The house has the advantage of having unobstructed sea views and sunlight. The house and its outdoor areas face south, with linear elements directing all focus towards the Sea. The richness of the space due to the materials and its composition create an authentic complexity, adding to its luxurious yet contemporary image.
The immediate relationship between the inside and the outside translates into a transparent design, allowing views and light to flow into the interior. Full height glazing allow light into the interior making the space brighter and create a more vibrant atmosphere, while allowing sea views.
The house comprises of an open plan living room and dining room, semi open plan playroom and office, separate kitchen area, outdoor relaxation areas and dining areas, a swimming pool as well as an interior garden. Double height living areas, gardens and entrance give the house a feeling of supreme luxury.
The First Floor includes three double ensuite bedrooms, a master bedroom (including a bathroom & a walking closet). The basement includes a capacious parking area for two cars, spacious storage areas, a laundry room, a mechanical room and a maid’s quarter
An interior garden, as well as green zones along the whole of the perimeter, is only some of the ways we used to create a transparent design and bring nature into the interior. With the help of these open spaces, not only we bring light into the interior, but foster a sense of harmony, creating an atmosphere of pure relaxation.
The combination straight clean lines, luxurious materials, and the addition of nature gives the building a natural and contemporary feeling, yet keeps its luxurious image.
Directing focus towards the Sea
The primary concept is to direct the focus towards south (hence towards the sea) in order to have unobstructed sea views and maximum sunlight.
