At the first sight, a whole amount of concrete coming together into a house of serious proportions is not what we’d think of for a beach house. But it appears that Alberto Kalah did think so for Casa La Atalaya, located on the Pacific coast of California and this ingenious approach for a beach house might actually work.
The cold gray is not just for the exterior, as the natural concrete color of the walls was kept for the interior, too. Yet, the warmth of the area calms down the harshness of the house, so this does not become a problem.
But how can the color of the walls can be a problem, when a huge wine cellar, a game room, outdoor patios through the wonderful natural surroundings and a pool give that special note that surpasses every little flaw that one might think to be? Contemporary and comfortable make a perfect match in here.
