Beach house in the middle of a tall forest

When picturing a beach house you usually assume it’s situated somewhere close to the beach, where you can see and admire the water and the sand. In this case you would be wrong. This beautiful contemporary summerhouse is situated in the middle of a forest that edges the road along the beach front. Building the house was a challenge because at first the site was almost entirely covered in mature trees. Most of them had to be removed in order to make room for the house but it was a sacrifice that the owners decided to live with.

The residence is separated into two volumes, for private and public spaces. The private area consists in bedrooms and a garage that are housed in two towers constructed as freshly sawn stumps of the trees that have been removed. The house has a compact look. However, it features an irregular design with interior spaces that seem to have been carved out of the freshly cut wood.
