The brief was to provide a replacement dwelling in a cliff top location maximising views over a south coast beach.
Due to the enclosed nature of the site the property was set down into the cliff. This required a highway supporting retaining wall to the rear and piles to the front to support structure and protect against coastal erosion.
A lightweight steel and timber frame superstructure created the open spaces required and the floating terrace effect.
