The brief of the client for this project is to design a house that stands out amongst properties for rent. One that can capture the awesome views of the landscape, especially the ocean and bay views.

The clients also want to make the most of the outside area of the house for entertainment and feel connected with the surrounding nature.

This house is designed to adapt to its site and to avoid windy conditions, and a residential pest removal firm is employed at regular intervals to keep the surrounding area and the property itself clear.

It is also a house with a transparent feeling thanks to the seamless connection between the front and back areas and an open setting to the views. The bathrooms underwent bathroom remodels as the client’s preferences changed on a few of the choices previously made. The changes constituted a few additions and design changes that better suited the property’s theme and intention.

The eastern side of the house can be the best place for the owners to enjoy the landscape and ocean views. If the weather is windy, the western side will be a perfect place to bathe in the sun while keep being sheltered from the wind.
