In the case of buildings located near the sea, salinity is taken into account during the construction process due to their geographical nature. The design team chooses concrete as the primary mono material that exposes its applied texture throughout the structure along with other finishing materials with strong durability and easy maintenance such as rocksand aluminum to keep the framework intact.

The structure forms two levels in concrete volume, forming a monomaterial facade. The texture uses civil engineering form to create vertical lines with 20mm triangular bumps throughout the exterior, resembling ocean waves. Embracing the inevitable mark that the natural environment leaves on the structure in a non-abrasive way, the building applies the rugged pattern to the surfaces. The rough composition designs different fronts that transform during the day based on the light and shadow variations.

The residence covers only part of the plot, with the majority of its plot given over to open air areas due to the preserved natural green areas. According to this principle, the design group arranges three outdoor plots, entrance terrace, courtyard and ‘inner garden’, inducing an expansion of the surrounding environment of the property. The two-story building consists of the main house, another residential unit and a guest house that brings together the kitchen and guest room on the first floor, while the master bedroom is located on the upper level. The rooms are intended for temporary accommodation and fulfill minimal functions for short stays by the sea.
