Plover Beach House

Renovated by Fuse Architecture, the Plover Beach House is located in Pajaro Dunes, a resort community that lies just south of Santa Cruz in California. The 60s pyramidal home preserves its distinct silhouette, but now features black cedar cladding that anchors the building to the sandy beach site. Light cedar with a natural color marks the entrance to the house. The three-bedroom property has a total of 1,500 square feet of living space, and features an open-plan lounge and dining area adjacent to the kitchen, and a small patio on the sandy dunes with lounge chairs and a fire pit that create a cozy spot from which to admire the beautiful sunset over the ocean.
