Based on a preliminary design provided by the Owner, this 300 m2 (3,300 sq.ft.) home is located on a site that slopes over 15m (50') towards the Pacific Ocean. The home is inverted from the norm in that the parking and entry are at the top level, living spaces in the centre, and the bedrooms on the lowest level. The windows and balconies are all situated to maximize the views. Computer modeling was used during the approval process to ensure that the minimum number of trees were removed and to resolve the roof design and other design details.
