Remarkable views in every direction provide a resort feel to this home. In their search for a perfect property, the owners fell in love with this location because one feels that every day is a vacation day. The design was carefully oriented around epic views of the bay. The curvilinear floor plan resembles an off center pinwheel with each component framing a different water view. The entry presents an unobstructed view of the ocean upon transitioning through the front door. An inverted curve roof form sets the entry experience into an interesting volume with an astounding view. Inspiration for this design came from resorts our clients love such as Post Ranch in Big Sur. Their home was designed to be a permanent getaway.
