California is known for its stunning architectural marvels that rest seaside, like the 'Openhouse' by XTEN Architecture. This spectacular architectural abode mimics the modern style contemporary home owners could only dream of.

As a result of the residence's dramatic hillside location, the architects at XTEN Architecture worked to create a design that allowed this abode to be both connected with nature as well as with its view of city surroundings. Steel beams, cantilevers, varying elevations, and indoor outdoor living spaces blend together in this home, and a mix of glass with black white color schemes round out this modern minimalist house.

Implications - Minimalist designs continue to out-favor traditional product appearances in the minds of contemporary consumers. Companies looking to instantly gain gratification with modern consumers should consider simplistic designs and minimalist features within all of their products.
