The project was conditioned both, by the awkward geometry of the plot and the orientation. The house was resolved in two bodies aligned to the edges; the vertex where they intersect becomes a void for the semi-open vestibule. The resulting areas around the foot prints of the two buildings, become open spaces: terrace, garden, patios and solarium.
Given the nature of this beach house, we sought after generous, ventilated, and well illuminated spaces that would maintain a direct open rapport to the exterior as well as to the landscape.
The narrow facade overlooking the street is totally closed and hovers cantilevered over the garage to allow more parking space. In contrast, the facade to the garden is diaphanous so that outside becomes an extension of the inside.
