Description
A 2,300-square-foot, two-story, wood- and steel-frame, stucco-clad, built-up-roof, two-bedroom home and guesthouse with pergola, loggia, swimming pool and spa.

Approach
These “empty-nester” clients desired a beach home for themselves and visiting family. Requirements included separate guest quarters, a lap pool, and an elevator. They wanted spectacular views while retaining privacy, an open-plan home with discretely articulated spaces. The main house and guesthouse are connected by a pergola bridging the court for the pool, in which a supporting leg of the house rests. Numerous interior windows distribute views.
