Yamamori Beach House Design
Beach House Design: This is the Yamamori Architect beach house design located in Shima-city, Mie prefecture, Japan. Fishing boats return home from the ocean at the other end of the bay and the contrast between the ocean view and surrounding trees is inspiring. the beach house was designed for a client that will not live there but who needs to come and enjoy the water occasionally so it was built with that in mind, less home, more beach house.
Road Considerations: The Yamamori Architect team was presented with several difficulties on the project including a path that runs between the parking area and the home as well as the public road just beyond that. To overcome these design considerations a floating platform was built around the front and sides of the property at a level that matches the top of the wall and gate surrounding the parking area of the beach house.
Cooling Materials: From the front of the beach house the appearance flows together more smoothly as a result, even if the stairs look like they lead into a wall. Overall I like what Yamamori has done within the confines of preexisting design challenges. The bare cement walls inside the house are not for everyone, they give off a coolness in both look and design, but as a non live-in beach house it serves it's purpose exceptionally well.
More Pictures: Here are a few more of the pictures from the beach house project designed by Yamamori. It's an interesting design which is built to solve some very specific challenges.
Spectacular Design: Architects from A-cero decided white was to be the main focus of all home decor in order to provide clarity to all interior areas. A relaxing atmosphere was the desired effect and I think they succeeded in spectacular form. SotoGrande Home design by A-Cero architects featuring a large pool and amazing sun deck on the roof.
Roof for Entertaining: The swimming pool and expansive recreation areas are perfect for celebration or social events. The furniture was also designed by A-cero and it includes modern pieces in white and beige as well as woods. Dark wood breaks the white color in some areas but it wasn't overly done and the result is excellent.
Additional Photographs: The owners have given the home a style of its own with home decor goodies that include a Piet Hein lamp and the chair set in the games room. This is a very functional house and I'm hard pressed to find something I dislike this time around, besides the fact that I don't own it. My favorite feature hands down is the use of roof space, pure awesome.
