Esplanade at Palmer Ranch Project Overview


The Esplanade at Palmer Ranch is one of Taylor Morrison’s signature active living communities anchored in beautiful Sarasota, FL. This master-planned community has countless trails that connect to the city’s extensive Legacy Trail network for pedestrians and bikes. Located next to a state park, the development’s design focused on enhancing the lush natural beauty of the area. Based on this focus, the Decero Design team was inspired to provide a clear view of the bridge surroundings. Our goal was to encourage pedestrians to feel connected to the environment. To create this look, the design includes a sleek transparent profile featuring Ipe Hardwood saturated in a rich dark earthy color palette and stainless-steel wire rope. The bridge was envisioned to glide over an entry pond with a subtly curving path nested in the gorgeous community’s tropical landscape. The simplicity of the bridge complements the welcoming elegance of the main entry, like the warmth of a gentle smile.
