Casa Azul by Cincopatasalgato

” Happy, serene, gentle, friendly, good-hearted young family of 4 built this beach house at Costa Azul, an hour and half away from San Salvador and close to the border with Guatemala. Husband and father works in capital investment and wife and mother is the owner of La Luna de Mateo in San Salvador, a kids’ playhouse that caters to their imagination and need for exploration. Both born and raised in El Salvador, they resettled in their native country after years of traveling and living abroad to build a home that spoke to their gentle nature. Their new home, built right on the beach, allowed their children Mateo and Luna, 6 and 4 respectively, to play and explore at their hearts’ desire. Between choosing the location and designing the home, their ideal home would have the following elements – simple, elegant, inviting, and connected with nature, with modern yet rustic [ Continue reading ]

House in Mexico by Bernardi + Peschard Arquitectura

The architectural design begins with a central volume that is bigger than the rest; it dialogues with, divides and denotes the uses of the surrounding spaces. It was built as fragments that become a series of independent pavilions, and turn the complex into a beach villa. It leaves behind the massive house constructions in the surrounding area. In a palapa made of natural parota wood, over 10 m high, you find the living/dining room, which makes the transition to the semiprivate and private spaces. This element has a first plane looking into the private beach on the Pacific coast. This area was designed with the idea of making it the common area, the heart of the house, and so it is close to the sea, and has an imposing height and size. Next to this you find the other spaces in rock blocks mixed with wood elements and a palm [ Continue reading ]

Ceramic House

The ceramic House was the idea of the Spanish architect Hector Ruiz – Velazquez and it is not an actual house, but rather a small apartment in Madrid. These apartment doesn’t have any entry from room to room, no doors. The idea of the architect being to ease the communication between family members in different rooms. Although I used the term ‘family’, the architect Hector says that this apartment is dedicated to those who live all by themselves, because the apartment itself it’s not big enough. The interior is all white because almost everything is made with cerami, and I suspect that the apartment temperature is lower (because of ceramic wall and floor).

DIY Home Décor- RECYCLE

We know how important is recycling these days, and how good it is this for our health and economic status. I personally recycle things by doing something new from it, I don’t usually recycle in the ‘traditional way’. So, I want to show you some great and simple home décor ideas made from recycled things. 1. Flower bulb For this project you will need: -1 bulb; -Fake or natural flowers; -Twine.   Take the interior of the bulb out, wrap some twine around the end of the bulb and fill it with water. Then, put your flowers in it and you will have an original flowerpot. As simple as this! Personally, I like it in my kitchen because it gives a natural appearance to it. 2. Container holder You know those annoying meat or fish containers which we throw out immediately, because we cut our fingers in it or they [ Continue reading ]

Unit 315 or A Wonderful Loft

This apartment combines the modern and classic elements in a suitable way. I consider that this offers a wonderful view both to an architect and an unintitiated. The designers used very clever the entire space and succeeded in arranging the entire space for everything. Unit 315 is a residential project created by the Canadian builder Dennis Dorion and his wife Dorion Scott and the project is located in a former Wrigley’s chewing gum factory in Toronto, Canada, which was converted into apartments during the late 1990s. The interior of the apartment is contemporary and rich in details, integrating artistic elements with industrial ones. The predominant color on the walls and ceiling is white and a dark reflective floor offers contrast along with the dark tones of the side walls that are painted black. The overall neutral tones create a very elegant ambiance with long white curtains adding privacy and large [ Continue reading ]
