Overview: The location allows the house to offer magnificent views of the ocean and bay but also exposes it to the winds, not to mention that, being so close to the road, the privacy and noise became important issues for the project.

The architects’ response to the site was to elevate the main level on a plinth. This way, the ground floor which contains the guest bedroom, the gym, study and garage was partially set into the site and concealed by vegetation.

The first and second floors were fragmented and rotated in order to also create an exterior terrace. A glass bridge connects the interior structures. The family room, kitchen, dining area and lounge are all connected to a large terrace and a blue mosaic pool runs the length of this amazing terrace, making the views even more spectacular.

The entertainment room features a beautiful weathered copper bar with natural stone countertops and a custom laser-cut aluminum screen. A fiery and sculptural light fixture is the focal point of this portion of the room.

Year: Present – 2020

Overview: The 5,200 square foot house was built with a selection of materials chosen to reflect the regional landscape: quarry stone and locally-sources teak wood which are both resistant to weather variations and erosion. One of the main priorities was to allow the house to capture the stunning views of the ocean. However, because of the considerable slope and the tall building between the land and the shore, that proved to be a challenge. The solution for the problem was to relocate the entrance, the social areas and the infinity pool on the middle level of the three-storey structure. This way the incredible scenery can be admired without any obstructions and it feels like the ocean is at their doorstep.

Overview: Infinitas is the 300 foot (91.5 meter) yacht concept. The design’s main inspiration comes from the symbol for infinity which has been abstractly expressed within the yacht’s elevation.

The design’s main inspiration comes from the symbol for infinity which has been abstractly expressed within the yacht’s elevation.

The two major features of the yacht asserted by this closed loop infinity symbol are achieved by carving out stern and mid section elliptical deck constructs.

A central structural “spine” holds the loop together allowing the yacht’s superstructure to seamlessly flow within itself. The added benefit of “infinity” is the realignment of traditional functional areas.

Within this realignment, the main deck living room, and dining room are detached. The dining room moves forward and is separated from the living room by a massive pool deck.

This new deck location allows for the first time, direct access to dining room and kitchen for expanded activities, in combination with the living room/salon.

There are three methods to traverse the pool deck. First is a direct outside bridge / walkway which bisects the pool itself. This walkway has underwater openings in its support system, allowing swimmers to dive from one side to another. The pool has the option of being covered for larger venue needs.

The second method of crossing the pool deck is an overhead sky bridge which connects to the main stairs and elevator. The “sky” bridge is clear glass floor and ceiling allowing natural light to penetrate the pool below.

The third method is through a lower level lounge which features glass portals into the pool.
The main level contains the two aforementioned decks, living room, dining room, kitchen, storage, and bow deck (with helicopter pad).

The interior design of the space, and others, reflects an intense minimalist palette with a dash of attitude.

The main salon also features generous 12 foot ceiling height and fully glazed walls creating an island within the yacht.

The second level up is reserved for a series of guest suites and secondary bow deck. The owner’s suite occupies the third level with “sky bridge,” pilot house, and upper deck.

All decks below are currently designated crew quarters, storage and mechanical, engine room activities.

Infinitas is designed to accommodate 16 guests and crew.
