The Terrace - Concept
The site for this project was North-South orientated with ocean views to the south. Each residence can accommodate a large family. The basement floor level provides an area where visitors could stay independently with little impact on the main occupants of the dwellings.
The brief was to design two townhouses over three levels with south facing balconies enjoying the ocean view, while the north facing balconies were to take full advantage of the northern solar access.
The width of the site determined a common wall was required to separate the two dwellings, while the fall of the site allowed the opportunity for the three storey residences to appear as two storey from the street frontage.
With two master bedrooms at the north and south end of the first floor each with ensuites, balconies and a shared living. The ground level accommodates the kitchen, meals, main living and balcony, while on the basement level the very spacious third and fourth bedrooms are located along with a bathroom, laundry and living with kitchenette.
