This extensive remodel and addition to a 1950's modern-era waterfront spec' house has been in the family for two generations. Respecting the original structure and style was a primary concern. This was achieved by drawing from the existing language; the open plan is organized by composed rock masses, generating layered spaces which are drawn outside through the use of view and material.

Careful consideration of natural light and solar exposure dictated the design of overhangs and clerestory windows which, along with upgraded glazing, appliances and geothermal HVAC made this former spec' home a model of sustainability.
