Today we will show the breathtaking 360 house located on the Oregon Coast, a project by Boora Architects. I believe that by now you guys already know that I absolutely love houses with huge glass windows and beautiful views. So today I have one more breathtaking home with those features. This house has an amazing glass and steel structure, it is a gorgeous transparent box. Layout, materials, colors and the use of white oak is inspiring. Certainly a great place to live.
Make sure to check out Boora Architects website for further information about this and other inspiring projects. See you next week. :)
Description from the architects: The design directive for this private retreat on Arcadia Beach was simple: the site is ruled by the sea, the landscape and the climate, and the homeowners wanted to keep it that way. So the designers pared away the external architecture, leaving a thick slab of grassy coast floating above glass walls.
On the main level, the kitchen, storage and bathroom are pulled to the core, freeing exterior walls from obstruction. As a result, 360º unimpeded views to the ocean, the beach, the sky and the forest saturate all living spaces. A spacious, sheltered deck is punched in the west elevation; sliding doors open wide to create continuous flow between living and dining areas.
We found this house at Contemporist.
