Modern architecture is all about sleek and well-defined lines that produce flowing interiors which are easy on the eye. While many of the beach houses are going for that ultra-transparent look which tends to use glass extensively Lima-based design studio Javier Artadi Arquitectos have gone for a more balanced and ‘boxed’ approach.
The 2200 feet home sports a living room dining space a spacious terrace and a pool and each of these is visually integrated with the other leading to interiors that seem both spacious and naturally connected. The ergonomic and unconventional décor on the inside also give the home an exceptional look. The smart use of glass ensures that the home’s owners still get wonderful view of the sands and the waves as they wake up each morning.
Clad lavishly the house shouts out luxury while also offering a classic and stylish look thanks to its wooden surfaces. It was designed to offer the best view of the ocean with the public area the kitchen dining room and living room all set onto the top floor. The middle floor sports the bedrooms which also offer a wonderful view while providing the necessary privacy and the bottom floor consists of parking area and beach room along many more.
That does not mean the indoors are bland by any means whatsoever. In fact the home itself compliments the surroundings wonderfully well and the extensive use of glass ensures that you have ample views of both the reservoir itself and some lovely landscape of the San Gabriel Mountains.
The use of wood has been smart and trendy and complements perfectly the large portions of glass both in its texture and in its varying shades. The spacious master bedroom and the master bath along with the modern kitchen that is both contemporary in function and classic in form give this home a balanced look. With green building materials and energy-saving insulation and heating methods the renovated home is all about smart sustainability.
The main rectangular structure is enhanced by sleeping and service spaces that sport the same form factor and add a sense of symmetry to the beach house. Warm and tranquil lighting along with the use of refreshing colors and shades make this a balanced boxed delight.
The cantilevered roofs along with the lavish use of floor-to-ceiling glass windows ensure that there is plenty of natural ventilation along with some lovely views of the green that lay outside. While the common areas and the sitting space provides for some lovely views the bedrooms offer contrasting privacy which ensure that you have the best of both worlds.
