A beautiful space for the garden has been set aside towards the east of this magnificent residence. Interiors are well furnished in accordance with design suggested by studio OKHA. The residence features a spectacular living area decorated with post-modern kind of furniture and expensive carpets. Corners of wall are smooth-edged and rooms are separated by double thick walls. All elements co-exist here in harmony says a correspondent of OKHA Interiors.
The basic layout for this residence resembles that of the Carl Fisher Estate completed in 1926 broadly split into three sections – main house guest pavilion and service section. The main house is composed of living rooms bedrooms and a glass ventilated area giving an unobstructed view to beautiful large pool and the lagoon lying close to the house.
Located on a hillside the modern Korean house is home to a family with four children who needed a comfortable creative space to grow. The creative interior design features the ground level social areas and the upstairs bedrooms while a fantastic feature ties it all together – a huge wooden staircase with nooks and integrated bookshelves that also serves as a viewing platform for a projection screen. The Panorama House is a dream home for children and adults alike.
Moreover wood acts like an air conditioner and essentially maintains a cool atmosphere inside the house all round the year. All rooms are cross ventilated and utilize coastal breeze from the nearby ocean. The site is really calm and tranquil which is indispensable for elder ones. Automated windows provide enough privacy and there are provisions for rain water harvesting. The house is designed with an eye to utilize as much daylight as possible to minimize the power bill.
In the initial phase the architects from Scott Allen have completed 12 spectacular homes all within 2000 square feet to 4000 square feet area. But the site could occupy as many as 75 residential sites. The layout of the residences is marvelous as well as modest and conforms to traditional Pacific design. All units exhibit an aesthetic outlook and have been designed giving priority to utility.
By choosing a color palette that would compliment the surroundings, the architects dissolved the boundaries between indoors and outdoors and prolonged the dynamic coastline inside. An open floor plan allowed the creation of an L-shaped cooking/living/entertaining zone open to the outside deck and swimming pool. And also check out the Bloom Chair by Kenneth Cobonpuere featured a while back on Decoist – it looks amazing in this house!
Spread over an area of more than 17000 sq ft this residence is more like a palace. Carlos Prio-Touzet and Jacqueline Gonzalez of Touzet Studio are the designers who conceptualized its architecture and the project was completed in October 2008.
