This house attempts to build upon other examples of Victorian architecture in Seaside. Its robust form is counterbalanced by light decoration. An exterior stair leads from the third floor to the open air top floor of the tower. Moving the stair to the outside allows for more interior space and adds an ephemeral quality to this house. The tower’s form funnels the pedestrian to the Krier walk created to the house’s left.

There are living areas on every floor to accompany the house’s three bedrooms. The stair within the house is rather grandiose, and is fed by plenty of natural light. Every room within the house that is frequented daily receives a great deal of natural light. The rooms are all spacious, and cater to social gatherings.
