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.
We often talk about dream homes that rev up the luxury and style quotient to transport you into a completely different world. While many of these gorgeous residences accomplish this to a certain extent few come close to the sheer opulence and majesty of the in Miami.
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.
A long corridor with glass windows connects the indoors with the pool area modest deck and small garden. At one end of the house sits the master bedroom that opens up into its own private garden while the kids’ room on the opposite side has a great view of the pool area. This is a home where the line between the interior and the world outside is clearly defined and yet one sees a seamless interaction between the two.
Salvaged bricks and sliding glass doors used for the tunnel along with the asymmetrical butterfly roof form the two exclusive features of the residence that let it stand out from the pack. Modern décor and a neutral color scheme combined with textural contrast further up the style quotient of this fabulous re-energized cottage Down Under.
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.
The use of stainless steel clips was a masterstroke that helps the architects to use the cedar boards without having to worry about damage over time due to seasonal expansion and contraction of wood.
