Endless summer

Down at the water's edge where the sand meets the grasses, down where the tang of salt hangs in the air and waves pound a melody on the shore, down on the edge of day dreams is a beautifully simple beach house. The main building is pared back and casual with everything you need for life on the beach. A place to check the break at sunrise, gather with friends, relax in the sun or the shade, celebrate the end of a great day on the beach all while the relentless waves keep reminding you that this is indeed paradise and just how lucky you are. And when it is time to turn your back on the water and retire for the night, a separate sleeping hut provides the perfect retreat. Dreams are made of this.

Another amazing home by Martín Gómez Arquitectos in Punta del Este, Uruguay.

Can you imagine watching the rain drip off that overhanging thatch during a summer storm, half asleep?

Hi MidcenturyJo! Love the place but also a quick heads up, the place is called Punta del Este (with an "e" at the end, not an "a")...I would not want you to make the fancy-schmancy people who inhabit that fine (and very, very ritzy) part of the world angry ;)

Let the sun shine in...and bring along the fresh air too! Such a cool space & location.

Thanks Pam. Typo fixed. That's what happens when you blog in a hurry on the train :) Thankfully I had't got it wrong in the other posts about Punta del Este.

Do they want to do a house swap in Brooklyn? Wow, what a setting.
