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.
This creates a cheerful and well-kit atmosphere even as the living area flows into kitchen and dining space next to it. Adding another layer of intrigue to the apartment is the use of uncovered thermo-clay bricks in the living area and plasterboard in the bedrooms; giving the new home plenty of visual contrast.
Moving away from materials like wood and plaster it is concrete blocks metal sheets and un-fired bricks that shape this modern-industrial home in a neighborhood with rich industrial heritage.
Spatially the three different structures of the house contain three specialized areas with the edifice in the foreground housing the living area kitchen and other public spaces. One of the two rear structures hosts the master bedroom suite with the other containing the kids’ bedroom. An undulating roofscape puts the final touches on a truly mesmerizing lakeside home.
Having started as an idea for a cabin that floats on water ever so gently the ended up as a cabin on stilts that still allows its owner to enjoy live on a lake without breaking the local building codes.
Set on a stunning lakefront lot in the falls into the latter category and it is sight of flowing water endless greenery and rolling hills that steal the show here! And to their credit Christopher Architecture & Interiors design a holiday retreat that maximizes views and enhances the marvel of the captivating setting.
