VIRGINIA BEACH RESIDENCE contemporary-home-office


With this 10,000 sq. ft. private residence, located in Virginia's stunning coastline, GRADE's objective was to tailor spaces to suit the client family's daily activities and contemporary lifestyle. Completed in 2009, the house's broad elevation and beautiful natural surroundings complement its bright, classic exterior.
Indoors, spaces are equally airy, with the house's cross-axial layout giving way to distinct spaces that are also visually accessible to each other - allowing the family to engage in separate activities while simultaneously providing a sense of connectivity and togetherness. The interiors mark a departure in style due to formal elements presented by the architectural layout, classic molding and regal exposed framework.
