Casa La Atalaya by Alberto Kalach

The beach house of dreams rises in the form of cool concrete off the Pacific coast of California.  Casa La Atalaya by Alberto Kalach is a contemporary home spanning a group of terraced sections that face toward the rumbling sea beyond.  While the exterior is bold and functional, the interior is decidedly comforting, with warm natural wooden accents that merge with the rock-colored concrete walls and ceilings.  While the private sections of this home are stunning in their own right, the shared spaces like the game room, wine cellar, living rooms and outdoor patios make this home something special.  This work by Alberto Kalach empraces the warm, natural feel of stone and wood throughout its expanse.  It’s hard to connect “contemporary” and “comfortable”, but Kalach succeeds in this amazing modern home.  [via plataforma arquitectura, images by yoshihiro koitani]
