Contemporary Seaside Estate, Malibu
California-based architectural practice Burdge & Associates Architects, Inc have completed the Seaside Estate project. Completed in 2011, the contemporary waterfront property can be found in Point Dume in Malibu, California, US.
While staying true to the home’s original footprint, Burdge designed the home to be a warm and timeless retreat, reflective of its serene coastal surroundings.
The luxury Malibu home features predominantly orthagonal geometries and rectangular volumetrics, as well as modern materials, including neutral earth-toned stucco and concrete.
The home’s intimate environment is emphasised by oil-rubbed cedar wood, distressed French Oak floors and walnut interior doors.
With seamless floor-to-ceiling glass windows and pocket doors throughout, the new residence is designed to have an open internal and external flow, taking advantage of the coastal winds, sunsets and panoramic ocean and island views from every room. The spacious and open floor plan also makes this home ideal for entertaining.
The architects added several new elements to the contemporary Malibu property, including a spacious new guest house, a 50-foot swimming pool and spa, trellised terraces, and an outdoor kitchen.
The luxury home features sustainable materials and methods including insulated windows, a solar panel-ready “cool roof” and natural cross-ventilation, which all keep the interiors cool.
The coveted location of this quintessential Malibu beach house offers views of birds flying at eye-level, as well as the rare sight of grey whales during their annual migration period.
