Beach house design
The house is secured against the power of the ocean with a steel frame work. Materials were chosen for their strength and durability against the salt water environment. Natural ventilation maximizes the ocean breezes, limiting mechanical cooling. Photovoltaic cells, hot water panels and geothermal heat pumps capture natural energy, reducing energy demand.
The green building includes a main unit and guest interiors, garage for two cars and an outdoor swimming pool, surrounded by a wooden patio, blending the nature with modern interior design ideas. Simple interior design and decor are enriched by warm wood and brighten up with light decorating colors.
Modern house design by Stelle Architects demonstrates a non-invasive approach, inspired by indigenous forms and materials. Natural materials, used for interior design and decor, create pleasant environment. Thoughtful, simple and elegant modern house design respects the beauty and fragility of the natural landscape.
Sustainable design and green building principles are blended with modern interior design ideas and decor in simple and elegant style, offering a comfortable, low-maintenance eco home for green living and pleasant lifestyle.
