Designed by Desai Chia Architecture in collaborating with this dramatic contemporary residence instantly grabs your attention with the 20-foot-long cantilevered upper level and a charred wood exterior that dubbed ‘shou sugi ban’. The dark exterior lets the home standout visually even while ensuring that it melts away into darkness after sunset.
Locally sourced wood and stone were used throughout the house and dying ash trees milled from the lot were used in creating custom furniture and cabinets for the home. But the woodsy goodness does not end there as flooring ceiling panels and eye-catching trim work were also crafted using this wood.
It is the lavish public area which becomes the heart of the house while the more private bedrooms are carefully hidden away. Sliding glass doors an outdoor sunken lounge with roaring fire pit and an infinity pool complete the backyard; an area that is bound to see more traffic as the sun goes down.
Life at this Mexican escape is both relaxing and comfortable with modern décor sitting snugly next to warm wooden finishes which become even more prominent thanks to the stunning ceiling. Large contemporary pendants above the dining area put the final touches on the serene space.
