Masterfully designed by Specht Harpman Architects the rooftop garden and hangout is a perfect idea for those looking for something more than just a simple green roof. Both practical and planet-friendly the idea creates an urban oasis even in a concrete jungle!

The upper level with its minimal bedroom contemporary bathroom and an exquisite terrace deck that offers unabated views of the town completes this ingenious and light-filled contemporary home where outdoor living becomes the main focus of design and architecture.
The two bedrooms are simple and minimal even as the stunning bathroom with a sunken bathtub promises panoramic views of the ocean and beyond. For a modular green home Avalon does not disappoint even from a conventional standard!
A metallic stairway leads you to the top floor that houses the exquisite master bedroom with its chevron headboard wall and imaginative lighting. A spa-style bathroom and additional bedrooms complete a loft that is both welcoming and a touch ‘edgy’ at the same time.

On the lower level the series of shelves acts as a display unit for the living room and also doubles as a staircase railing that seems to flow into the second floor.
The homeowners wanted a residence that incorporated a part of their old villa was far less rigid and a lot more open in design. Irving Smith Architects accomplished precisely that with the new modern structure that offers a design that is evolutionary and practical!
