We designed this house around our client’s active indoor-outdoor lifestyle. The house is a composition of stacked and shifted rectangular volumes that reveal multiple levels of decks and terraces, which can be used at different points throughout the day and year. Even the interior of the house is focused on the surrounding environment. First floor glazing extends the living space onto the adjacent lawn, and second level windows direct the eye to views of the ocean to the south and to a nature preserve to the north. A materials palette of compatible yet contrasting textures and tones reinforces the rigor of the house’s composition.
