The design was inspired by the oceanfront location and breathtaking private beach. The result is a bold and dynamic architecture that aims to take advantage of the ocean views and warm climate. The living units include floor-to -ceiling glass sliding doors that open the volumes to expansive balconies. Units that are angled toward the Northern sun provide gratifying views of the coastline from both living room and bedroom. Whereas units placed at the West side are suitable for sunset lover. The architectural elements and warm color scheme characterized the façade and harmonized with nature and surrounding contexts. The West façade utilizes horizontal elements while the North facade plays with vertical features in order to create movementand a variety of masses. Feature screens create dramatic shades and shadows throughout the day and night.  When arriving into the facility, one starts to feel the light, breezes, and sound of the ocean. In here, everyone can slow down the usual pace, and unfold the feeling of distance.

The landscape area met the challenge of uneven terrain leading to the beach and preserving existing trees, the result is the harmonious balance between steps, slopes, platforms and walls defined by the use of different colors, textures and forms.
