Resting on half an acre of hillside property, this Seaside Escape we present today displays a contemporary architecture built to help a small group of people relax. Suited for maximum two couples or a small family, the Seaside Escape features great amenities. The wood cladding looks old and beautifully integrated with the surrounding colors, but the angular roofs and geometric windows reflecting the surroundings keep the establishment modern and sophisticated. The interiors, although warm and inviting, are somehow overwhelmed by surrounding views. Queen bedrooms await guests with comfortable interiors and glimpses of the ocean.
An ocean-side deck just outside the two bedrooms features a hot tub, capturing the best of Bodega Bay, California. If you want to replace the hot tub or the jacuzzi in the master bathroom with the real thing, head down to Portuguese Beach nearby. A lovely bench on the terrace overlooking the ocean constructs memories of distant rocks rising out of the water. Inside, natural wood on a grey background make up the main color palette, allowing nooks and furniture create a relaxing atmosphere. A gourmet kitchen with sparkling stainless steel appliances and an adjacent dining space are slightly delimited by a half wall continuing into an amazing window seat. Dark blinds offer guests the possibility of choosing between a shaded or a sun-flooded interior. Stained concrete floors with radiant heat ensure the comfort, while the fireplace in the living room gathers guest around a cozy fire and good conversation.
These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city
