Recently a client wanted a modern contemporary home design. The project is located in Malibu, California. Because of the narrow size of the original proposed beach lot, the custom home will be located on two additional adjacent ocean front lots.
As a modern home designer, when we start a new project at Myles Nelson McKenzie Design, whether it is a small home addition, a home remodel, or a large custom home design. We always start with a preliminary design sketch. From these preliminary ideas, we work towards creating the general building design concept. It is based upon our clients requirements as well as the local governing agencies guidelines.
From these design sketches, we produce design development plans for the project. In this phase we are finely tuning the home design in every aspect for final design approval. Upon the approval from our client and the local governing agencies, we move to the final phase of construction plan development.
Design Features For Our Modern Contemporary Home Design
The size of the livable main floor space of our modern, open floor plan home design in Malibu, California is 5602 square feet. The subterranean garage is additional 1200 square feet.
The layout of the main floor has 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths along with a large kitchen-dining area that is adjacent to a very spacious great room. This custom home is perfect for entertaining with the main living areas overlooking spectacular ocean views. A desirable design feature is the large accordion style glass door systems that are 10 feet high, with opening widths of 21 and 24 feet. The interior ceiling heights is 12 feet throughout the the home.
The large covered deck expands the main floor level that faces south and west. From this large covered deck space, facing south-west there is also a very large open deck space, that steps down to the ocean front beach area. The current estimated construction budget is conservatively at 5.4 million.
