But it is the central courtyard that is the true showstopper here as it becomes the heart and soul of this Aussie home where life outside seems far more alluring than indoors! Turning the natural slope of the site into an advantage the interior features a stepwise arrangement of spaces with each one flowing into the next.
A street façade and entry that matches the exceptional quality and silhouette of the house elevate its visual grandeur to a whole new level! But the pleasant surprises keep on coming as a state-of-the-art home automation system is used to control every single aspect of this Dutch delight.
You can find everything that one normally comes to expect from Japanese design here as a neutral color scheme cleverly used shoji screens organic finishes and lantern-style lighting fill the space with inviting warmth. But what truly sets this home apart is the ‘Doma’ that wraps itself around the living area creating a wonderfully unique indoor-outdoor interplay.
One can only see a hint of this modernity from the street but as you step inside the ambiance of the house moves completely away from its more traditional brick-clad exterior. White is the color of choice inside with a dash of gray adding refinement to the setting even as a flood of light from the new living area flows all the way to the front section.
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.
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.
The lower level of the home contains the kitchen dining and living spaces (as is the norm in most homes) with folding and sliding glass doors connecting these areas with the garden.
