Copyright Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects | Site design
This beach house replaces a beloved William Wurster house that burned down on the site. The client requested we design the new house to capture the spirit of the original house while meeting all the current seismic codes and FEMA requirements for houses in high risk coastal zones, which included raising the floor level of the house. We shaped the building volumes of the new house to create a variety of wind-sheltered outdoor spaces that take full advantage of the views to both the Pacific Ocean and the Marin Hills.
