Shell Beach Residence

A dramatic new entry focal point was created with a steel and sand blasted glass screen designed to provide interest and privacy. The motor court was created with scored concrete that echos the grid pattern of the privacy screen. The front planters incorporate Carex “Milk Chocolate” as the major color block and backdrop that plays off the oxidized steel screen color. Kniphofia “Burning Scepter” and Achillea “Fireland” accent the rust colors while providing a pop of color. The entry staging area that is typically inside a home was moved to the exterior by choreographing the motor court to open to an entry courtyard via a pivot gate which obscures the view of the dining room. Upon stepping into the entry courtyard to the right, flows a water wall that begs attention and slows the visitor by providing them a close tactile experience.The Ipe wood deck provides an inviting space that is protected from the predominate coastal winds of Shell Beach and is enhanced by the fire pit filled with recycled glass. The screen not only provides privacy for this interior garden but a backdrop to what could be an undesirable view off site while still allowing the important morning eastern light to enter the garden. At night, the screen’s dramatic lighting changes the outdoor mood with changing colors from simple romantic yellow tones to passionate pinks, reds and blues.
