Edward “Tim” Seibert

Edward J. “Tim” Seibert (b.1927 – d. 2018) was born in Seattle, Washington, and his family moved to Sarasota in 1942. After studying art at Stanford University between 1947-1950, Seibert then attended the University of Florida, receiving a B. Arch. degree in 1953.
He opened his own office in Sarasota in 1955, which – as “Seibert Architects” – still functions today. Seibert designed many award-winning private residences and public buildings in the Sarasota and Southwest Florida area, including The Hiss Studio on Lido Shores (1952), DeVries/Craig Residence (1955), Siesta Key Beach Pavilion (1958), Gulfstream Towers (1960), Shain Residence (1966), the Cooney Residence (1967), Bayport Beach and Tennis Club on Longboat Key (1980) and Bay Plaza Condominiums (1982). Seibert was the focus of the SAF’s SarasotaMOD Weekend, 2017.

FUN FACT: Seibert designed and constructed a house (1970) on Manasota Key for Dan Rowan of “Laugh-In” fame. Siebert was also an avid boater and worked as a naval architect.
