The longest block, that fronts to the ocean and contains the living, kitchen, dining, and great room in the center, is flanked by support spaces—the master bedroom and study to either side.
The great room has large expanses of glass framed by bookcases that act as columns, simultaneously providing a sense of enclosure and bringing in the views of the landscape and garden into and through the house.
The two bedroom cabins for their sons are designed to double as guestrooms, one with a loft and small study, the other with a larger open room.
The house is constructed of wood shingle and clad windows with vertical grain Douglas fir interiors. The ceiling is an exposed construction with trusses that rely on a central tension rod, giving the roof a light and airy structure.
