A cleft between the high roofs and the walls allows for free passage of air and light into all the levels and there is ample natural ventilation. The architecture relies on minimal use of walls and they have been erected only in places where they are necessary with glass extensively and expansively filling up in most other places. From the highway the house appears too short and lying on its backdrop is the large beautiful ocean.

A lovely home in the countryside – this was the dream of the Italian couple They always wanted to go back to the countryside where both of them grew up.

The glass material used for its construction is 6 to 7 mm thick. The material can be specially heated during the winter which is one of the best and most demanded characteristic feature.

Wooden ceilings make the whole area so admirable and so do the brick walls. Metal rods that hold the lighting props which run across on the ceilings are kept exposed. The flooring looks as if it has been made to reflect the ceiling while the pillars sport a rustic look and the multi-paned windows have helped it maintain the elegance.
That obviously is the ideal way to demonstrate how renovations can be done with proper planning and abundant imagination and they set about the project by changing the floor of the house into an all-black surface. Beautiful carpets and colorful furniture were laid in the living room to offer a vivid and playful look.
A stylish and compact little bookshelf was carved out on the wall adjacent to a stylish sleek and modern rectangular fireplace. The splashes of bright orange here and there on the unique stools and couch cushions along with the subtle use of orange in the patio furniture that is visually connected to the living space ensures that there is no sense of blandness in this modern makeover.
