A simplistic A-frame design echoes a fundamental shelter; however here tilted back from the seaside to an angle where the roof is aligned with the surrounding terrain, to provide privacy on one side and panoramic views on the other. The main unit houses the living space, three bedrooms with private, en-suite bathrooms and two additional bedrooms with a large, shared bath in a lofted space. Across the covered courtyard lies the kitchen and dining room, designed like an observatory to provide undisturbed views to both the close terrain and the long view across the sea to the horizon.
