The house engages with the street through the gesture of a courtyard, which collects northern light and sea breeze. This is the primary level of the house. A bay window frames distant views and closer views down to the pool.

Below, a family room cuts into the dune and opens out toward the backyard. Above, the master bedroom and study connect further afield and lead to a viewing platform that looks out toward the Indian Ocean.
