The elevated pool surround defines the main entry to the house and acts as a beautiful reflective surface echoing the Ocean beyond. The Ark is a living expression of space and form shaping light. Spatial continuity, sweeping form and light create a sense of upliftment and the feeling of sacred space to dwell in. The design is an obvious departure from oppressive flat ceilings to soaring vaulted space which creates a natural dialogue with the sky. This and connection to the earth both in form and incorporating sustainable features and materials are fundamental to this design.
