Project Description

“The house invites the outside indoors, so it was important that the design incorporated floor-to-ceiling walls of glass that were compatible with the property’s natural surroundings.”

This luxury two-story waterfront home built of stone, wood and glass combines powerful geometric lines with natural details and materials. The residence features a custom curtain-wall system and extensive use of exposed steel to achieve a modern, minimal design. DRPILLA provided structural engineering and site drainage design for the new residence.

Natural Stone, Wood and Glass Invite Nature Inside

The wall construction is concrete masonry with six-inch stone veneer for the main level, wood-framed with cedar siding for the upper level and the foundation is cast-in-place concrete construction. The floor system is engineered lumber utilizing steel framing members to construct the numerous cantilevered portions of the building.

Cantilevered Levels Provide Structural Dimension

Throughout the residence, an extensive use of structural steel enables long spans and the extreme cantilever of the living room above the terrace at the pool level and the master bedroom to create a sense of floating. These cantilevered levels required structural vibration analysis to insure adequate performance of the building.

Glass Curtain Wall System Design

Custom designs were called on for the glass curtain wall system, which is engineered to withstand lateral wind loads of 125 miles per hour as well as impacts from windborne debris, while presenting minimal sight-lines.
