The J&M House is a hybrid building typology that combines the characteristics of an art gallery, holiday accommodation, and a residential home within an idyllic sub tropical setting.
This multifunctional structure serves as a low-maintenance beachside residence, while also presenting a sophisticated art gallery space to showcase a large private collection of artworks.
On an exposed hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the house captures breezes and views while protecting from wind and rain, to create a shelter for daily life in the sub-tropics.
With private hotel-style rooms and communal indoor and outdoor areas linked by a central gallery, the J&M House is ideal for hosting large gatherings and holidays with an extended family of sons, daughters, and grandchildren. The building is perfectly suited to the sub-tropical climate and offers its residents a unique experience, surrounded by art in their beachside home.
