Boora Architects designed this beach house as a glass box rising over the cliff of the Pacific Ocean to blend as seamlessly as possible into the existing landscape. Details and materials were kept all natural to stay neutral while the existing beach landscape stays prominent. The roof is planted with local grasses.
A puzzle-patterend design of white oak strips make up the ceiling. White oak is a very durable and common wood that has been used for boatbuilding for its reliable results. The grain is one of the straightest found in common wood with a light to medium brown color. It is commonly used in cabinet and furniture making because of its good value and workability.
