BEACH HOUSE | Beach House is designed to organize the site into two primary garden spaces and to have the house, in turn, open freely out to them. Residents and visitors are welcomed and embraced by the entry garden that is contained on all four sides and is defined above by a tree canopy. The ocean side garden, in contrast, is a wide lawn punctuated with tall coconut palms around a central reflection pool. This minimalist garden evokes a sense of calm and emphasizes the surreal view of the beach, ocean and the neighboring island beyond. Glass walls of the house recess into pockets creating an intimate experience with the garden, the view and the ocean breeze.
