The brief was for a large family home which took advantage of ocean views from the first floor.
As the views were to the south, a primary living space with outdoor entertaining spaces facing the view and also facing north were incorporated, so the owners could sit on the rear deck and still see the water.
A split level design was used to address the height limitations in relation to the steep roof pitch.
The site is quite narrow at 10m so the garages were positioned off a lane access to the west. To avoid compromising the northern aspect and pool connection for the ground floor living room, the garages are centrally located. To address the long-ish corridor behind the garages, a recessed garden was included at the mid-point as a feature.
At the owner\'s request the bedrooms were divided into two zones, with the master suite also accessing limited views from the ground floor.
