Silver Strand Beach House in California

Design: ROBERT KERR architecture design

Location: Silver Strand Beach, Oxnard, Ventura County, California, USA

Silver Strand Beach House

Located on the Silver Strand Beach in Oxnard, this house responds to extraordinary site conditions as a progressive revealing of a sculpted interior.

Silver Strand Beach House

The bottom level is a mix of colored glass tiles that gives the appearance of lightness and incandescence.

Cantilevering on 3 sides, the top level is sculpted to express openings and finished quietly to exaggerate its weight over the bottom level.

The 2nd floor is an expansive and complex composition of intersecting ceiling planes, framed openings and ocean views.

Major formal manipulations are the result of the site’s intersecting views from the Channel Island Marina to the Pacific.

The roof and ceiling forms are manipulated to magnify and contrast these views.

This primary view-expression cuts diagonally as a continuous ceiling vault.

Secondary ceiling expressions direct views to the beach, while shielding from less desirable directions.

Framing views and continuing exterior materials into the house create a common visual and tactile thread.

Shimmering glass tile on the building’s bottom level leads to the side entry that is hidden at the street.

Inside, the same glass tile continues upstairs along the stair, and contrasts with concrete floors, teak stair and white ceiling.
