How often have you come across a home designed to offer the perfect acoustics? Sure we all ponder it while designing the home theater media room or even a more modest TV room. But what about the rest of the house? Nestled in and designed by Bates Masi Architects the truly exceptional provides a captivating answer to that question.
Much of this gorgeous residence crafted by Studio Arquitectos is clad in polished cement which connects the interior and the landscape outside visually while shaping an inimitable ambiance. Nestled on Mexico’s Caribbean coast it is tropical exuberance that is interwoven with contemporary refinement to give Casa T a relaxing vibe.
Add to this the distinct presence of wide cedar board siding that is literally ‘stapled on’ using custom stainless steel clips and you have a home that does everything it can to ensure that the open living area is detached from the constant hustle and bustle outdoors.
But that is not the end of surprises at this awesome Belgian home as a sloped green roof that seems like an extension of the garden landscape ensures that the structure completely blends in with its backdrop.
The key: turning to a semi-buried structure. The exceptional residence designed by OYO Architects has an open plan living area on the top level that sits just above ground while the private spaces are nestled underneath.
The result is something that captivates you instantly with a series of thick parallel concrete walls creating a smart and stylish family home where privacy is coupled with an air of peacefulness. The series of walls grow progressively taller as they move outward with those forming the peripheral keeping out almost all the outside noise.
