Residential Architecture: Seacliff House by Chris Elliott Architects: “..situated on a long and narrow sliver of land that was leftover from the original subdivision. the area enjoys spectacular views over the ocean, the adjacent park, sandstone cliffs and headland to the south, designing with the peculiarities of the site rather than struggle against them..the ground floor is a long transparent platform where nature is welcomed in and not excluded. it is ordered by a series of columns and defined by solid walls. glass runs along, around and above the rigid elements, curving and weaving to provide various lookout points around the perimeter. while large sliding and pivoting transparent doors open to the outside..”  Solar energy, green roof, roof terrace, extensive glazing, lovely views and natural light, intriguing interior with intrusions of rock, interesting interior volumes and detail fenestration/lightwells, contextual and indoor/outdoor sensibility..
