McDonald House

The additions are separated from the original house by a new, common entrance. This provides independent and/or extended family living with small private spaces and a large communal area that opens over outdoor decks to the beach beyond. 

Planned around an open internal courtyard with panoramic views, the design meets the dual challenge of providing shelter from onshore winds and privacy from other beach users. 

The house combines a sure design touch and flair with careful material selection and detailing.
