Beach House

The concept for this beach house was around creating a journey, that surprises and delights, through three main ideas:

-A classic simple form on the exterior, with rich interior space sequences.
-Fine textural detail using a restrained palette of traditional materials.
-Spatial contrast between rooms (whether through light and shadow, texture, proportion or form).

The palette is carefully refined and limited to a few classic materials, timber sizes, and tones. We wanted to maintain a strong simplicity, and clarity in the detailing, but at the same time offer a rich tactile experience.
