The Jellyfish House

The vacation retreat for the Wielheesen family is located on a slim lot close to the beach. A long building in front of the site blocks its view to the sea on the ground. Therefore, the swimming pool is programmed as an extension of the roof terrace, which enables a long-distance view.

The house is organized according to three different routes. In addition to the main entrance, the path from the beach provides access to the ground floor and to the roof garden, without having to enter the house itself. A third route provides an entrance for guests.

Public and private programs overlap taking full advantage of indoor-outdoor living throughout the house. The public eating and living spaces face their respective outside conditions at opposing ends of the house, connected via public circulation. A separate circulation path connects the family’s private zones. Both circulation systems intertwine and confront each other. Each level of the house has a distinctive orientation to the outside, as the movement increasingly becomes freer from lower to upper floors.
