beach road residence . sections

sections through the residence show areas of the building that are cocooned in thick concrete and other transparent glass volumes that are staggered in front of each other to promote views of the water from the extremities of the site.

these transparent volumes house spaces that require a high level of interaction and connectivity, while the concrete cocoon will contain areas of the building’s program that are quiet, reflective and insular.
