Nature Playing a Key Role in Design: Casa Veintiuno in Mexico

Guadalajara-based studio, Hernandez Silva Architects designed Casa Veintiuno, a 531 sq. meters residence, within the metropolitan area of the city. The venue feels open and transparent, with a large void at the centre to remind of an old Spanish-like patio. It almost feels like you’re exploring the wonders of a garden rather than walking throughout a house. The central opening, which represents the core of this project, connects all three levels. A glass roof completes the architectural expression, allowing natural light to fall through the living zones and eventually create a bright home environment.

Designed as an open space, the terrace integrates wonderfully with the living. Vegetation plays a key role in design. A green wall runs along one of the internal walls whilst a tree was planted right in the middle of this open anteroom. Nature seems to have invaded this space, showing its supremacy over the artificial, man-made created space. “The house is made with few materials, concrete walls in some volumes, plastered walls, Piacentina stone and Cumarú wood in some coverings. The carpentry was made in parota with horizontal wood grains to produce a dramatic use of this extraordinary wood. The house wouldn’t have much furniture; therefore some elements were incorporated to the architecture, one of them being the sideboard, a high gloss white wooden body, whose modulation is related to the stone covering.”

Charming Modern Home Extension Re-Shaping Socializing Opportunities

Extending a home to fit current needs is not to be taken easily. A modern home extension requires planning for future use and using what already exists to support that. An exemplary proof is Casa ATT by Dionne Arquitectos, a home in Puebla, Mexico, that was re-designed by the architects as a fuller, more nurturing collection of spaces. In their successful effort of renewing the outline of the house, architects integrated the new structure into the familiar floor plan by “generating clear transitional environments discovering visual axes and circulation leading to the new spaces.”

Plenty of socializing areas bring the family together: the new open social space, terrace and guest bedroom complete the necessary space and helps better organize the interiors. In addition, the terrace overlooking the garden connects the original volume with the new additions. In these photos captured by Patrick López Jaimes, the layout looks beautifully put together. From the front, the house looks private and once you step inside, details flood your design-hungry mind. According to the architects, “ATT House is a house in which a clear spatial harmony lives through environments that invite habitation.”

What do you think about this modern home extension? Can this home inspire you to extend your own piece of heaven? mo
