Sunset Park Modern

Privacy and articulation are the primary concerns at the first-floor street elevation on this narrow lot. The side-approach entry reduces the distance to daylight upon entering the house. This reduction of distance to the exterior makes the occupants more connected to the surrounding landscape. An office acts as an oculus at the street façade, offsetting the communal spaces that dominate the first floor. The open plan, exaggerated island, and oversized multi-slide doors create connection to the pool. The wood & glass staircase transitions to the second floor, features a communal stopping point at the upper landing, and unpackages the sleeping areas of the home. Upstairs features a glass-walled master suite that opens large sliding doors as a “Juliet” balcony to the ocean breeze and the pool below. The master bath features a “wet room” style shower and tub layout and his/hers sinks.
