ABOUT THE PROJECT
A new home for a property that belonged to the client's family since the 50's. As a boy, the client enjoyed being just steps from the beach and wanted to return to this place of fond memories for retirement. Expansive bi-fold doors face the ocean on all floors maximizing views. Vaulted ceilings soar up to a catwalk at the third floor which provide relief from challenging ceiling constraints. The volume delivers spaciousness while connecting the upper floor to the main living level. Large decks provide additional outdoor living that flanks both the street and beach facades which creates a view without abandoning the connection to the community.
