CompassHaus | Silver Award
This sleek, modern coastal home, packed with eco-wise features, is LEED Platinum
By Peter Fabris | August 24, 2017
CompassHaus, Silver Award, Green
Site: Longboat Key, Fla.
Entrant/Builder: Josh Wynne Construction
Architect: Jonathan Parks, Solstice Architects
Interior Designer: Pamela Holladay, Siebert Architects
Photographer: Ryan Gamma Photography
Size: 4,490 sf
Hard cost, excluding land: $350-$400/sf
Completion: August 2016
This LEED Platinum coastal modern home features sleek lines, cantilevered structural elements, and a rear elevation with floor-to-ceiling fenestration that provides dramatic views of the Intracoastal Waterway and adjoining bay. The white exterior and Energy Star-rated roof assembly help reduce heat gain. Many of the interior surfaces are painted white, which augments extensive daylighting.
Other green elements include a high-SEER variable-speed HVAC system, tankless water heaters, LED lights, a lighting control system, and a 10.23-kW solar array. Construction consisted of mostly locally sourced materials with high recycled content. FEMA regulations required extra height, creating great views in all directions; meanwhile, attention to craftsmanship and durability will further ensure the home will hold up to storms.

There are too many sub-contractors to list so I have tagged those who are on FB in the image.
These projects don't happen by accident. We had a great client, a beautiful design, many more talented design professionals, and many, many careful craftsman. It is nice to see the work of so many recognized.
There were some beautiful homes entered this year. We are humbled to be so well represented. Onward and upward!Read More

The 2016 International Builders’ show was held again this year in Las Vegas. Mark your calendars’, the next two years the show will be held in Orlando. The show features the latest in building products and trends. While the show features and expansive exhibit hall and educational sessions there are other parts of the show that feature showcase homes and award competitions that recognize building professionals hard work.
We are humbled to be honored this year for our projects. We put a lot of love and sweat into our projects and to be honored with awards for our work is just icing on the cake.
Best in Green (BIG) Awards was held at the IBS Live Booth in the South hall. This is the second year of a new green awards program that focuses on integration. Instead of a completely separate awards program, green and sustainable categories have been incorporated into many of NAHB’s other award programs, including the Best in American Living Awards, The Nationals, the 50+ Housing Awards, the multifamily Pillars of the Industry Awards and the Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Marketing and Home Design for systems-built homes. If you win a green or sustainable award in any of these programs, you are automatically entered to win a Best in Green Award. Best in Green categories include: 50+ Home or Community, Single-Family, Production Home, Single-Family Custom Home, Multifamily Project, Interior Project, Remodeling Project, Development, Sales and Marketing Strategy, Systems-Built Home and ICC 700 National Green Building Standard.
The top category: Single-Family Custom Home featured three Florida Builders, we won top honors!
Category Winner: Josh Wynne Construction for their Lotus on Orange Project
The Best in American Living Awards (BALA) is the nation's premier award program continually redefining design excellence for the entire residential building industry. It spotlights the most creative and innovative builders, remodelers, architects, residential and building designers, developers, land planners and interior designers in the nation. Every year, the awards program, sponsored by NAHB Design Committee, recognizes good design in single-family and multifamily homes of all types and sizes, communities, interior design, remodeling and rental developments.
Since its inception the BALA awards have been recognized throughout the industry as the premier design awards, with past associations with Better Homes and Garden and BUILDER magazines. Professional Builder again join the NAHB Design Committee as a media sponsor for the 2015 awards cycle.
As a leader in design for home and community, the BALA awards program has grown over the years to include categories in green building, senior and student housing and affordable housing.

LEED FOR HOMES: TipTopHaus / Submitted by Josh Wynne Construction
The design includes many of the Florida vernacular architectural features that make a
home built in Florida inherently more efficient.
BUSINESS OF THE YEAR: Josh Wynne Construction
Carbon neutral concepts, 100% zero-energy construction, smaller and more affordable
options for a larger demographic, some work in neighborhood re-development and
weatherization, and even some work with local government to consider smarter
planning strategies related density and growth, are all within our reach.

The Pearl is an amazing home designed without compromise. The clean lines and simple beauty inspired by South Pacific-style architecture are blended seamlessly with the local style. The home's western exposure has carefully placed windows that capture the sea breeze. Windows and doors along the eastern elevation allow the breezes to carry through the home. Day-lighting was a natural result of this effort. The subtle beauty of this home is punctuated with LEED Platinum, and FGBC Platinum certifications proving that beauty and sustainability can co-exist.
Our newest project is located in the eclectic neighborhood of Oyster Bay. John Gillespie developed Oyster Bay in the early days of Sarasota. The area is noted for large lots, mature trees and a fun mix of architectural styles. The local flavor ranges from famous Sarasota School of Architecture homes by Jack West to Mid-Century Ranches, Mediterranean Revival and Key West inspired homes. Oyster Bay was a popular neighborhood for revitalization during the recent real estate boom so there are many newer homes comfortably nestled into this older infill community.
