Located on oceanfront sand dunes within both a flood and hurricane prone region, this two storey steel-framed minimalist residential project requires breakaway construction as well as lightweight components that can be transported to site by sea. Contained within the heart of the steel framing are prefabricated pod structures housing all the mechanical equipment for the carbon-neutral house.

EOC is providing facade design for the full-height external glazed walls facing the beach, louvered shading system, glazed roof and solid cedar-clad walls
