Rooftop at The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center (SBDAC)


Fort Myers, FL
Built by Stephen R. Bowen Construction
This project involved the transformation of the rooftop space for an existing three-story building, The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center. Given the art gallery’s location in the historic downtown Fort Myers River District, Studio A.D. took care not to disturb the street façade or any of the existing parapet roof structure while creating the custom art gallery rooftop design. The reimagined space featured the addition of a small kitchen, full-service bar, restroom facilities and stage area. The final rooftop design also involved structural alterations to the building itself, because the original roof wasn’t designed to be occupied. Keeping safety in perspective, two new stairway towers were added on the east and north side of the building as exits. Stephen R. Bowen Construction completed the construction, and the charming rooftop space is currently used for various social events and wedding receptions.
