The secluded pool deck multiple terraces and additional balconies enhance the quality of life here as it is the greenery and fresh ocean breeze outside that truly make this home special.
The second edifice is the main house that contains the open plan space with the living kitchen and dining areas on the lower level and the private zones on the top floor while the third building houses the laundry and home studio. This not only gives a clear delineation of functionality for each structure but also allows the architects to make the most of the available space outdoors.
We love a house that combines local flavor with old-world inspiration and contemporary ergonomics without ever seeming out of place. The designed by inspace is one such fabulous residence nestled in the quiet seaside town of which is known for its relaxing ambiance and pine-covered cliffs.
A simple pathway and an irregular ramp shape the lovely entrance to the house where a large 4-meter-tall door in local Lapacho wood greets you gleefully. The interior is also draped in locally sourced Lapacho wood adding warmth and elegance to a contemporary setting that is otherwise dominated by white and other neutral hues.
Space is often the biggest issue in most modern homes with many of us looking to find that extra square footage that we feel would make all the difference. But when it comes to a lovely vacation home on the beach one does not really need a whole lot of room and even the smallest can fill your idyllic summer afternoons with unabated joy.
One of the unique challenges of building this lovely family retreat was the existing building code that prevented the house from being any taller than six feet above grade on the building’s uphill side.
With a spacious den bedroom bathroom and utility space the basement offers a private retreat for the family while connecting them to the forest landscape outside. It is the top floor that contains the living area kitchen dining space and two additional bedrooms along with a modest wooden deck.
