Problem: Design a residence for two lawyers on an oddly shaped lot. Provide expansive views to the water and a strong street presence while maintaining privacy. Respect the owners preference for traditional coastal architecture while also reflecting their unique style.
Solution: The house uses gable-front forms to reflect traditional architecture and give a strong presence in the neighborhood. An angle in the house allows it to bend to capture beautiful water views, and sets up an internal geometry that allows the main spaces to be open to one another while still well-defined.
