Somewhere on the Atlantic coast, close to the low dunes near the ocean, sits Atlantic, a Bates Masi Architects-designed villa. Inspired from the local architecture, documented by Life Saving Station —which serves as a reminder of the maritime, military and architectural story of the coastal landscape—, Atlantic contains the signature wood and large windows of the area.
One of the main features of the residence is its exposed steel structure which defines the living spaces. They are complemented with an extensive use of wood —namely cedar, a weather resistant kind of wood— and very large windows, which open on the neighbouring streets.
And to minimize the impact of the footprint of the house, the design was optimized so that the main living area is stacked above the bedrooms and the living-room, creating a cantilevered zone which serves as a roof of the ground-floor terrace.
