This  seasonal home lies parallel to the water, looking south into preserved agricultural land with the distant sound of waves breaking along the ocean shore, and north to a field of wildflowers and native grasses. The plan bends slightly to maximize views of the coastline. A path from the parking court leads to a linear walkway of silver-grey weathered wood planks that passes through the entry foyer of the house and out to the pool beyond.

The volume of the house is a two-story wood, steel, and glass structure; transparent walls provide delicacy to the house. Louvered screens and deep overhangs shield the interior spaces from summer sun and allow warm winter light to dip below the roofline.

Inside, a hall runs past the entry foyer and kitchen, at which point the house plan opens into a light filled double-height dining and living space. A large chimney mass and skylight anchor the room. Above a suspended bridge spans through the double-height space connecting second story volumes at varying levels, inclining upward and terminating at either end in an open staircase. Guest sleeping rooms and a master suite inhabit these volumes and look out to the sea.

The upper level master suite includes a study, covered deck and a glorious light filled bath. The outside is comprised of a serene palette of natural materials which will weather as the house ages, harmonizing with the beachside landscape.
