Designed by FARQ Arquitectos this gorgeous in Mexico is no different as it makes most of the fabulous view outside thanks to the 18-foot elevated platform that it firmly sits on. Even though the house is completely hidden from the street that leads to it a winding entryway with stone walls leads to an exquisite interior that completely open up towards the garden and the lake view in the rear.
The spacious home across two levels was built within a budget of and promises to serve the family with two kids efficiently for the next two decades. For most modern couples such a home is an absolute dream and helps them save for a future project that is more lavish and offers a dream escape for the second half of their lives! It is the use of concrete and metal that significantly reduce construction costs along with innovative building techniques and a predisposition towards minimalism.
A glass façade is the real show stopper at this modern retreat as it opens up the interior completely to the view outside. You are surrounded by nature completely and it is changing sunlight through the day and the passage of seasons that provide a dynamic colorful and hypnotic backdrop that takes you back into nature’s lap.
The transformation is anything but mundane with the new floor plan including a dining room within the confines of the kitchen crafted out of wood and glass partitions.
At the far end lies the third volume of the house that contains the patio along with a double height glass dome that aids in air circulation. Large indoor plants a pebble garden and spacious gathering zones complete the lower level with the second floor containing the bedrooms and other private spaces. A perfect interaction of indoor and outdoor design elements draped in a glassy sheen!
The steel and glass roof of the terraces stands in contrast to the more stoic sight of concrete walls and ceiling of the living area kitchen and dining. One is soon left wondering whether one is indoors or outside thanks to the creative design that blurs traditional boundaries!
