Dune Road Residence

Dune Road Residence Stelle Architects

This low-key two-story house is sited on a classic ocean front site. The original house, slated for demolition, was built into the dune before current coastal construction standards requiring a much higher elevation. The goal was to keep the existing scale and dynamics of the site and design a residence that reflected the footprint and spirit of the original home.
Materials for the new house include Alaskan cedar shingle panels interspersed with glass sections. The home has three levels: one for the owners, one for their guests, and one for living and dining. A simple glass and shingle pavilion overlooks a negative edge pool while a path from the garage leads through a natural seaside landscape along the pool and up to the house.
Solar control is achieved though the use of overhangs in the southern exposures. Extra thick walls allow for superior insulation, and a geothermal system is employed for cooling.
