After researching various 1960s beach homes, there were many that stood out with regards to the way they handled their spatial conditions. Steven Holl, Richard Meier, Charles Moore, and William Turnbull Jr. designed many precedents that we were able to specifically look into. Turnbull would become a strong inspiration moving into concept and design. He had a knack for exploring formal spatial properties, siting, landscape design, and the use of basic, unrefined building materials to fit his houses into their natural surroundings. Turnbull was a local Jersey Boy, so he understood and was able to draw inspiration from a Jersey vernacular vocabulary. He loved exploring the concept of a “House within a House” or a continuation of interior space to the exterior. A few of his homes in particular display these concepts.
