The property, situated just beyond the ocean dunes, was purchased with a partial foundation and permits in place for a traditional, shingle style residence. The owner presented us with the challenge of designing a modern residence, which thoroughly integrated the indoor and outdoor spaces, for their family of four on exactly the permitted building footprint.
The result is a multi-level residence surrounding a courtyard space with sunken seating, pool and spa. Floor to ceiling, wood multi-slide doors connect adjacent spaces by means of a covered deck, stone walks and sandy paths. Dunescape and beach vegetation were utilized to restore the site and connect to the natural surroundings and ocean beyond.
