Nokomis Beach Pavilion

Jack West, 1954

100 Casey Key Road, Casey Key
The Nokomis Beach Pavilion, designed by architect Jack West, was built in 1954 to serve as Sarasota County’s first beach pavilion. The pavilion and associated plaza provide a classic example of the minimalist forms associated with mid-century modem architecture.The complex consists of an open-air pavilion to the south connected with a covered walkway to a building on the north containing restrooms, changing rooms, and showers. In addition, the site included an expansive paved plaza with a planting area and fountain. The pavilion originally contained murals by Hilton Leech painted on plywood, but these only lasted five years. The entire structure was completely renovated in 2010 (without murals).
FUN FACT: This was Jack West’s first project as a solo architect in 1954 and also his last because he undertook the renovations just before his death.

Renovation and Addition by Sweet-Sparkman Architects, 2016

948 Beach Road, Siesta Key
The Siesta Key Beach Pavilion, designed by architect Edward “Tim” Siebert, was dedicated in 1960. Using a budget of only $50,000, the structure is notable for its use of low-maintenance materials appropriate to its harsh marine environment such as reinforced concrete and concrete block. According to an article in the August 1963 issue of Architectural Record, the main frame of pavilion was constructed with columns pre-cast on site, hoisted into position, and then connected with beams poured in place. The roof is composed of pre-cast and pre-stressed double “T” joists, alternately off-set to create an exciting roofline. The structure was renovated in 2016 and complemented with a contemporary addition by Sweet-Sparkman Architects.
