How do you design a home that not only stand its ground against a stunning view but enhances it? How do you create harmonious, life-enhancing interiors, unique and beautiful? How do you revamp a 1930s block of apartments into a stylish marriage of coastal and global styles? Why you let design it for you.
Because I can’t get Mexico out of my head, I thought I would share a bit of it with you today via this home designed by (Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados). Located in San Miguel de Allende, this weekend residence is minimal, filled with natural elements and is an absolute dream.

“A rear extension consists of timber and cement sheet cladding, which is given nuance through minor alterations to its simple form: a curved corner softens the entry experience, a folded line of north-facing glazing provides a functional eave, and glazing is located to moderate light and frame views. Inside, generous living spaces are conducive to casual family life. Different living zones are created through gentle interventions: gentle light on entry shifts to a bright double-height family room, changes in material create warmth, and small nooks are suited to impromptu reading and resting.”

“Sybil is a place for gatherings. The arrangements of buildings across the picturesque site generously provide an escape for family and friends. Implementing a deliberately rural pallet of raw yet delicate materials, we have carefully framed the landscape, providing visual context to each space. Designed to facilitate the clients desire to bring their loved ones together, Sybil becomes the context in which family memories are framed.”
