Modern beach house
What can be better than contemporary white villa on the ocean shore? Beach Road Residence 2 is fresh and amazing project from architectural agency Hughes Umbanhowar Architects. This building is located in Jupiter Island, Florida. White facade of the building makes a striking contrast with the color spectrum of the beach. This house is conveniently located between the coastline and the road that runs along northern border of the island and occupies an area of 3600 square feet. Interiors were also designed in white color and you can find there interesting accessories like bright glass baubles or thematic paintings. The residence can be an ideal shelter and elegant island villa at the same time. It's like a ship that is always ready to sail.

The people?s desire to live closer to the ocean sometimes incites them to build houses on the most unsuitable places. For example, this unusual house in Australia was built on a long narrow site, which occupies 10m wide x 50m deep across the road from the ocean. The authors of the project are designers from BDA Architecture. Undoubtedly, the plot size influenced the layout of the house. The front part includes a garage and entrance at ground level, a living area is located on the first floor and a master suite - on the second floor. Two terraces provide beautiful view. Courtyard with pool is very small, but functional, cozy and comfortable as it is safely protected from the winds.
