N House, Kamakura

With a separate apartment on half the first floor,  a three bedroom home above, views straight out over Pacific, and a planning requirement for fire ladder access from the street below this design was a little tricky.

The leaning front wall of glass with the Juliet balcony on the side solved several issues at once - daylight, views and fire access. And suddenly a modest seaside house has some serious attitude.
