This soft contemporary home in California strikes that essential poise between form and functionality. While modern in both design and outlook the home is not uber-futuristic and does not use excessively sleek design both on the inside and on the outside.
The inner rooms and the outside display carefully handled details warm-colored wooden paneling touches of color thin timber elements as blinds and facade decoration a smooth wood paneled ceiling in the kitchen slender steel trusses painted white in the rooms and classic accents of marble for the kitchen working areas.
Designed by Juma Architects the home has a wonderful first floor that is defined by its extensive and extravagant use of glass in the form of floor-to ceiling glass windows. The entire floor can be used either as a single flowing space or one can create several rooms using in-built partitions. While the use of the glass allows for lovely views of the sea not too far away the infinity pool simply takes the experience to a whole new level.
Considering the flashy nature and the amazing designs that modern houses are sporting of late it really is not easy to fabricate a home that will astonish you and dazzle with sheer splendor. Yet this wonderful modern house in Caesarea Israel is really something ‘special’ and the moment you lay your eyes on it you cannot but help fall in love with its well-defined plan sleek look amazing use of glass and daft integration of metal into the structure.
It seems like modern designers are becoming more and more innovative when it comes to providing both amazing views be it from the terrace of a lovely contemporary home or from a condo that has a city skyline for backdrop.
The ergonomic and effective use of floor-to-ceiling glass windows means there are plenty of wonderful views that are on offer and all of them are completely unobstructed along with some great natural ventilation that enhances the interior. The shades of the wooden flooring and the décor are kept in close sync so that visual appeal is never lost.
But the most distinctive aspect of the home is the openings that are specifically created to ensure that vegetation pretty grows ‘through’ it unabated. While the cube-like shape of the houses confirms with the current design trend it is the completely transparent and visually appealing ‘glassy’ lower level that steals the show.
