Fitting onto a narrow strip of land, the design is carefully structured. Three internal courtyards govern the interior volume, and provide a sense of openness.

Extending through the ceiling, the voids act as light wells that flood the neutral interior spaces with natural light and ventilation.

A long window on the east side of the dwelling provides a parallel view of the ocean in the distance, while breaking up the longitudinal form, framing and optimizing views of the lush garden and surrounding scenery.
