Nothing is more appealing that a beautiful beach house and while those on the Malibu coastline are indeed a huge catch the located in the southwestern part of Los Angeles County in Manhattan Beach is equally appealing.
Of course in the quest for finding that bold new look one cannot go too far and needs to find the absolute right balance. The Penthouse at the in Toronto Canada does exactly that with its combination of the classic with the modern.
There is no such thing as a “typical” deck. Every living space has its own unique style shape and purpose. For example some homeowners may be looking for a small deck – something just slightly larger than a balcony – that’s big enough for a grill or perhaps a small café table and chairs. Others may be looking for a multi-tiered party deck large enough for a tables lounge chairs and perhaps a Jacuzzi.

While most modern homes and structures are at odds with nature and at times seem out of place the fits right in.
In fact the house is designed to be dynamic with reflective surfaces and natural light playing off the dwelling’s many angles to create a compelling living space. Check out the images below to see why Reflection of Mineral is equal parts residence and work of art. Be on the lookout…the interior is full of architectural surprises!
Different textures and elements were added to this with a koi pond on the north side along with some green around it. A small waterfall at the entrance welcomes you with elegance while a flowing sheet of water at the back separates the private pool area from the rest of the home.
The entire living space here is designed to emphasize on the ‘openness’ of the penthouse and the lavish use of floor-to-ceiling glass windows ensures that you have a panoramic view of the sea no matter where you turn. While on one side the penthouse offers some beautiful views of the blue on the other you can take a look at the city lovely city skyline even if it pales in comparison.
