The owners of this new vacation home were seeking a weekend getaway where they could spend their days kite surfing and relaxing at the beach. The home was designed for minimal maintenance and sustainable and durable materials were selected to handle the significant weather exposure. The house was elevated on concrete piers to allow any storm surge and driftwood to flow beneath and to keep the living area above possible flood waters. The interior layout is informal, to emphasize the relaxed nature of the home, and wide sliding glass doors facilitate easy access to the exterior deck for enjoying the sunshine and views.
