House in a Beach Garden

In order to make the most of the scenic views from the site, the upper floor of the House in a Beach Garden composes of panoramic windows. The external faces of all the bedrooms can open up with glass sliding windows. Sliding screens made of aluminium strips wrap around the upper floor as a second skin. While they provide privacy and create beautiful shadows through the day, they can also slide way completely to relish in uninterrupted views of the surrounding. The centrally located skylight holds up the solar panels. By orienting the panels to the south for maximum absorption, the skylight allows for gentle light from the north to filter through the house.
