This geometric beach home design with floating glazed upper floor created by Peru architect Luis Longhi of Longhi Architects is a lesson in art and architecture. This ultra modern oceanfront property sits among rolling sand dunes to the east, and rocky cliffs overlooking the Pacific to the west – a gorgeous all-natural landscape to embrace this modern style house. Interestingly, this floating property seems suspended in mid air, taking shape as a volume perched on pillars to generate a floating effect with a strong upper level and an open, alfresco base. Glass walls are a barely there boundary in between inside and out, opening onto outdoor entertaining areas at ground level and terraces overhead. This slope house program cascades down, with an artfully illuminated pool connecting architecture and coast line.
A set of heavy concrete stairs operates its way down the hillside, adding a robust, sculptural element to anchor the modern residence to the sandy ground.
The methods leads past the pool and to the big living and lounging deck, overlooking the seemingly endless shoreline.
Wood and concrete combine – an earthy palette of materials to complement this lovely organic setting.
And with this breathtaking beach often within effortless reach, the toughest choice you will have to make right here is regardless of whether to swim in the pool or in the ocean!
The major entrance is a modern volume, which sets the tone for the home’;s ultra modern interiors.
Echoing the exterior stairs, a set of measures leads into the living region with kitchen and dining room. We adore this remarkable built-in kitchen countertop / bar / table which extends up the wall to turn into into a wine rack – as a lot a sculptural element as it is a functional a single. What would you use this for?
Continue down that stairs to the sunken living area, where vibrant red upholstery tends to make this cool grey and white interior pop. This double height space is overlooked by a second floor loft, and illuminated with natural light spilling in by means of massive windows.
The raised consuming region puts diners at the best vantage point to take in views of interiors and the outdoors. A modern dining table is surrounded by sculptural, contemporary Panton chairs in white.
A glass hallway overhead leaves the space below visually open.
Enclosed in frameless glass panels which slide open to the deck, this living area has an alfresco feel with unobstructed beach views.
It’;s a fine line indeed among indoors and out.
As you move from the entrance, to the kitchen, to the living space, to the deck, you drop in levels. This vertical organization differentiates the otherwise open and connected interior.
The bathroom, like the rest of the home, boasts a quiet sophisticated style.
Modern day but natural, open yet private, this beautiful beach house has it all!
