With the beach at its doorstep, this family home once had a closed off street front that blocked the ocean views and a floor plan of cramped and unfriendly rooms.

The design that transformed the house into an inviting home for the Clients and their young children opened up the front of the house. This not only allowed access to the views but also enabled interaction with the neighbourhood.

The front door of the home now enters onto a naturally lit, generous hallway which serves as circulation to the rest of the house and also as a successful indoor play area for the children.
