Cooney House

florida, illustration — December 31, 2009


Just got back from Sarasota, and I didn’t get any good pictures!


But I did get to tour a great place, The Cooney House by Sarasota School of Architecture architect Tim Siebert, designed 1967.


I woke up the following day and decided to try to draw this up from memory, while it was still fresh!


A very interesting house! Those are floor to ceiling doors, they must be 9 feet or so in height!

  1. Glad you could attend my open house at the Cooney House. We found a renter and had a blast, with personal appearance by Tim Seibert, FAIA. Tim designed this house for his life-long friend. Your drawing is pretty close to the real thing :) The living room is larger, wider than you remember, but other than that you are pretty close! Here is a slideshow to see the house:

    HAPPY NEW YEAR and thanks for your visit!

  3. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I grew up in Venice and Sarasota and wish these communities would take more interest in historic mid century SSSA buildings. Both my jr high and high schools, (Rudolphs), were demolished to make way for new, uninspired buildings. I’ve been inside many of the older homes you took pictures of on Siesta Key and am happy to see they still exist.

  4. I was reading through some of your posts on this site and I believe this web site is very informative! Keep putting up.

  5. I’m intrigued by the “drawings” above especially since the listing on MLS says it has four bedrooms. My understanding is that what is shown as “his dressing room” and “her dressing room” are actually bedroom 3 and 4. They are only 8 ft x 11 ft which is only large enough to fit a single bed and maybe a dresser. The house has great style, but does not appear to have been upgraded in over 40 years. A good value at about $575k.
