Today, we are going to visit Mexico where design professionals P11 Architects have built a stylish and savvy home that features a little bit of sass too!
This modern masterpiece is ideal for any family, yet as we explore it from the outside in, we will also come across some beautiful and sophisticated features that show how a traditional elegant home can be full of character and charm too.
This home also incorporates some earthy and rustic elements, bringing a touch of nature into this luxurious architecture.
Are you ready to explore your dream house?
From the exterior space, we can see just how modern and magnificent the home is, with an emphasis on safety and security.
The outside of the home features a mix of materials including a large, wooden gate, a raw brick wall, concrete elements and of course, a beautiful little front garden.
The strategically placed lights in the front garden illuminate the details and design of the facade.
Have a look at how you can: Make a big first impression with a small front garden.
Behind the large gate, we come across a sheltered garage area where cars and other items can be stored neatly out of the rain or sunshine. This area also leads directly to the house so that there is easy access from the car into the home.
For South Africans, garages are a very important part of a home design. They allows our cars to be looked after throughout the seasons and keep them safe and protected from any thieves.
This garage design is very functional, while the driveway allows for more cars to be parked neatly and securely behind the large gate, catering for guests and visitors.
A covered corridor leads from the garage into the house, flanked by a beautiful and lush green garden. This creates a feeling of walking through a forest to get to the beautiful and homely wooden door.
The fact that this area is covered is very advantageous, keeping guests and family members protected from extreme sunshine or rain as they make their way to the front door. Little lights in the ceiling also ensure that it's very easy in the dark to find one's way to the front door.
