The design challenges the standard prime, single-view typology by layering an array of transparent interior spaces within the maximum allowable zoning envelope. With the assembly of stacked and unidirectional vaulted rooms contained within a simple rectilinear volume, the parallel orientation of the rooms within the house acts as a filter that extends the oceanfront view from the beachfront façade to the west through to the street at the eastern boundary of the site. With varied contours, volume and material finish, each vaulted room defines an area or function in the house. The combined effect is a varied landscape of interior spaces unified with a singular formal language. Similar to the paradigm of a shotgun house, the singular direction of the vaults maximizes the visual connection of all spaces within the deep building footprint, incorporating the exquisite exterior landscape of beach, ocean, and horizon into the depth of the building. While the program gradient flows from the main living and master suite adjacent to the ocean to the west to the inner courtyard, private study, guest and children's rooms to the east, the expansive views of the ocean are visible from even the most private spaces. The house acts as a shutter throughout the day and filters the surrounding landscape, light, and views toward the ocean beyond.
