The Seadrift Residence designed by San Francisco-based CCS Architecture may look like another modern house by the lake but we e assure you it is nothing like the run of the mill contemporary home. The stylish and sleek structure is located in Stinson Beach North California and is nestled amidst beautiful hilly region that has the distinct topography typifying this region of the west. The 1900 sq ft residence is a cantilevered structure that offers unobstructed view of the surrounding area while its spacious interiors can comfortably hold a family of six.
There are several architectural elements combined here as its architects Pencil Office had taken up the challenge of creating a lavish retreat that will also encompass several eco-friendly features and will offer both beautiful views of the landscape while guarding privacy of those behind the giant floor-to-ceiling glass walls.
Maybe it is just nostalgia or maybe the fact that one can never go back in time revisit the memories of the past but everyone of us is fond of those ‘wonder years’ of the past. And this home in Melbourne might well have that same allure for many who might look back at times that were simpler but also happier.
The penthouse opens on to a further 400 square meters of outdoor space with a garden heated swimming pool and entertainment areas across four terraces. The 297.3 meter Eureka Tower in Melbourne’s Southbank precinct was the world’s tallest residential tower at the time of its completion in 2006. The building has since been surpassed in height by two developments in Dubai but the Eureka is still an astonishing achievement of high-rise construction dominating the city’s skyline.
One of the most striking and definitely bright feature of the home as you step right in is the beautiful fire orb that is housed in the living room and rotates like some space-age accessory to ensure that it spreads warmth equally all across the room.
