Project's description: The house has a two-story structure with 3 bedrooms, loft like living/dining/kitchen areas, large terrace and covered balcony spaces above. The contours and curvature of the land combined with the city's 23 ft. height limit were used to develop a snug, intimate relationship between the architecture and the site.

Upon arrival one enters a one story sculptural volume wrapped in wood. It is faceted like a piece of rock as if it was just washed to the shore by the ocean. A glass-bridge structure connects a guest suite at the entry to the master suite over a double height living room down below. The master bedroom is wrapped in Ipe wood on walls, ceiling & floor with clear views of the beach. It is the master bathroom however that is very special, intimate, warm and almost a Swedish sauna-like with the jewel-like Crystalline Bath tub and sink facetted just like the space itself.
