From the Architects:
Vault House is situated on a densely created Californian beach website and challenges the normal prime, single-view typology by applying a technique of complex layering of transparent interior spaces. With a series of stacked and unidirectional vaults contained within a basic solid mass, the parallel orientation of the rooms inside the residence becomes a filter that emphasizes the continuation of the oceanfront view from the beachfront façade to the street. Similar to the paradigm of a shotgun-home, the singular path of the vaults maximizes the connection of all spaces inside a deep building, meanwhile incorporating the excellent exterior landscape of the ocean and horizon.
Project: Vault Residence
Designed by Johnston Marklee
Location: Oxnard, California, USA
