There must be something about sandy beaches and the use of concrete I hear you saying. You’re right. It’s something that we’ve been saying for awhile now. It’s a trend to bring the outdoors in; and it seems to be a trend to opt for exposed concrete walls that are good insulators (keeps you colder in summer and warmer in winter) and amazing eye-catchers.
