VIEW OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN from four exceptional windows

Nov 18, 2019

 

An old “eccentric” building located on the Californian coast has undergone renovation and turned into an ideal place to relax. The bedroom offers a fabulous view of the Pacific Ocean and all this thanks to four unique roof windows.  

A construction from the 70’s

It took more than a year to finish renovation works of the building in Bolinas, California, that has been abandoned and fallen into ruin over the years. An architect Alethea Patton together with the owners undertook the challenge of creating a functional home using the largest possible amount of mate-rials from the original building. Their efforts resulted in an artistic, eclectic house with a vast, green garden full of flowers and  a wonderful view of the Bay of San Francisco.

 

“When we were surfing the Internet and came across  FAKRO balcony windows they looked to good to be true – our impression was that those windows were created just for this house. They had to be brought from Poland and transported across the United States all the way to the West Coast. When they finally arrived, we knew it was worth waiting for! Their quality is amazing and you can see they will serve for many years to come” - commented by the building owner.

 

Functional space

The interior of the building impresses with its re-markable character. The spacious kitchen com-bined with dining room is directed towards the garden and terrace that is made up of boards from the old house. A balcony was added on the second floor with barrel sauna placed on it. In the bedroom on the top floor, FAKRO roof windows open up the space to the Pacific Ocean and provide an extraordinary view right after waking up in the morning. Moreover, the FGH-V Galeria balcony window after opening allows to gain an additional space in the attic to feel the ocean breeze. When closing the window, balustrades are hidden inside, therefore they are protected from damage and dirt accumulation.

 

Durability & Aesthetics

Wooden facade has been made using the ancient Japanese method that increased its durability and repels pests without the need for chemical agents. This method consists in searing wooden boards until a charred outer layer is formed, giving an intriguing aesthetic effect.


Currently, the house with three bedrooms and two bathrooms can be rented by tho-se who want to feel the atmosphere of this marvellous place.
