Coastal Home Is Raised for Flood Protection

One of Cobb Architects' goals was to make this home feel as connected and low to the ground as possible while still achieving the appropriate level of protection above the high flood zones in Charleston, S.C. The home achieves this with a unique yet beautiful proportion that keeps it safe and protected.
