The brief for this Omaha Beach bach was to design an ‘easy living’ holiday house as a base to gradually retire and be able to enjoy family times.  

The outcome is a North oriented relaxed and comfortable ‘retreat’ that utilizes indoor / outdoor connections producing a seamless flow between living and sheltered courtyard terrace spaces.  Vertical timber cladding gradually weathers and softens to a ‘light’ grey colour and forms layered and angled sandcastle like forms. ‘Sandcastles’ was the concept for this Omaha Beach Bach with the simple forms allowing for an easy living lifestyle. The indoor/outdoor spaces provide extensions from the several living rooms.
