Dreambuilder’s Modern Take on the Classic Beach House

2014 05 Architecture - Dreambuilder 2701 Ocean 01 - Modern Beach

Late last week we had the pleasure of photographing another great residence from Dreambuilder Custom Homes.  This gorgeous ocean-front home located in Jacksonville Beach combines many of the classic elements found on traditional coastal cottages with a modern floor plan and color pallet – resulting in a striking modern facade that has hints of both coastal and industrial influences.  Not to be outdone by the exterior, when you step into the house you are eyes are carried upward into the three-story-tall foyer (below).  As we photographed the home, we discovered all sorts of wonderful details and creative applications that help this interior to shine.  Dreambuilder has really outdone itself this time!

A House to a Home – A Second Visit to One of Dreambuilder’s Jacksonville Beach Homes

2014 01 Architecture - Dreambuilder 03 Avalon 2 Interior

This week we had the pleasure of spending an afternoon back at Dreambuilder Custom Homes‘ Avalon Two project.  The last time we visited, back in August, the house had just been completed and the owners had yet to move in.  So, as with many of our shoots, the photography was of an empty all-be-it beautifully designed house (view our favorite photos from that shoot here).   But even with a stunning house like this, there in nothing quite like walking into a beautifully appointed home.   That was certainly the case here – from the furniture and accessories to the artwork on the wall – everything really complimented the space.

As always, check out all our favorite photos below, as well as a few photos from the original shoot – and if you enjoy our photos, please share this blog with your friends and help us get the word out!

Panoramic Views & Gorgeous Details with Dreambuilder Custom Homes

Dreambuilder Custom Homes recently completed construction of their latest project – a beautiful two story home in Jacksonville Beach, FL. They had us out last week to photograph this great project.  The weather on the evening of the shoot was really quite splendid and allowed for great lighting both indoor and out.  Sean Starr (Dreambuilder’s President) designed this home from scratch with a really impressive attention to detail and some impressive creativity that really makes this home shine.

One of my favorite spaces in this house was the kitchen/living room area (above).  The space was full of windows that light up the room beautifully during the late afternoon.  Another unique feature was the round tower with wrap around windows that give you a 270 degree view of the quiet little neighborhood on both the first a second floors.  Check out all our favorite shots from the shoot below:

Tuscan Inspiration with Dostie Homes

If you live in Northeast Florida, you know Friday was one of those all-day dreary sort of rainy days.  Thursday also happened to be the day we had scheduled to shoot Dostie Home’s latest project in Palencia, just outside of St Augustine proper.  We usually like to schedule backup days for just such weather situations, but due to the fact that the homeowners were moving in that night, we weren’t able to.  So, we made the call to give it a try – a decision I was seriously questioning as I sat for 45 minutes in rain-slowed traffic on a 4 mile stretch of 9A.

But as you can see from the photos, the weather actually worked out quite well.  The nice thing about overcast skies is that they act like a 10,000 foot diffuser, which helps to balance both interior and exterior lighting.  Of course, getting the pretty sky photos may be out of the question, but you can still get some really unique shots.  And this home certainly made my job easy!  It was filled with great design elements, as well as classy upgrades and a gorgeous square-accented bathroom.  Plus, the manufactured stone on the fireplace (which I love) is the same as you’ll find if dining at Seasons 52.  Check out all our favorite shots from the shoot below:

Mediterranean Symmetry with Dostie’s Latest Home

Just last night, we had the pleasure of shooting another wonderful residence for our friends at Dostie Homes.   This one, located in Palencia, is a Mediterranean-inspired two level home with twin two car garages (very appealing to a guy like me!).  We photographed this house pre-furnishings, so you’ll clearly be able to see all the unique details and creative design that went into this home.

This home has some great extras, like outdoor kitchen, GE’s latest line of Cafe appliances, gorgeous views of the golf course, and floor-to-ceiling cabinetry.  But for me, by far, my favorite extra was the corner sliding glass doors.  Not only do these doors complete disappear behind the wall when opened, but in the kitchen area, the doors are mounted at the corner, making a gigantic opening that really blends the two living spaces amazingly well.

Sunrise Photos at Dostie’s Latest Home

Earlier this week, we had the chance to spend a morning (a very early morning) with our friends at Dostie Homes, photographing their latest home off of Scott Road in Jacksonville, FL.   The home itself is a unique combination of modern design and top of the line amenities, with several throwback tributes from 1970’s homes.  The result is a great looking home that offers guests a welcoming, comfortable, almost familiar environment.

Deremer Studios specializes in Architectural photography – both residential and commercial.  Our specialized equipment, designed specifically for this sort of photography, enables us to creatively capture almost any space!  Check out some of our favorite shots from this shoot below.
