Monoview (from the Greek word ‘mono’ meaning single) is the concept around which the architects have based their design. The residence is clad with wooden planks on three sides with its glazed side focusing towards the ocean encouraging a direct relationship with the surrounding landscape. The wooden planks fold indoors creating a uniform wooden interior which in return extends outwards to form an outdoor seating area with framed views towards the water.

‘The house is designed around the concept of a mono-view, meaning that the house opens up to the landscape in one direction only. This gives the entire indoor experience a sense of unambiguous orientation and intensifies the sense of bringing the landscape into the house.’
