The formerly burnt and deserted Round Tower in Gloucestershire has been included by London architecture studio De Matos Ryan in a modern family home. The house has been built underground such as to not undermine the lone presence of historical monument dominating the landscape.
Crafted to allow its residents to enjoy a wonderful view of the distant Argo Saronic Sea and sporting a lovely roof garden and glass staircase it provides for a comfortable and classy retreat. The building designed by 314 Architecture Studio sports three single-floor apartments with each one of them offering a single master bedroom along with two other smaller ones. One single look at the building and you will notice the extravagant use of glass that accentuates its beauty while offering the residents panoramic views of the nearby sea along with providing for natural ventilation.
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.
The large sun terrace with a luxurious pool mean that you might end up spending more time outdoors than indoors! Of course the very design of the penthouse ensures that there are very few boundaries between the interiors and the world outside and the interiors with furniture in soft and neutral shades add to its beauty. This is all about living it up in style!
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.
