The property for this residence is along the Bohicket River in the Low Country of South Carolina, just inland from the barrier islands of Seabrook and Kiawah. The clients wanted a contemporary beach cabin raised up above the flood plane, with very simple design and materials.
The insulated metal panel system that was used allowed for a rapid construction time frame, and a sparse aesthetic that appealed to the clients. Exposed concrete, plywood panels, and metal panels make up the interiors, with exposed metal ducts and exposed structural members on the ceiling.
The screened porch on the side of the house is accessed with a 15' wide slide fold door, allowing the porch to be open to the house for much of the year.
