In order to stay in context of the area’s architectural history, renowned for its 1950s conservative style of housing, it was decided to renovate an existing 9,000-square-feet home. The outcome was a stunning family home with floor to ceiling windows looking out to sea and features including a private room, a game room and roof terrace with a swimming pool. Inspired by international modernism and the simplicity of the Farnsworth House, the building reflects its natural surroundings and emphasizes the natural and organic aspect of the design.

Large glass panes were used to provide views of the sea, while pebble dashing, sourced from a local beach, are incorporated into the lower walls to give the house a more natural feel. Kebony wooden, maintenance-free finish was created by cooking Kebony beams of maple and pine wood with alcohol and pressure, turning their soft wood properties into a hard wood. This environmentally-friendly process results in a sustainable wood that boosts the home’s unprecedented eco-friendly features.
