Relaxing Seaside House by Hughes Umbanhowar Architects

Many years ago I had the chance to visit Sweden. It is a great country with wonderful people although it is said that the Nordic people are cold and distant. Its landscapes have charmed me. The beautiful views created by the North Sea and the rocky land overwhelmed all my expectations.

One of the things that have impressed me were the Swedish houses built near the shore of the sea, on the hard rocks with great huge windows which offered wonderful views of the sea.This relaxing Seaside house, designed by Hughes Umbanhowar Architects reminds of all these beautiful memories. They designed a great house dominated by the purity and refreshing white color that cover its exterior and interior too. Another dominant aspect of this building is the huge floor to ceiling windows that increase the amount of natural light inside and offers you splendid views of the sea and the Jordan Island where it is located.

Its terrace will offer you wonderful moments of relaxation and privacy while its interior stairs gives you the feeling that you are living on a real boat.

The swimming pool located on the upper side of the house, above the kitchen represents an attraction point. You can watch your life partner swimming while you are cooking a delicious meal in the kitchen.

The modern white furniture and the paintings on the walls and the decorative objects match perfectly with this seaside environment.
