The design style requested by the owners is Rotterdam Modern. Rotterdam, being Europe’s largest seaport, infers an industrial quality. Plus, with Rotterdam being completely rebuilt after WW II adds Modern to the mix. The primary layout has 2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a kitchen, living, dining and family rooms. The site has broad southern views of forest and Monterey Bay.

Further key functions include passive energy efficiencies and fire resistant materials. Together the design composes these requirements into a dynamic but simple design.
