The Pacific coast of Mexico with its beautiful seascapes and inviting golden sand beaches is ideal for their construction.
In 2009 the design studio Elas Rizo Arquitectos completed the design of the residence "Casa Almare" in the popular Pacific resort of Puerto – Vallarta of the coastal state of Jalisco.
The main facade planes of the white four-storey villa with a partial fifth floor are elegantly shaded by wooden siding. Also, the upper floors of the villas are equipped with canopies, which create a shaded space in the midday heat. Over 860 square meters of the building, built on a rocky and elevated beach, looks impressive and presentable.
Rectangular shapes dominate the architecture of the villa and its surroundings. Its enormous rectangular floor-to-ceiling windows provide residents with panoramic views of the sea and views of the gorgeous ocean sunsets. Some sections of the walls are also replaced by glass partitions, creating the illusion of being at one with nature.
On the first floor of the villa, the designers placed the living, dining and kitchen areas in the open space of the first floor multipurpose room. The living room is separated by sliding glass doors from the fancy infinity-edge pool with a panoramic view from the front of the house.
The highlight of the chic pool is the psychological effect of infinity, received by the bathers. After all, the pool is arranged so that the coastline is not visible from it, one sees only the water in which one swims and then the ocean. The terrace is equipped with a seating area with comfortable outdoor furniture and sunbathing beds.
Inside the home are numerous bedrooms, baths and guest rooms.
In the interiors of residences by Elas Rizo Arquitectos, a unified approach is felt in all the rooms – monochrome white color design of interiors, minimalism in the organization of space and in furnishing, the use of exclusively natural building materials, the connection of panoramic landscapes and the interior into a single whole.
Various partitions, screens are harmoniously and originally used in the decor.
Of particular note is the creative designers' use of handmade details in the ultra-modern, minimalist, ergonomic interiors, such as countertops made of rough boards, fragments of withered tree trunks. All this gives the human dwelling individuality, makes it warmer, cozier.
The designers not only made it possible to admire the splendor of the surrounding nature through the windows of this remarkable home that looks like a cozy ocean island, but also to get the best view from the comfortable outdoor terrace on the roof of the villa.
