Private Residence


Boise, Idaho



The form of the house takes its inspiration from its context: the beach and waves. It is literally cantilevered over the surf, which passes beneath it at high tide. It has an exceptional location as it positioned at the end of a long open stretch of beach and has views on three sides. The main spaces open up towards the surf with a wall of glass and extensive decks, which have fire pits. This indoor/outdoor relationship was very important to the client. The compact plan was carefully designed to provide views form all the main rooms, with large open spaces and maximum flexibility for entertaining. The curves of the windows mirror the movement of the sea, which they literally reflect.
