    Formally, this home is composed of a volume brick and a volume of steel, linked by structural glazing to maximize sublime views of ocean and city. While the steel volume contains open plan living spaces, the brick volume acts as a functional hub.

    Laundry, kitchen and pantry are efficiently compressed into the brick volume, allowing a more fluid use of the balance of the interior space and it’s linkages to welcoming outdoor terraces found on each of the three storeys of the house.

    Chosen for it's durability and sustainability as a material, the elongated Elgin Butler brick pays homage to the historical modernist applications of this material, while the vibrant Cobalt blue glaze was chosen to activate the brick with a slick contemporary spin.
