Perched on the cliff top of Jan Juc, this Zen Architect designed home is exposed to all the elements that mother nature has to offer.
The Ocean Boulevard House evokes the fond memory of the elevated timber beach house it replaced.
By referencing the old beach house’s simple, elegant form and practical, efficient spaces, we designed something entirely new yet surprisingly familiar. Integral to the brief was the contrasting needs of the desire to capture ocean views, while providing privacy and protection from cold southerly winds. The existing footprint was re-used but the form was re-designed to respond to these needs while also harnessing solar gain for passive heating in winter and cross ventilation for passive cooling in summer.
