A bold external form inspired by surrounding built character is translated internally to capture natural light and links to water and landscape.


The client brief for a breezy and spacious beachside retreat required engaging simple solutions to address and respect opportunities of site and surrounds.


An L-shaped plan wraps around the outer perimeter of the corner site, offering protection and privacy. Inspired by an abundance of gable roof beach houses, an abstracted silhouette shape is extruded through the new house, creating a clerestory and sculpting out intriguing interior experiences.
Rigorous internal planning generated a journey t

hrough three zones within the house: the entry and living areas facing north, the guest and study zone at the corner, and the enfilade master bedroom wing further north. A covered walkway buffers the master bedroom from the garden, creating a private edge to the dramatic lap pool. The walkway begins one of a series of parallel long viewlines through the house.
