The ‘On The Rocks’ Residence Personifies Elevated Beachside Living

As time marches forward, the world’s adoration of outlandish architecture continues to grow. Alongside the bevy of interesting propositions (and conceptual elements) that have overtaken the industry’s most creative avenues, the lust for a unique structure remains as prevalent as ever — illustrated perfectly by David Tajchman’s “On The Rocks” residence.

The architect’s ambitious project makes its home on a rugged outcrop high above the windswept caps of the Pacific ocean — an observer, providing careful watch over its surroundings. To mimic the curvature of the site as it dips toward the sea, a fluid roof structure serves to mirror the ebb and flow of the tide, allocating various ripples, grooves, and patterns to reference the motion of the body’s tumultuous current. The entrance to the home, a subtle overhang providing both protection and shade for the client’s lavish vehicle, acts as an introduction to the dwelling’s ethos — providing an experiential journey from start to finish. As you descend into the project’s refined interior, an elaborate composition of intentional curvature, contemporary design elements, and forum-like socialization areas lie sheathed in natural light, courtesy of the home’s expansive, panoramic windows.
