ocean top

Jan Jac, 1999

This striking design for a beach house extension of an existing family holiday home, the clients, now empty nesters hoped to make it their primary residence. The site had the potential for fantastic ocean views and the client wished this to be the focal feature of their new home. Instead of delivering just the usual floor to ceiling windows, the design uses a ribbon of different window proportions that frame the view around the entire building. (Brearley Middleton)
