This contemporary luxury residence is placed on the steep hill slope facing the pacific ocean. The total area of the house is 6500 sq. ft. and almost a half of it (2500 sq. ft.) is a open-air living space with multiple entertainment areas, Jacuzzi, barbeque and ocean views, which is great considering the Costa Rican weather conditions. The private indoor facilities include master’s bedroom, junior bedroom, two guest bedrooms and caretaker’s quarters, each with separate bathroom. It’s perfect to accommodate a company of eight on vacation.
This unique house is located in Bodrum at the Southwest of Turkey. It was built by probably the most popular Turkish design studio – Global Architectural Development. The architecture of this house is outstanding, especially considering how many limitations the creators had to work around to implement the original design idea. The local authority restricts buildings larger than 75 square meters, which is why this house actually consists of three separate buildings connected by the central hall and that’s where the name comes from. The central lobby has floor to ceiling windows, providing it with panoramic view of the surrounding landscape and the bay. This is a very nice solution that sacrifices nothing to the obsolete architecture laws. Another lucky finding of this house is a roof covered by rainwater collectors, that make it look tremendous and of course in many cases make the external water supply unnecessary.
This unique house is located on the coast of Vestfold in the southern part of Norway. It was built as a summer residence and blends with the landscape greatly. Truth to say, it’s difficult to imagine that modern comfortable house could be situated on a terrain surrounded by rocks, but the designers from Jarmund / Vigsnæs AS Architects MNAL have implemented this idea. The house and terrace are partly built upon existing stone walls, other parts of the walls are made of stones from the blasting on the ground. The exterior is clad in wood and stone. As a whole, the house impressed us by its contemporary look, stylish pool and terrace which offer fascinating views of the water and rocks.
This huge contemporary house is located on the semi-desert coast of Australia’s Western Port Bay. It’s driveway faces a rather concise facade with sloping porch which gives the feeling that this house was created out of a hill. But this expression changes as soon as the one steps in. Extensive inner spaces frame wonderful views of the sandy flat and the ocean to the north from the house. House interior echoes with it’s outside look, in some ways sacrificing warmth to the practicality and contemporary look. However the wooden elements of decor and the fireplace in the focal point of the house make it a little more welcoming.
This house is situated on a picturesque location on the Pacific coast and designed to maximize the benefits of the surrounding countryside. It has huge windows, so that the ocean is visible from every room and the interior doesn’t lacks natural illumination. Interior design complements architecture very well; the main theme is the contemporary combination of stone and wood with a curved roof as a striking feature which implies original sloping ceilings too. Altamira Residence has everything to make you feel relaxed: apart from serene landscape which is ideal for walking there is a large swimming pool and Jacuzzi in the backyard.
