Seaside House Designs, buried into the hillside

This seaside house design has a distinctive water-inspired edge, but is more connected to the earth than you'd think, for a beach house! Not your typical California beach house, the Abalone House in Big Sur, designed by architect Thomas Cowen along with Rana Creek, is an interesting home overlooking the sparkling shoreline. Interestingly, this underground home design rising out of the hillside stands out the most for its artful subtlety - a hidden house topped by a rooftop garden of native plants that blends right into the surrounding landscape. Projecting from the roof, a port-hole style skylight opens to reveal natural light and the salty air. Rana Creek.
