On a blunt promontory pushing into Old Mangrove Bay, Newport, this house was designed to make the most of northerly aspect and the water that surrounds the site on three sides. Living areas are arranged around a protected courtyard allowing the house to remain open when bracing winter westerlies would otherwise make being outdoors unpleasant. A linear plan allows each room of the house to enjoy the view. Roofs lift to the winter sun.
