Cove House is a private house designed by XTEN Architecture. This house is located in Laguna Beach, California. The location of this house is in a lagoon with a decreasing land contour, which affects the structure and construction of the building. The most gentle part was chosen as the entrance to the house so that the vehicle can be parked easily into the garage.
Cove House has a modern minimalist concept with a few expressive touches of deconstructed architecture. Adjusting the location in the lagoon, Cove House is painted white with some parts of the red brick left exposed. The shape of the building mass is very expressive with curved and angular shapes as seen in the XTEN Architecture design plan diagram.
