The public space opens up like a funnel as the structure rises, so that the integrity of the closed private zone, located along two adjacent sides of the house, is partially eroded on the second level, then disappears entirely on the third.
The view to the ocean is dramatically revealed as one moves upward.
Two circulation systems pass up and through the building. Originating in an outside stair attached to a small guesthouse, the first system leads to a bridge linking the guesthouse to the main house.
At the second level, it continues via interior stairs along the side of the house connecting the second level to the third.
The second circulation system, serving the upper level, rises diagonally across the center of the house, the seam between the public and private zones. Both systems connect to an exterior spiral stair at the corner diagonally opposite the entry.
