Architecture is the focus in this modern marvel of a beach house with vistas of the Pacific Ocean and the Malibu seashore. These groovy digs are located in Manhattan Beach, California. This ergonomically designed residence has everything the home owner desires while maintaining the reflection of Southeast Asia in its design and execution.
The ground floor contains the covered parking area, a family room, home office, and a beach room. The middle floor is where the bedrooms are, and the top floor is the public area with the kitchen, dining room, and living room. That helps to maximize the ethereal views.
Different strains wood were used throughout the house including teak on the floors and for the staircase, mahogany for the doors and windows, and cedar slats for the ceiling.
