranging from $999,000 to $18,500,000.
