This residential project is the work of Lassala Elene Arquitetos. Located in Mexico, Guadalajara, this residential home (Casa S) looks nothing like a Mexican “barrio” house.
The concept of Lassala Elene Arquitetos was to create a fluid space, a connection between the outdoors and the indoor area. Juggling with volumes and lines, the architects managed to create a place, that is both elegant and relaxing, the result it’s a comtemporary luxury house with lots of glamour, nothing that we are use to see in a mexican “barrio”.
Stone and stucco blend wonderfully, creating a spectacular contrast in terms of materials. Terracotta red and almond white cover the facade revealing a young spirited house.
It’s arelaxing environment, rich in open spaces, Casa S is ideal if you want to spend some time away from the hectic days of work and pressure.
The house is structured on two levels, allowing natural light to floor the living space. Moreover, Casa S offers some of the most beautiful views over the Primavera forest. In defining the house, green processes played an important role.
The wooden dock surrounds the swimming pool and the small water cut outs give you the feeling that the wooden dock sustains a large floating house.
The abundance of materials and the cut outs remind us that volumes, shapes and cuts define the house and make it look so peculiarly amazing. The flooring is definitely more sophisticated than you would expect it to be: from beige ivory marble, to porcelain tiles.
It’s a very inspirational space, were we can have the best of the outdoor landscape and the best luxury interiors.
The interior is extremely pretentious. One word: exceptional!
