Pavilions is a project designed by Sparks Architects. Dividing the plan into two ‘pavilions’ linked by a generous breezeway space enables natural light and ventilation into the south, as well as north, parts of the house.

Living areas are on the upper floor which enjoys views over the dunes to the ocean; the bedrooms and library are located on the more private and protected ground floor which is tucked in behind the dunal vegetation.
