The modern beach houses feature lots of glass in their exteriors which allows to bring the indoors together with the beautiful surrounding views and create a sheltered space with the outdoor feel.
Universe Beach House
Universe Beach House by Tatiana Bilbao is an interesting structure. From afar it looks like nothing special and far from being luxurious but when a view of a round rootop swimming pool catches the eye it tranforms the look of this beach house entirely.
Surrounded with a wooden terrace this pool is the key element of the structure while the rocky green landscape that surrounds and partially disguises the view of the house looks alluring and simply beautiful.
This one was completed in 2009 by BKK Architects. The house has an angled shape which makes for interesting interior. It has a sloping wall at the back which contains an entry while the facade features glass walls that provide views of the green waterfront and a swimming pool completed with a deck.
The house is made of wood and stone units while the interior is finished with wood and sleek white walls. The bathroom window faces the swimming pool creating an illusion of a continuous tub.
K House got its name from being shaped as letter K which in turn is the first letter in owners’ family name. The angled house was designed by Ashton Raggatt McDougall Architects and features a garage, an outdoor living area, a home theater, a cellar and a storage.
The K House features an unusual color scheme for the beach retreat, which is commonly light, as it is painted dark gray with bright red accents in both exterior and interior.
