Prefabricated homes make life a lot easier for those looking to keep construction costs down even while ensuring that much of the work is done offsite. But another advantage of prefab homes is the speed that they bring to the development of a new residence; something that simply cannot be matched by on-site designs.
Viewed from the street the novel extension is almost invisible and it only becomes a part of the home’s visual once you step in. This was an essential component of the overall design as it kept the historic appeal of the house unaltered while the extension with glass walls and large floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors brought in ample natural ventilation.
An accent stone wall in the bedroom and an outdoor shower add to the textural contrast and elegance of the beach house while accents in blue and yellow add a dash of color to an otherwise neutral interior. Combining comfort with simple aesthetics and flowing form this is a beach house that makes the most of the 100 square meters of space on offer even as it turns the landscape around it into the real showstopper.
Nestled on a hillside lot and offering a view of the distant Atlantic the designed by Charles Rose Architects is more contemporary than rustic. Despite this clearly modern edge the elegant residence aims to be as ‘organic’ as possible with a cedar shiplap exterior and a smart green roof.
A tranquil retreat set against an idyllic backdrop that brings you close to nature and its ever-changing sights and sounds; this is definitely the image of a beautiful family retreat that most of us dream about.
