Avenue Residence In California Integrating Traditional Coastal Design
The Avenue Residence by Christian Rice Architects is a case of maximizing space on a generally limit property through the integration of exterior living zones. Situated in Coronado, California, USA, the house includes a secured entryway patio and secured raise yard that connect with the open-plan incredible room at the front and back through pocketing glass entryways. The variety of open and encased spaces make a lot of chances for family gatherings and outdoor unwinding.
Exuding a rustic-contemporary vibe, this narrow dwelling is highly welcoming: “A two-story outdoor stone fireplace is constructed on the detached rear guest house, providing a visual focal point throughout the home. The stone fireplace is further accented at night as recessed lights embedded into the hearth provide illumination. The aesthetics of the home take inspiration from contemporary ‘barn’ design seen in the Northern California wine country, and integrates these concepts with more traditional coastal design to create a unique blend of coastal and contemporary architecture.” Enjoy the virtual gallery below and feel free to share your thoughts regarding the overall design of this project.
