PROJECT: A New FEMA Beach House: Ocean Side

A New FEMA Beach House: Ocean Side

This new home is on the beach in Stinson Beach.  The Living, Dining, and Kitchen Spaces are accomodated within the portion of the home closest to the beach which is elevated to meet the FEMA requirements.


The Patio is located a half level down on the ground to the east where it is protected from the prevailing westerly wind.  The Patio overlooks an infinity edge plung pool south to the beach. 


The balance of the home is detached, is at grade behind the Patio, and steps down to the street elevation to the north.  This concept allows most of the home to be to be placed on grade with a building massing that is compatible with the adjacent homes that were built prior to the enactment of the FEMA requirements.
