About Us


Seibert Architects is a Florida corporation with over 60 years of experience in architecture, interiors and planning. Since our establishment in 1955, we have been recognized as a leader of the Sarasota School. Today we continue our legacy in architecture, interiors and planning with an award winning team led by firm principal Samuel C. Holladay AIA, with design team members Michael L. Epstein AIA, and Pamela R. Holladay ASID.

Seibert Architects offers complete professional services including architecture, interior design and planning. The firm’s experience includes public sector projects, private residences, high rise condominiums, commercial offices, historical restorations, educational buildings, and large scale resorts.

Seibert Architects has received recognition for design excellence and its ability to solve architectural problems in a variety of work based on sensitivity to the Florida Gulf Coast environment and concern for its inhabitants. To that end, client participation is facilitated throughout the course of design to arrive at architecture that is programmatically and aesthetically reflective to client needs, site context, and budget.

We continue to meet each new project with creative and effective solutions that balances out the built environment with the natural environment creating a timeless architecture.


Edward J. Seibert FAIA began his professional career in the Sarasota office of the world renowned architect, Paul Rudolph. In 1955, he established his own firm in Sarasota and was nationally recognized early in his career as a leader in what is now referred to as the Sarasota School of Architecture.

His work was widely praised for demonstrating that excellence was possible even in small projects with minimal budgets. Using ordinary materials and strong geometrical forms he made a new architecture remarkably suited to Florida’s semi-tropical environment.

As the scale and nature of his practice grew from small houses to large projects, Seibert and his design team demonstrated great versatility while continuing to explore and refine a design philosophy of articulate geometry and sculpturally elegant spaces.

Today, Seibert Architects PA continues this design legacy. Now headed by Samuel C. Holladay AIA, a member of the firm since 1972, Seibert Architects PA upholds its commitment to architecture as art.
