Sand and surf and stone

Posted on Thu, 7 Oct 2021 by midcenturyjo

Our Beach House at Mermaid represents a refined beach house design with a bold expression of form and materials. From the west orientated urban streetscape the façade responds to privacy and solar concerns by way of sliding timber screens set within white vertical walls and horizontal concrete floor and roof elements in a two storey form. The two storey form boldly cantilevers towards the street over feature stone walls and glass entry. Dense landscaping softens the built form and provides a unique arrival experience. Externally and internally the material palette is a composition of natural materials and textures including stone, concrete and timber set against white surfaces. Internally high ceiling and voids capturing light creates a variety of unique spaces.”

A new coastal design language. Modern, monolithic and strong. Beach House by Gold Coast based BDA Architecture.

What a dream. A lovely traditional home, rambling vines and lush lawns rolling down to the Hudson River. Views from almost every window, old floor boards, overstuffed sofas mixed with antiques and a garden room off the living space. Peaceful, serene luxury. Residence along the Hudson by John B. Murray Architect.

This Barcelona apartment with its contemporary clean lines, wonderful light and city views is elevated by the choice of modern sculpture and large art works. It’s the perfect example is big is good, cluttered is a bother.
