With a rugged coastline on one side that sees arguably some of the roughest weather on the planet and a beautiful forest on the other the cabin is perfectly placed to make the most of the amazing views on offer. This is precisely why Design Base 8 and Omar Gandhi Architect opted for a three-story structure that towers over the forest canopy with elegance!
The revitalized ground floor now features a smart entry reception room kitchen and a Japanese-style home office / sitting zone that overlooks the garden outside. Large sliding glass doors bring in a flood of natural light even as a lovely white backdrop gives the interior a refined look that borders on minimalism.
It is here that one finds a beautiful sensible and contemporary renovation of a barn house that offers a marvelous window into the breathtaking landscape in which it sits.

The most attractive aspect of this gorgeous contemporary residence is undoubtedly the stunning sea views that it offers thanks to the great vantage point it enjoys. Making the most of the scenic backdrop was one of the intentions that shaped the new living area that opens up towards the coastline even as the street façade offers complete privacy.
The spectacular pool intersects with the house and stretches into the living area with a wonderful U-shaped deck offering plenty of space for outdoor parties and a relaxing sojourn.
