Beach Ave, Elwood

Sometimes rescuing a house from past design misfires provides a catalyst for innovation. We orientated our design towards a splendid nearby date palm and the western sunset. The sculptural form that swoops around the south western flank is a counterpoint to the northern glazing bearing directly onto the private yard.

Skylights and highlight 'clerestory' windows ensure that all-day natural lighting and ventilation is provided where it is needed.
