Herzelia Pituah House 4 is a large contemporary retreat, designed by Pitsou Kedem Architects near the Mediterranean coast in Israel. The house provides high connection with nature and the nearby beach due to extensive glazing and a large number of open areas to spend time outdoors. Structure of the house is made of concrete and wood with lots of glass. Its interiors are bright and open with modern furnishings and a clear separation between entertainment and private areas. The open living plan allows not only to enjoy the beauty of the sea shore from inside the house, but also gives to the exterior of the house a very unusual charming look, especially during the night when all that is going on inside, it becomes visible from the outside.
Hot Water Beach House is a small one-storey house, located on the east coast of the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand. The house was designed by architect Stevens Lawson. The house design consists of two parts connected by a glass corridor, that helps to protect the courtyard from the strong winds from the ocean, as well as to create a more cozy and secluded atmosphere. The facade was made of special treated cedar, which could be also met in the interior design along with oak and simple plywood. The main master bedroom and living areas are stretched out along the beach frontage and connected with open terrace.
