This private residence is set high on a dramatic secluded coastal region of the Pacific ocean. The dynamic structural solution is in direct response to the site's steep sloping rugged topographic conditions and the desire to orientate the building to face the expansive sea views. In a single span, bridging across a deep ravine, the open-plan, south-facing living space looks out over the ocean. The living space extends onto a covered full-width terrace of equal size and orientation as the living space. Located to the rear of the house are three en suite double bedrooms, kitchen, and storage. A library and storage wall divides the public and private spaces of the house. The Kitchen and breakfast bar can be opened up to connect with the living space by means of large sliding doors, to create one open continuous space with through views to both sea and land sides. There are 4 sliding doors in total which allow flexibility in arraignment and varying degrees of separation. Fully closed they conceal the kitchen; fully open they conceal the library. Directly in front of the Breakfast bar which separates the living space from the kitchen is the main staircase which connects the living area with the entrance hall bellow. This stair sits beneath an operable skylight that runs the length of the living room and allows natural daylight to penetrate through the building down to the entrance hall during the day and captures the colored light of the rising and setting sun in the morning and evening. At this separation, there is a drop in the ceiling height which denoting the division between the public living spaces which face the sea and the private domains of the accommodation which face inland.
