Palm Beach

Perched on a steep cliff overlooking Palm Beach, this hexagonal house is a distinctive landmark. Originally built circa 1980 by architect Stan Symonds, it has undergone two extensions by Connor + Solomon Architects. With the latest extension, the existing external concrete columns supporting the whole building were re-imagined, enveloped into the building by the new lower living level. This casual living area opens out onto a terrace, with an uninterrupted view of the ocean. The expansive glass doors provide a seamless connection between inside and out and the copper ceiling a striking feature. Alpine Constructions.
