THE PROJECT
To take a floor plan dictated by the Client and adapt it into a workable design.
To add some dynamics to a rectangular plan with a long central hallway and still take
advantage of wonderful ocean views.

THE SITE
100-year flood planes for this 70' x 160' site required habitable floor
elevations to be 2 ft above the highest adjacent grade and that all structures
be capable of withstanding hydrostatic and hydrodynamic loads, buoyancy,
flood depths, pressures and velocities of a base flood tide with allowances
for the automatic entry and exit of floodwaters at the foundation level.
Deed restrictions set a height limit of 15 ft.
