The existing house was on a street with beautiful quaint historic beach cottages. Electric Bowery took on the challenge of taking a monolithic industrial building and reintegrating it into the neighborhood’s warm friendly vibe. The design objective was to imbue the home with the feeling of life you find inside a classic beach bungalow, despite the stark nature of the existing bones of the building.[p]>
Creating a home that embodied the social and open spirit of beach living meant opening up the main living space. The kitchen was moved from a dark corner to a central location, with the dining area radiating towards the living room. It feels and works as one, but with function delineated to specific areas.
Electric Bowery created an outdoor spa and lounge adjacent to the master bedroom, where the clients can enjoy the sea air in their own private oasis, with a plunge pool, hot tub and outdoor fireplace.
With a fresh white brick facade, the building was transformed into a modern take on a beach cottage, with an interior palette that brings harmony with the beachside community.
