From the architect. Beach house CN belongs to Carlos andNeni a pediatrician and a gynecologist and their two college kids. The way to interpret their dreams for summer life was that of having three separated clusters in a site with strictregulations for a single house. The house is composed of three volumes separated by open spaces that allow natural light and cross ventilation for all private spaces while providing common vertical and horizontal circulations articulated by cast in place sculptural elements that pretend conversations with the sun during different times of the day.

The bigger volume belongs to the couple and faces south west with spectacular view to the ocean, it accommodates the master bedroom at the second floor, a private terrace at roof level and all social spaces at first connected to a large terrace and an infinite pool. The smaller ones are for the children and face North West also with spectacular view to the ocean. Each volume with its three levels is dedicated to the kids and their friends.

The daughter’s volume is roofed by a female terrace holding a male cast in place table while the son’s volume is roofed by a male terrace holding a female table. Bedrooms and baths for the kids and their friends are open inside a double height volume, all beds and closets are “built in” trying to provide privacy within the different spaces.
