Project Description

Dated design, but cherished family home. Ocean views going to waste, but incredible location. This project had renovation written all over it. After two years of construction, our clients (and beloved family dog) were finally ready to enjoy their new and improved beachfront property. Our challenge was to open up the space and establish a stronger connection with the ocean and to celebrate light and air flow, and to evoke a new sense of style and sophistication. Extensive deck living, including louvered roof and an outdoor fire and pizza oven encourages socialising through every season and provides an ideal vantage point to watch the occasional pod of dolphins and orcas pass by. The homes new strong architectural form literally frames the ocean views, and inside, there's plenty of large, open living areas to accommodate lots of weekend guests. The new upper level houses the master bedroom, office and viewing deck, with a multi-level lift on standby to chaperone people directly from the from upper floor down into the basement wine cellar.
