An existing small bach is extended and re-clad in cedar. A contemporary addition of lightweight metal wraps a combination of both upper and lower level living to capture views of Omaha Beach to the North, and a sheltered entranceway and courtyard to the Southwest.

“The staircase is visible from the entry and western courtyard and a clear visual tie between the upper and lower levels. A western window takes on a similar sculpted form – playing off the angular stairs to allow western evening light through the stairwell and perforated steel balustrade. Living room cabinetry and steel elements add to this expression and carry a common gesture through both living levels.”

Several bespoke and custom fabricated components were design for the project – in most cases as an alternative to more costly “off the shelf” equivalents. Sayes Jackson worked with local craftspeople including Monmouth Glass Studio, Powersurge and MadeBy to realise these components.
