This unenviable task was left to the creative folk at PAD Studio and they have come out with flying colors that sport a distinctly green tinge! The gorgeous New Forest is a soothing sight for sore eyes and transports you into a serene and almost Zen-like atmosphere.
With the majestic Pacific making up the backyard quite literally this Malibu house indeed is an absolute dream. In fact the ocean gently rushes underneath the cantilevered home during high tide. Large glass windows in the living room and the bedroom offer unabated views of the ocean which is just a few steps away. And what does all this opulence and extravagance cost?
To achieve this glass has been employed extravagantly throughout the residence to create a seemingly transparent look. With beautiful lighting and floor-to-ceiling glass windows dominating the façade the home blends in beautifully with its green surroundings.
It is not often that you can brag about next door neighbors like Leonardo DiCaprio Demi Moore Bruce Willis or Angelina Jolie! And Matthew Perry is another name that now has joined this elite and exclusive Malibu club.
Giving a traditional home a contemporary overhaul is a task far more challenging than designing a brand new residence from scratch. The pre-imposed constraints often make the work of architects that much more difficult. Stephenson ISA Studio though has done a commendable job in turning an old and dull residence in Manchester UK into a fabulous modern home that exudes transparency and class. One of the major elements of design that altered the look of the existing structure was the extensive use of glass.
The final stage came and upon completion the house-boat was launched (disproving any technological opinions that it may not float) and towed through the San Francisco Bay to the place where it now proudly resides.
Big bright spaces exposed to a heavy amount of daylight catch on a feeling of luxury while double-height spaces have this larger-than-life feel to them. When a double-height glass room contains colors they are subdued by the scale and openness. Carefully chosen furniture and design details cushions and even flower can brighten up a cold space and offer an elegance reminding you of the simple joys of life – like colors.
