Colorful glazed concrete blocks brighten the wall as visitors approach the front door of this modern beach house. Underfoot, large concrete pavers are situated in a bed of loose river pebbles, carving out a walkway.
To separate the home's front entrance from the highway, designers built concrete walls to frame a small courtyard, using polygal and steel panels to create a bit of transparency on the side of the carport and as a small accent on the street side. Now, the entry circulation comes parallel to the driveway on the street side with bright red doors which match the front door and visually call visitors and clarify the entry sequence.
Modern Mountain Hillside Home With Warm Cedar Exterior and Flat Grassy Roof Sections
The house emerges from the hillside land with progressively stepping, flat, grassy rooflines. The exposed concrete, cedar and steel materials speak to its “built” nature—original and honest, rather than imitative of the natural surroundings. A butterfly roof capping the topmost level provides visual interest to the “cascading box” design while referencing the uplift of nearby mountain ranges.
New Modern Backyard with Defined Entertainment Spaces
Originally, this historic home's backyard contained a swimming pool that was damaged beyond repair, so after filling in the pool, homeowners wanted a fresh, new look. Designers helped the homeowners come up with a color concept, and began work on their New Modern design by defining entertainment spaces. In one corner, a custom barbecue pit with a concrete island makes the space perfect for grilling. In another, an intimate conversation corner welcomes guests. A putting green is the focal point of the space, but the central living space is this elegant sitting area created from sustainable furniture that matches the couple's eco-friendly lifestyle.
Modern Stonehurst Kitchen With Frosted Glass Cabinets and Sleek Marble Island
The sleek surfaces in this modern kitchen slide through the space creating a smooth and pleasing look. Gray marble repeats throughout the kitchen showcased by the island. Stainless steel appliances and frosted glass finish the modern appeal.
As seen on HGTV's House Hunters Renovation, a pair of floating vanities are the perfect addition to this master bathroom. Sleek, square mirrors complement the strong lines in the space, while the built-in shelving is as visually appealing as it is functional.
