This is a beach house located within a suburban setting. A simple glass box protected by a curved aluminium roof and solid concrete end walls.
Private and contained, the building intentionally addresses the adjacent beach with greater solidity offered to the street and adjacent houses. The extruded glazed form, transparent and ventilating, promotes the connection of all spaces to the outdoors.
Privacy, implemented by the provision of a raised podium and associated transitional spaces, is further reinforced by the curved solid roof with its single slit. Internal and external living spaces seamlessly linked and yet appropriately intimate.
Robust, comfortable and understated; the building pays homage its beautiful location
