Located on the edge of a cliff and at the end of a cul-de-sac with spectacular views to the
Pacific Ocean, our brief was to design a new residence for a young family which
includes home office space designed to function as an interior design studio.
The house reads as solid to the north-west, expressed as board-form concrete,
referencing the strata of the cliff-face. In contrast, from the south-east perspective, the
family home is transparent and light, opening up to the view. This sense of juxtaposition
provides an architectural reference to the natural elements, capitalising upon the home’s
idyllic geographical position.
A series of mechanically operated pivoting screens provide privacy and solar protection
for the bedrooms orientated towards the east. These perforated Corten screens provide a
filter and balance between solidity and transparency, rendering the bedrooms practical
for sleep, while allowing for optimal sea views during the day.
