Sticks and stones

Rising from the grass, shaded by a stand of trees is a simple beach house celebrating its surroundings and the lifestyle of surf and sand, sun and fun with family and friends. This is simple building within a short walk of the sea but in its simplicity, its pared back state is the essence of casual days, a slower time and pace. Life is a beach after all and the design team at  are no beach bums when it comes to the perfect seaside retreat. Over the next few days I will be sharing more from Martín Gómez. In the seaside town of Punta del Este, Uruguay he has been slowly designing and building a relationship with this beautiful part of the world. A relationship that embraces site and nature, the built environment and natural environment. Each home will be different but always with a common thread. (You can see my previous post on Martín Gómez here.)

This place is exactly what i want. I would not change a single thing. Thanks for posting this very inspiring post.

Okay…I see a computer…does that mean someone can actually concentrate on work here? If yes, sign me up! Such a very serene space!

How simple can a bathroom be…

All of these nice bespoke peices and amazing finishes – then they go and put cheap, asian made, poor quality surfboards in the photos… yuk.

Nice interiors. Very earthy. Since i'm a fan of i would have put some of it to mix up the earthiness with some modern designs.
