DO Architects organized the Rolling Homes to face each other across a main road that connects the community to the road leading inland. Each 1,090-square-foot home is divided into three space-efficient levels, with the bedroom located on the top floor. The floors are not fully closed in order to maintain the illusion of spaciousness.

The front of each home is enclosed in a single flat glass facade to let in natural light and views. The rear facade, however, is split into two glass facades, with the lower third recessed to allow for a covered outdoor patio. A set of stairs leads out from the patio into the grassy landscape. The surrounding community also includes a boarding and windsurfing center designed by DO Architects.
