CMSA ARCHITECTURE Innovative, Sustainable And High Quality Architectural Design Services And Solutions. As one of Florida's premier architectural firms, CMSA has been servicing the sunshine state with custom designed residences, commercial properties and elegant renovations since 1992. It comes as no surprise that the firm's President, along with his team of highly qualified architects and designers, were chosen to build a 36,000 square-foot modern Italian beach house on Longboat Key, Florida. Under the guidance of company President and award-winning architect, Clifford M. Scholz, CMSA has designed a truly majestic oceanfront home with plenty of lavish amenities and open air space, perfect for letting in the Florida sunshine. This Renaissance inspired mansion boasts a Tuscan colonnade lined atrium that includes a three story, 20-foot diameter domed skylight and custom palladium- crowned windows, a 17-foot floor to ceiling fireplace, and custom murals throughout the interior depicting Italian landscapes and scenes that include cameo's of the owners own grandchildren. The home features truly artistic amenities such as a gilded glass birdcage elevator cast in faux finished aluminum for a luxe bronzed look, onyx vanity counters in the powder room, and decorative glass by local artist, Virginia Hoffman. The home is also complete with an entertainment wall, game area, grand salon with a traditional paneled bar, and an ice cream parlor situated off the sunroom. All of these sumptuous amenities look out to 19,000 square-feet of open space and breathtaking Gulf views. Such detailed designs and artistic touches were made possible by contracting local Florida craftsmen and through the precision and dedication to excellence that CMSA promises. The extreme opulence combined with ocean views and a comfortable atmosphere is truly a testament to the exceptional design work and seamless business model that Clifford Scholz and CMSA are known for.
