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.
Reinforced concrete structural steel and a prefabricated system of insulated panels ensure that the temperature inside is carefully controlled even as the clerestory windows usher in a flood of natural light.
Reuse of materials was an important part of the new house with paneled wood doors doorknobs and hardware from the old interior being reused fully. Pops of Benjamin Moore’s Melon Popsicle fuchsia pastel pinks and green enliven different rooms of the house while curated art work unique collectibles and a gorgeous living room diorama provide playful and exquisite finishing touches on a transformation that leaves you spellbound!
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 living area is like an open pavilion with the rear deck pool area and the view beyond becoming a part of the experience at the lake house. The double height living area is draped in a neutral color palette and natural stone finishes ensure that the focus remains firmly on the scenery outdoors.
It is barely surprising news to know that we are increasingly moving away from nature and are stuck in a world dominated by concrete glass cement and stone. The urban landscape has barely any space for nature at its vibrant best.
