Heroic Modern on the Ocean

When you think of heroic modern, one envisions concrete, bold cantilevers, large expanses of glass and minimalism.  Built out of post tension concrete and rising two and a half stories out of the dune with large wrap around cantilevered terraces, this house pushes all the buttons – hurricanes be damned.

A minimalist, A-framed waffle grid screens the various spaces from the street. One ascends a series of terraced steps and enters under the screen wall through a massive pivot door. Upon entry, visitors are greeted with a view line straight through the house to the ocean beyond. The kitchen, dining and living area is open and surrounded by minimally framed glass sliders that extend the entire space to the outdoor terrace.

Clad in mirrored stainless steel, the main stair sits in front of a massive window, sandwiched between two board formed concrete structural walls. The window has an uninhibited view west, flooding the interior spaces with sunset light. In addition to the bedrooms on the second floor, there is a generous sized sitting room with an expansive glass sliding door and a large wrap around cantilevered terrace.

The access to the Owner’s Suite is via a generous spiral stair made from fused Corian®. The primary bath, primary bedroom and sitting room all have views and access through the glass doors to the extensive cantilevered terraces, affording 270⁰ ocean views, down the white sand beach for miles in either direction.
