The spectacular green lawn that is spread across the courtyard of the residence is a wonderful visual treat both from the interior and exterior and helps the house blend in with the natural setting of the region beyond its own borders. A vast foyer welcomes you with glee while the wooden paneling on the outside not only heightens the beauty of the structure but also acts as an energy-saving feature and regulates the temperature inside.
But there are lucky ones who already have their own summer house — I’m talking about this beautiful and relaxing condo in Iporanga Brazil. Actually it is a condominium for summer houses on Sao Paulo’s coast designed by Nitsche Arquitetos Associados.
All of the apartment’s architectural materials have been sensitively selected to add a contemporary feel to the apartment both contrasting and complementing the historic frontage of the historic building beneath. The main structure is clad in a lightweight silver and white Alucobond skin; limestone and Calcutta marble stonework and lime washed timber floorboards and decking complete the elegant design.
This creation from the MPR Design Group is an ultra modern penthouse apartment perched on top of an original Art Deco building above. The apartment boasts unbroken views of Bondi Bay and Beach. Angular windows and skylights allow the 180 square meters of living space to be bathed in masses of natural light.
This penthouse located on the top floor of the apartment development at150 Clarendon Street East Melbourne has some of the best views available in the city. The 360-degree panorama takes in the adjacent Fitzroy Gardens and vistas from Port Phillip Bay to the Dandenong Ranges. This elegantly designed penthouse is arguably one of the best in the country and undoubtedly one of the priciest reaching an eye watering $18.2 million at sale.
The interiors largely follow a sleek and almost minimalist trend that seems absolutely apt for the apartment while the completely neutral shades offer a serene setting. The large floral design on one of the walls in the living area presents an interesting and appealing contrast as well. The bedrooms sport modern furnishings and come loaded with plenty of accessories to charm upon entering the room and the kids’ bedroom seems to incorporate an extra dash of color here and there.
All of these add up to create effectively a zero-energy home that is as appealing to environmentalists as it is to interior designers. The interiors are split into well organized living dining and kitchen spaces that form one section while the bedrooms master suite and the bathrooms are housed at a different level. Sophisticated elegant and yet casual in its own refined fashion this is a beach house that is apt for every mood and all occasions.
