The Archer House is a celebration of the architect’s singular design skills and refined tectonic sensibility converted, in the hands of a master builder, to a masterwork. This house is sourced from the mainstream of modernist sensibility but soars into the realm of calm, zen-like architectural unity through its careful siting, spatial/compositional strength, and extraordinarily executed construction. The house resonates with the idea of a simple, but elegant, coastal weekender.
Although simple in concept – living “pavilion” over bedroom “podium” – the architecture is of great sophistication.
The roof plane hovers magically over the transparent living space, framing a beautiful view over ocean and beach.
This is a house designed and built with great care and unusual attention to detail by an exceptionally talented architect with a sure hand.
