STONE HOUSE | Stone House is designed as a collection of intricately assembled stone boxes arranged on the site to create a sense of intimacy with the beach, ocean and warm pacific air. The individual pavilions are floating roofs where the movable walls can be retracted into pockets. Buildings are placed on the site to take best advantage of views while creating intimate garden settings between them. The sequence through the entry courtyard begins with angular juxtaposition and is completed by the full landscape palate. Moving through the main pavilion and arriving at the ocean side garden one is aware of a calm minimalism and the extension of view to the horizon.
