Novelist Mehmet Murat İldan was quoted as saying: "Enlarge your windows till you get a window where you can see the whole universe with one look!" Well, with truly spectacular and expansive panoramic Pacific Ocean ocean views spanning from Carmel Beach to Point Lobos State Reserve, this contemporary 10,418 square foot estate certainly lives true to that statement. This one-of-a-kind home, designed by award-winning Sterling | Huddleson Architecture, features windows and doors supplied by Boulder Ridge Sash & Door and manufactured by Sosoares of Portugal. The ocean facing floor to ceiling doors and windows fill the palatial modern home with ample light and captivating ocean views, thoroughly maximizing every last aspect of the magnificent architecture and its stunning natural surroundings.
The clients of this contemporary oceanfront home, designed by award-winning architect Stephanie Barnes-Castro, wanted the magnificent view of the Monterey Bay to grace all of their main living areas, including the primary suite and guest quarters. The result, as seen through the minimalist Sosoares windows and doors, is both visually stunning and rather breathtaking.
Remarkable contemporary clean line architecture meets the High Sierra in this expansive residence that features stunning windows and doors from Slovenia based M Sora. The natural world and beauty that surround this home is visually maximized by not only the sheer amount of windows and doors, but also the strategic placement of them relative to the lush and bucolic grounds that surround it. The result: a modern but warm abode that brings the outside in, harnessing a deep connection with nature.
Boulder Ridge Sash and Door, with Garrett Carlson at the helm, is a go-to window and door company. The biggest difference between Boulder Ridge and other window and door reps, is that Boulder Ridge not only has excellent working knowledge of their product lines, but they also understand field conditions and are hands-on when it comes to dissecting real life installations. This cannot be underestimated in this day and age.
Since I design mostly modern oceanfront homes with large expanses of glass, I instantly fell in love Sosoares, the company Boulder Ridge represents out of Portugal. Sosoares has tremendous flexibility in size, configuration, and strength that far surpasses that of other window and door manufacturers. And to boot, Sosoares’s aesthetic and functionality are breathtaking.
The combination of working with Boulder Ridge and Sosoares has allowed my design work to stand out as well as hold up to the test of time in severe weather conditions. I highly recommend both companies. They share a deep level of integrity in their work.
