This house near the sea is designed to allow the occupants to enjoy the large site it is on. The social spaces are laid out to overlook a pool and garden and have views out to three sides of the property as they are laid out perpendicular to the plot frontage. This strategy allows for the garden to envelope the house, and creates views from all the rooms within the house. There is a generous use of double height spaces to integrate the rooms that are laid out over multiple levels. Large wrap around verandas and decks create a graded transition from the interior to the exterior and provide for outdoor entertainment spaces -which are integral to the ambience of a property by the sea.
