Nestled behind the dunes, this residence is designed to take advantage of the spectacular site while being sensitive to the natural landscape surrounding it. Conceived of as two offset stacked boxes, the first floor steps away from the landscape, creating a private outdoor sitting area that is defined by the cantilevered volume above and the dunes. Three guest bedrooms, a large media room, and building services make up the lower level. The bedrooms all have outdoor access leading directly to the dune path and the beach. On the roof, a spa and outdoor shower overlook the ocean.
The main living space is located on the second floor to capture the view. The space contains cooking, eating, and living functions. Movable wooden screens and stackable sliding doors open the space up completely to the deck that is created by the volume below. The fireplace captures two of these sliding panels, turning the room into one large outdoor porch.
