Stelle Architects

This low-key two-story house is sited on a classic ocean front site. The original house, slated for demolition, was built into the dune before current coastal construction standards requiring a much higher elevation. The goal was to keep the existing scale and dynamics of the site and design a residence that reflected the footprint and spirit of the original home. Materials for the new house include Alaskan cedar shingle panels interspersed with glass sections. The home has three levels: one for the owners, one for their guests, and one for living and dining. A simple glass and shingle pavilion overlooks a negative edge pool while a path from the garage leads through a natural seaside landscape along the pool and up to the house.

Solar control is achieved though the use of overhangs in the southern exposures. Extra thick walls allow for superior insulation, and a geothermal system is employed for cooling.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Find Your Design Style
Coastal: The peace of the sea makes itself at home in each room of your house. Your interiors pay homage to the deep blue waters, its inhabitants, the general locale, and worry-free living.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Take Your Headboard to New Lengths
Another wooden headboard with clever shelves. The curved top of this gives the natural material urban appeal.
Rebecca Heane added this to Elements of Contemporary Coastal Style
Use the lines of your furniture to evoke your coastal vibe. Although the only coastal colors in this room are in the painting, the design of the bed emphasizes the beachside mood with its wave-like headboard.
For the surfer dude with good design sense.
Becky Harris added this to 10 Ways to Go Coastal With a Modern Edge
By all means extend the rich texture palette to pieces of furniture, whether you choose a rattan chair, a live-edge bed frame or a Moroccan rug.
Becky Harris added this to The '70s Are Back. Can Ya Dig It?
Malibu surfer chic. Also coming from California is the laid-back style of old surf-shacky Malibu. My favorite description of Malibu in the 1970s was written by Rob Lowe in his memoir, Stories I Only Tell My Friends. He paints a picture so markedly different from movie moguls' blocking off beach access with their megamansions. Moroccan rugs and live-edge wood in an all-white room are exotic and organic updates on surfer and hippy style.
