Designed as a small beach retreat for a Portland family, the Panet Raymond Beach house embraces sweeping views of the Oregon Coast. Sitting amongst a row of houses which follow the Pacific City beach, the house appears to grow from the sand like the dunes which surround it. read more »

This house located on a ridge above the east coast and has spectacular views from Poverty Bay right around to Tatapouri Point. Story from the architects “This single storey house clings to the ground as it steps down the hill then as it reaches the edge of the ridge it opens out otwards the sea to become a grandstand for viewing. The clients required a house that could accommodate an extended family but on the other hand one that would also feel comfortable if just two of them were home. This resulted in a T-shaped plan of essentially two wings, one of which could theoretically be closed down. This form allowed a sheltered outdoor area protected from the easterly and nor-eastely winds but still very much connected to the view through the transparent living wing.”
From the architects “Located in the rapidly expanding eastern end of Omaha Beach, one row of sections back from the sand dunes, the house is an exercise in symmetry modulated to suit the site. In order to sit calmly in the somewhat jumbled context, it has clear formal structure: two symmetrical plywood-clad boxes float over pre-cast concrete panels and present a strong elevation to the street, symmetrical above and modified below to provide a welcoming entry sequence. The formality becomes frayed with an incised terrace and horizontal planes of louvred sunscreens to the sea and sun on the north. This format offers privacy from the street and a more relaxed relationship between the interior spaces and the lawn with beach beyond…..”
Located in Rodondo Beach California, this house was designed by Patrick Tighe Architects. From the architects “The 3000 square foot residence is located in Rodondo Beach. A courtyard is carved out of the building massing. Walls of glass open to an internal outdoor room. The scale of the neighborhood is maintained with a single story component at the street. A larger mor expressive volume extends toward the ocean. An east-west is maintained as the two entities circumscribe the courtyard. The building is grounded at the suburban neighborhood condition and rises to the west in response to the ocean and city views.”
This house located in Venice Beach, California and designed by Patrick Tighe Architects, from the architects “The 4200 square foot building stands on a corner lot along the Venice Beach Boardwalk. A forced perspective is used in the interior to open the 20′ wide by 90′ long house to the Pacific Ocean. The utilities of the building are contained within the service core and concealed within a wall that longitudinally bisects the narrow building. A double height atrium space serves as the entrance. A roof top deck provides panoramic views of the Coast. A solar canopy, rooftop garden and other sustainable building systems and materials are integral to the design.”
From the architects “Cohasset Beach is a 63 home coastal “village” in the City of Westport along the central Washington coast. Great attention was placed in designing 10 prototype homes with expansive windows to celebrate the coastal views and dramatic light. Great rooms, master suites and master baths open out to views of the ocean. A rich coastal palette of natural materials of light limestone and bamboo floors complement the sand and dune grass landscape to enhance the indoor/outdoor experience.”
