BEACH HOUSE PATTERNS FOR ORGANIZATION

· Pattern 73-Adventure Playground from PL. Inspiration came from an important adventure playground from my childhood—the hayloft at my grandma’s farm. · Boardwalk doesn’t appear continuous, therefore, deterring people that would otherwise use it as a shortcut · Approach changes views focusing on the environment and different focal points avoiding views of the bedrooms. · Entrance serves as a gathering point when entering and exiting the structure and includes pattern 125-Stair Seats from PL. · Bathroom hidden by trees. · Form allows for vertical circulation, while respecting privacy of bedrooms. · Multiple paths for circulation. · Bedrooms are separate and not adjoined to a social space to reduce noise and incorporate a better transition to these private spaces. · Pattern 127-Privacy Gradient defines the way people enter the structure and get to the bedrooms · Roofs angled down to allow for unobstructed views in the social space. PL: refers to A Pattern Language by Christopher Alexander
