Inspiration from architect:

It is a 12 ft by 110 ft wall which formalizes the line between the cultural landscape of the fishing cove to the east, from the natural landscape of the wild ocean to the west. An absolute, horizontal datum line at the top-of-concrete mirrors roof line and ground line in elevation. The east facade feels paper-thin and vulnerable, while the windward west facade puts its muscular shoulder to the wind with a concrete bump.
