The Gulf frontage of the properties are convenient to walk to St. Armands Circle for some of the finest dining & shopping the world has to offer -- and downtown Sarasota's cultural buffet is only moments away! Lido Shores has a unique place in architectural history. Beginning in the early 1940s, a group of local architects embraced the visions of Ralph Twitchell and Paul Rudolph to create a regional modernism that came to be known as The Sarasota School of Architecture. Their designs incorporated new and native materials such as cypress, plate glass and terrazzo floors, as well as structures such as roof overhangs, louvered walls and shutters to provide ventilation in the subtropical Sarasota climate. Tim Seibert, Gene Leedy, Carl Abbott and Jack West are leading names of this regional style. In the early 1950s, the progressive developer Philip Hiss hired Paul Rudolph to design a colony of such climate-sensitive modernism creating Lido Shores. The neighborhood still contains several very important examples of the original Sarasota School of Architecture.

Today, Lido Shores continues to have some of the most architecturally significant homes in Southwest Florida designed by well recognized and talented current architects such as Jonathan Parks and Guy Peterson in a modernist style, as well as Clifford Scholz with his palladium designs.
