Oceanside condo re:skin

Collaboration with Cameron Crockett... funding fell thru.. as usual... but a good project nonetheless.

Clients desired a new skin/identity to a dilapidated 70's condo at Oceanside with direct exposure to beach air. Project included removal of damaged/rusted/rotted surfaces and railings. Design scheme attempted to remove metal railings in favor of folded planes that became rail ledges, openings to vistas, and new identity simultaneously.

Composite lumber on anodized frames composed the simple arrangement of facade plays.

first image is the trilogy- all three skin components sans building context to understand overall relationship of solid to void.
