Fabulous Beach House With Zen Inspired Interiors In Corona Del Mar

modern-zen-house-exterior

Brandon Architects in collaboration with Patterson Custom Homes designed this house with zen-inspired interiors located on the Flower Streets of Corona Del Mar, California. This dwelling was designed to maximize every square foot that it sits on in this long and narrow lot. The three-story home boasts 2,921 square feet of livable space and includes four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, a courtyard, third-floor roof deck and covered cabana along with an attached two-car garage.

The material finishes of the home were designed by Lindye Galloway, and both the interiors and exteriors are designed to have a modern yet zen feel as this is a vacation home for the owners who primarily reside in the mountains. Stylistically the homeowners wished to bring in some of the rustic yet modern design elements that they love about their home in the mountains to create a truly unique take on their beach house in California.

This theme carries to the exterior most notably with the home’s siding, which includes red cedar wood planks that were crafted with the shou sugi ban technique, a Japanese weatherproofing technique that originated in the 18th century. The technique involves charring the wood surface with fire, and after it has been charred it is cooled, cleaned, and oiled to create the final finish.

What We Love: This fantastic beach house retreat offers its inhabitants a modern design aesthetic with zen-inspired interiors. We are especially loving the clean lines of the kitchen, with its white marble contrasting with the warm wood of the cabinetry. The outdoor courtyard is also a fabulous design, an idyllic spot to lounge with family and friends and enjoy the sunny Southern California weather.

Finally! It’s coming into summer and have been waiting for smaller houses to get ideas before the season hits. Thank you for posting this one. Love the clean lines and simplicity of the look.
Would also suggest some small (1500 to 2200 sq. ft.) actual beach houses to get us excited. With the virus outbreak I would anticipate many families will stay local and what better place than the beach!

Why would they box the range off like that?? Completely breaks up the kitchen work space and what are you supposed to do with the handles of the pots that are on the outside burners?

Where’s the Zen? All I see is a very contemporary (driven by various design cliches), very expensive house.
