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.
The minimalist home as the name suggests still adheres to the idea of sleek and well-defined lines but it does so in a unique fashion. The central hall of the home is a seven-sided polygon and the perfect use of white concrete ambient shades wooden flooring and glass windows that allow for plenty of natural ventilation have made the home as aesthetic to look at as any other modern home.
This indeed looks like a ‘Glass House’ surrounded by green as the vast floor-to-ceiling glass windows and the translucent glass frames that demarcate space on the interior ensure that you have unobstructed views and plenty of natural ventilation.
The idea here is to create a that mixes form with function and yet stand out from the pack. And to achieve this they have used a rectangular box-like template with this small house that is set 100 miles south of the city of Lima.
The home is surrounded by beautiful forest area and to give its denizens the best possible view along with complete privacy (which is not to find in this part of the woods) the architects have used glass and wood extensively to create a sustainable and stylish structure.
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.
The outdoor wooden deck holds the promise of some lovely evenings. The strategic placement of the exterior lighting makes for an enjoyable entertainment space without being overly bright. The flush fixtures make for an unobtrusive and clean look when they are not in use. The clever use of plaster and wood for the facade ensure that you have the privacy that you require. Blending in the contemporary with the classic and nature with lavish lifestyle this house is the complete package.
