Nestled into the landscape, a few steps from the shifting dunes and the Atlantic Ocean, this modest structure was designed and built to take full advantage of this remarkable site.
Custom bronze doors and windows from Italy punch through this one story mahogany box sitting atop a board form concrete landscape wall. The complex pallet of materials and architectural details are used quietly and modestly throughout. Construction details were meticulously crafted not only to enhance the architecture, but also ward off the sometimes-brutal coastal environment.
Adding intrigue to the understated design is an all glass-sliding skylight made in England that accesses a spectacular roof deck. Running east to west along the southerly view to the water an elaborate shutter system, engineered and constructed in Seattle WA, shields the sun in summer and provides protection in the winter.
