From the architect. Inspired by simple clean lines, this modern beach front home is designed to maximize the beach lifestyle and views, while enjoying the duality of the wind protected courtyard pool and garden.

Focusing on passive design principles this house is also layered with an extensive sliding timber shutter system that allows the building to be manipulated to suite the changing sun and weather patterns.
