The compactness and odd angles of the property defined the shape of this contemporary shingle style residence. We used these challenging site constraints to our advantage to create a hierarchy of exterior focal points and unique interior spaces. On the approach side the garage angles away following the side set back line diminishing it's impact and opens toward an intimate garden courtyard that serves to welcome guests as they walk to the front entry porch.

Upon entering the house views of the river and ocean beyond are immediately in full view. Despite being narrow on the view side we were still able to provide each living and bed room space with a view. One side of the house angles with the shape of the property which opens the plan up as a whole enabling interesting shapes and view opportunities.
