The house is located on a total of 16,000 sq. feet, with both ocean and golf course views. The house has been designed in a "Z" shape, by separating the functional areas from the public and the private wings.

The building can be observed from the street and has an impactful impression as you enter the grounds and walk towards the entry.    

As you approach the entry of the house, you can directly spot the ocean beyond through the house's clear glass  Adhering to the strict design guidelines of the neighborhood, the building is set back from the street to capture as much of the view as possible.  

Designed to make the most of the surroundings, the house is open to the yard with large expanses of glass walls that slide away to allow for free flow from the interior to the exterior. 

The architects used concrete as the strongest building material on the contrast with of the use of a warm walnut for the flooring and cabinetry.
