When you think of a beautiful beach house the image of a setting like is probably not the first thing that springs to mind. That is not so much a comment on the house itself but the images on display here which just to present a sky very different from the ‘clear and sunny’ images that we are often used to.
This stylish and warm apartment conceived by Fertility Design creates a flowing work space that is integrated with the rest of the house visually and yet can provide solitude and silence when needed. The designers achieved this by using retractable glass walls that separate the home office area from the living space.
The top floor is pretty much cantilevered and wrapped up in a black zinc cladding and the use of extravagant floor-to-ceiling glass windows ensures that there is a wonderful 270 degree view of the Bay area. The interiors are truly spacious simple in their constitution and completely uncluttered.
The generous use of glass has been attributed to the lush green surroundings and how the clients asked for a design that offers gorgeous views of this natural terrain. The most interesting and appealing aspect of the home though is the stunning spiral staircase at the heart of the structure which just seems to enrich the look of the interiors several fold along with the dazzling chandeliers.
The area separated by the moving glass walls also contains a library and space for children’s activity room with a huge whiteboard on one of the walls. By using the glass doors the living space can be separated from this area as well and hence the noise can be kept out whenever needed while still keeping an eye on the kids!
