The Qwave is a proposed tinyhouse for Sarasota's Vamo district, and has a distinct Sarasotan heritage. This area, which dates from the 1920s, is a pocket of space redolent with the timeless, gentle natural energy of the central West Coast of Florida. With a jungly gravel road leading down into Little Sarasota Bay, there is a thin finger pointing westward towards the setting sun. Wave motion laps lazily against the mangroves, and the clams, crabs, and other sea creatures live a fragile reef of existence along the water's edge. So too do the residents of this little area, many for decades, in a district that seems the eye of the hurricane of development. Still, quiet, and preserved, its atmosphere is a tesseract to the past. Within this genus loci, we are tesselating the future as well with the qwave.
