L-shaped House with Beach View by Nathan Good Architect

June 30, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

This L-shaped House with Beach View is designed by by Nathan Good Architect, located in Oregon beach.
Cannon Beach Residence is designed by Nathan Good Architect with sustainability in mind. It provides more energy that it consumes. That is possible because of 5kWh rooftop photovoltaic system and 12-inch-thick concrete walls. There are also solar-thermal tubes that provide hot water and a ground-source heat pump that warms and cools the air. The house is L-shaped and wrapped around Sitka spruce that’s 38 inches in diameter. Recycled materials were used during construction and the house is designed to last multiply generations. It perfectly blends into the forested hillside thanks to its sedum-sprouting green roof. One side of the house has views of Haystack Rock while the other – views of the beach. A lot of windows provide the house with plenty of the natural light.

This house in Laranjeiras, neighborhood located in the Southern Zone of Rio de Janeiro, is one of his latest works which combines both styles in one beach house. Ultra wide openings and imperceptibly transition between indoors and outdoors what make this very comfortable. Minimalism softened through wood surfaces and stone walls make the house design’s modern but not cold. 6 bedrooms with balconies are located on second floor creating great places for rest and catch sunrise views. First floor have kitchen and maids quarters at the one wing and dining room, living areas, bar and games room at the other.
