Minimalist Project "Seaside Oasis"This minimalist design is for a family of 5 who like to entertain. The space is light and airy with vaulted ceilings and whites in many textures. The use of black accents brings balance to the space and makes it feel more modern. This home is situated by the sea and it is important to note that the view is one of the main focal points of the space. A wall of sliding glass doors out to the deck gives a great view from the main living room, dining, and kitchen. The most important element of this minimalist design was to enhance the feeling of being outdoors.
I wanted to create an indoor outdoor living experience which is why the living room is attached to the patio with expansive multi-sliding doors. Everything is uniform and symmetrical in order to enhance a feeling of peace and calm.
Here you can see how the living space is connected to the outdoors and the natural elements that have been brought inside.
I designed the fireplace to go all the way to the ceilings to draw attention to the soaring gable roof with raw wood beams that are both structural and aesthetically pleasing. Clean lines and symmetry are in keeping with minimalist design and added bohemian and coastal touches for the location.
