The design strategically manipulates the form of the residence create a home that embraces the view, provides large outdoor living spaces and a livable flow between the indoors and the outdoors.

The building’s design is organized by the relationship of two terrace spaces, three sites defined axial geometries, and the desire for the building masses to respond to and merge with the descending hillside topography. An upstairs courtyard provides light and privacy for the bedrooms, while the downstairs living area wraps 270 degrees around the home to provide views to the ocean and the mountains.
