This led to the creation of a very unique house that uses uniquely crafted wooden blinds that sync with the rest of the home and shut out the outside world when needed. (OR rather when the prying eyes are not needed) Solar-water heating cross-ventilation rainwater harvesting features and natural lighting make up the array of green features that help the building stay sustainable. On the inside the three-floor house are covered in a fine balance of wood and concrete to offer perfect ambiance.
Sculptures that are made out of glass and stone bestow an artistic outlook to this contemporary design and the extravagant use of glass in the form of floor to ceiling windows gives those inside unobstructed views. While the lower level sports the living space and the dining area the upper level finds space for the entire owner’s suite which includes a library a piano room a master suite a refreshing spa and an inviting sundeck. A wonderful merger of form and function…
If you wish to own a home that takes you back in time even if it is only for a tad bit then this is a fine option. Especially considering that it is a home in the beautiful city of Melbourne. Nestled in the resort island of Sentosa in Singapore this is all about merging smart features of design with a modern retreat that will offer its residents some panoramic views without compromising on their privacy.
This beautiful beach house was meant for architect David Berridge who has spent the last 30 years in New York City. But the fond memories of childhood on the beaches in New Zealand has meant that the Otama Beach House has been designed to replicate that feeling and nostalgia as the architect intends to now spend some time down under.
With the structure of the home itself occupying all the area of the plot available for construction the designers went ahead and incorporated a vertical garden that allows the residents of the home to grow some green in the limited space.
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.

The lower level is fully equipped with an expansive chef’s kitchen formal dining area and informal entertainment and living spaces. The penthouse opens onto a stunning 90 square meter patio with glass a windbreak to shelter the family and guests as they take in the awe-inspiring inner city views.
