Virtually bringing the ocean indoors with the extensive use of glass walls and windows every room in this grand house has been designed to offer unabated and sweeping views of the vast Pacific making a stay here an absolute dream. Designed by Horst Architects along with Aria Design the exquisite residence encourages you to spend more time outdoors than inside!
The extravagant home features a two-level swimming pool with waterfall and a sleek minimal outdoor fireplace that is flanked by plush modern seating options in pristine white. A large glass railing offers safety without blocking the breathtaking scenery on view while a stylish pergola on the far side offers ample shade on a sunny California day.
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. As with other properties before this Beach House on Long Island is majestic warm and inviting all at once. Not to mention the house has a little bit of zaniness that makes it even more appealing.
An open-plan living area kitchen and dining space occupy the lower level of the house while the private quarters are housed on the top floor. Several comfy nooks and sitting areas that offer unabated framed views of the outdoors are cleverly incorporated throughout the house.
Presenting an interior that is detached from the chaos outside this unique flamboyant home celebrates serenity and luxury. Located in the busy LoHi neighborhood of Denver the project features an exceptional lower level that is partially submerged giving the first floor an elevated appearance.
The lower level is clad in chic pristine white with a living room dining area and a fabulous kitchen connected in an open floor plan. Hand-scraped oak floors and pops of color here and there perfectly complement this glossy white lacquered look.
A young family with a young vision–these are the people who live in the Echo Beach house in Vancouver. Seen as a sustainable building the house allows for a green wall install if the owners will ever fancy it and is solar ready. But the feature that strikes us most is the expansive use of concrete not only to strengthen the whole structure of the house but also for its ease of maintenance and the overall wow factor it gives the whole interior.
