Located in a secluded, coastal neighborhood with numerous building restrictions, the design intent was to create a seasonal beachfront residence honoring the legacy of the historical fabric of the older neighboring structures. The structure is supported on 127 14-inch augercast concrete pilings installed to a depth of 30 feet below existing grade.

The ground-floor areas provide for expansive open air entertaining and storage while all living areas are located on a single elevated living floor above the required flood elevation of state coastal building standards. The north wing of the floorplan is the master suite area and the south end is devoted to guest suites and mechanical support spaces, with common living areas within the core. Predominantly clad in limestone and cypress wood siding, the residence presents itself as a timeless beach house structure constructed to current standards and the latest technology, including geothermal heating and cooling, as well as pool heat.

From the Judges
