Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean this house is carved into the terrain. This allows for an unobstructed ocean view from the public road at the rear and protects the building from the strong prevailing winds. The bedrooms are organized towards naturally sheltered outdoor spaces providing close-up views, while the living room is established as a glazed amphitheater facing the horizon. Walls are made of two-sided poured in place white concrete.
