It is not very easy to find an property with great ocean view for sale – but building a 4500 square-foot tropical house on a 30 by 60 sf. property is even trickier, particularly with space left for a back patio, interior garden and various front-yard tropical plants to keep the site green around the edges.  Designed by Rockefeller Partners Architects this tropical house is located off a walk street with great views of the Pacific Ocean and Malibu coastline. Minimalist design has been highly influenced by Japanese traditional design and architecture.  The garden is an open green space in the center of the structure at the ground floor level. On one side of this area is a children’s room and a master’s bedroom with a bath. The garden makes the interior to be closer to nature. There are a lot of woodwork that also do so and adds a touch of comfort to the house. The architects designed the building to maximize ocean views and open spaces, taking full advantage of landscape elements and lines of site to make the rooms seem as big as possible and have the outdoors always close at hand.
