On the narrower, steeper side neighbouring Cliff House another house comprising eight apartments was commissioned. I took advantage of its position on the slope to design a house that is accessible by a bridge.
The problem posed by the limited width I tackled shaping the apartments as follows:
The apartments on the east side creep around the ones at the centre to then surprisingly open up not only towards the sea but also towards the garden.
I threaded the rooms of the apartments on the west side along the hallway that opens up in both directions – sea and land as soon as one enters the apartment.
