Small House Ocean Retreat A small Pacific Ocean retreat in Wesport, Washington. Photos and designed by Castanes Architects. Castanes Architectspacificretreat home by Steven Previous Post Next Post
This is soooooo amazing. What a great design, feel and flow! What is the square footage? Other photos of the inside are necessary to get the full flavor and sense workability. Please forward more photos when available and details, costs. How would one stay warm in the winter with all those windows? I realize a warmer climate would be a must and then there’s privacy!?!?
Very inspiring!!! I want to see MORE!
Love the dark and light with the primary accents!
I don’t know… This is so Bauhaus, LeCorbusier; Marseille Block, color blocking modernism that has seen its day. I suppose it is functional and has appeal for a certain type of artistic temperament, but to me it’s cold and has a dishonest or contrived feel to it where housing people are concerned; it feels like an office instead of a home. Homes are supposed to be homey. We are human beings and not commodities to be stored in warehouses. These things may start out looking nice (as a nursery school, maybe), but given a few years and they don’t age well. The thing with Tiny Houses is that with the years the wood will mellow and the Tiny House will become very cozy. Whereas these cement and metal proponents will eventually have to be taken down as eyesores that don’t blend into or with Nature. This style I see as a reaction to the flourishes of the Victorian era and so, to be different and be something new, they went in the opposite, more masculine direction. Also, after all of the wars, this was cheap, labor unintensive as opposed to Victorian (feminine) styling with lots of interior moldings and exterior gingerbread.
I love the ocean and the level of the home. I could certainly add my own touch to color. How peaceful it would be there.
Please more internal photos of this house. Its amazing.
