Then there is the benefit of finding parking space under the cantilevered top level or; or a sheltered outdoor hangout at the very least. Nestled on an already elevated lot in Centinela Hill in Matanzas the in aims to capture the view of distant village of La Boca.
The in is a world in itself. With an imposing structure curated gardens all around it and an interior that combines old world English charm with modern chic and country styles this impressive residence feels comfortable and breathtaking at the same time!
Two different private sections of the house come together in the middle to create a spacious common area that contains the kitchen dining room and living area. With each of the private wings boasting of two bedrooms a bathroom and a smart multitasking zone the house feels both inviting and spacious.
With River Rapel meeting the Pacific in this quaint setting the residence designed by WMR Arquitectos does all it can to capture the beauty of the distant landscape and bring it indoors.
The basic idea behind the design of the house is to keep things simple with a minimal decorating style taking over. On the outside the house is draped in white and gray and this polished color scheme holds sway inside as well.
It is the rear of the house that gets a dramatic facelift with the new addition while the street façade remains completely unchanged. This preserves the original classic vibe of the residence even while ensuring that the interior has an aura that is inspired by modern industrial lofts in cities like New York and Vancouver.
The new block in the rear contains the kitchen dining area and the sitting lounge and becomes the hub of activity. A clear demarcation of styles between the original unit and the latest addition is maintained even while ensuring that the transition between both the spaces is as smooth as possible.
Designed by Michael Maltzan Architecture each of the apartments has a ventilation system that reduces dependency on artificial heating and cooling while smart planning around the building keeps ambient temperature as constant as possible.
