The design of main beach house is to accommodate an extended family while providing an indoor/outdoor relationship and capture the surrounding views of the bush land, ocean and the Broadwater. The program responds to the constraints by developing a tower house which divides the house into two parts.

The lower three levels are designed for a couple with young children and contains a living area on the upper level, bedrooms in the middle and a guest area and communal living area at ground level opening onto a private pool terrace. The upper two levels contain living and sleeping areas for two other family members. All levels are connected by a stair and an elevator. A shared roof terrace provides an entertaining area allowing guests to capture the magnificent surrounding views.
This minimalist home interior design has a purpose for a family so that when assembled they can see the beautiful scenery around the house, beautiful views of the course can be seen from inside the house because the house has a transparent glass design. Exterior modeling expresses the duality within the family makeup – independent yet connected. The dynamic cantilevered form was made possible by the integrated structural design. The house was designed to provide a good northerly aspect, maximum natural light and cross ventilation.
