PRA Sarasota Design Office

PRA Sarasota Contributing to Florida’s architectural Legacy

Where the sun shines year-round, our Sarasota Design Office always has bright ideas. Established in 2012, this multi-faceted office has hands in a myriad of project types. Wearing many hats, the Florida team redefines creativity, innovation, and what it means to bring value to clients. They are relentless in their efforts to fulfill their client’s visions and improve their community. As natural philanthropists, they are dedicated to making a positive difference either through the built environment or volunteering their time and talent to a variety of community groups such as the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce, the Manasota Black Chamber of Commerce, the Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance, the United Way Suncoast, and the Manatee Chamber of Commerce.

Florida Architecture: Vibrant and Iconic

Attuned to its nickname, The Circus City, our Sarasota Design Office is filled with diverse talents. From balancing the diverse requests during a design workshop to skillfully juggling construction questions, the team strives to deliver impactful design. With the finesse of accomplished performers, they skillfully bring the client’s vision to life, showcasing creativity and proficiency in a show-stopping manner.

Sarasota influences us in so many ways:

  • Architectural Legacy: Sarasota is renowned for its architectural heritage, particularly in the mid-century modern style. There is much design inspiration for us with iconic projects by architects such as Paul Rudolph, Ralph Twitchell, and Sarasota School of Architecture members. We appreciate the mission of Architecture Sarasota and look forward to each event.
  • Cultural and Arts Scene: Sarasota has a vibrant cultural and arts scene, which helps to stimulate our creativity and feed our souls. Look for us when you are out and about, and visit our tent at the Sarasota Polo Club Events.
  • Coastal Living and Natural Beauty: Our location on the Gulf Coast, with access to beaches, waterways, and abundant natural beauty, influences our designs as well as our desire to live harmoniously with nature. The lessons of Mother Nature are never far from our minds as we strive to limit our carbon footprint and reduce damage by natural events.


The Sarasota Office is under the direction of PRA partners John Holz and Jedd Heap. John and Jedd are tireless client advocates and are intent on helping communities. The entire office is focused on integrating PRA into the greater Gulf Coast Region, following in the footsteps of the many designers who have helped to make Sarasota Architecture a living example of quality design.
