Virginia Beach Residence

This 12,000 SF ocean front residence is located in Virginia Beach, VA.  The home boasts a theater, sauna, enormous third story roof deck, and a two-story grand room with a panoramic ocean view.  Strict height limits, FEMA codes, and a tight lot were just a few of the challenges posed to the nbj design team.  A four-foot crawl space with flood vents not only helps to preserve the safety of the home, but also raises the first story above the dune for an uninterrupted view of the water. The home uses geothermal heat pumps for the HVAC and utilizes natural materials such as clay tiles, brick, stone and wood for a stunning environmentally friendly home.
