HOUSE WITH TURRET

completed new build two storey residence

A new house on the leeward side of a beach-side dune in Scarborough.

Three storeys each interact with distinct aspects of the site. The house engages with the street through the gesture of a courtyard, which collects northern light and sea breeze. 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 turret, a viewing platform that looks out toward the Indian Ocean.
