Stelle Architects

This low-key two-story house is sited on a classic ocean front site. The original house, slated for demolition, was built into the dune before current coastal construction standards requiring a much higher elevation. The goal was to keep the existing scale and dynamics of the site and design a residence that reflected the footprint and spirit of the original home. Materials for the new house include Alaskan cedar shingle panels interspersed with glass sections. The home has three levels: one for the owners, one for their guests, and one for living and dining. A simple glass and shingle pavilion overlooks a negative edge pool while a path from the garage leads through a natural seaside landscape along the pool and up to the house.

Solar control is achieved though the use of overhangs in the southern exposures. Extra thick walls allow for superior insulation, and a geothermal system is employed for cooling.

Who is the window manufacturer. Are they impact resistant. Thanks
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
I'm also interested on whether the glass is one-way privacy glass? Or is it regular glass? Are there any privacy features?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Natural Wood Siding Minus the Maintenance
This project’s interior shares more with its exterior than the previous examples. The architect has carried the monochromatic theme inside while deferring to the panorama outside: the grass, the sea and the shifting dunes beyond, which provide the color.This view reminds me why natural siding in harsh environments just makes sense. The salt air, punishing storms, wind and sea spray make for a maintenance nightmare for fussy finishes on siding. By selecting materials that naturally resist these forces, we can appreciate the beauty of the environment instead of plowing through a list of household chores.
