Jetty House

PROJECT STATEMENT The densely wooded site is situated one lot from the beach and faces two large waterfront houses. The program called for a home that would include ample living space, an attached apartment, and a small office. The structure needed to be tall enough to permit ocean views from the top floor.

Taking inspiration from Folly Beach’s ubiquitous jetties, the house was conceived as an elongated L-shaped structure that connects to the water through a view “corridor” between two adjacent houses, framing ocean views from every floor. The primary house form was “carved” to create balconies at each level and a prominent garden on the roof. The resulting spaces shield the interior from the sun and protect the house’s balconies and windows. The large windows on the front façade and smaller, selectively placed windows on the side walls create telescopic views of the beach while providing complete privacy to the interior spaces.
