Bringing Nature Inside: Mexico’s Casa FF by Hernandez Silva

Boasting elegant wood warming the streamlined modern style architecture of concrete and glass, Hernandez Silva Arquitectos’ CASA FF is located in a gated community in Sapopan, a small town north of Guadalajara, Mexico. The home is formed in the shape of a “T,” which makes for visual ease and a simplicity of approach — and makes the house seem to float on its base! Within this “T” shape are an internal courtyard with a green lawn, as well as a pool; this lovely feature highlights the entire home, positioned as it is beside a hallway that is also surrounded by greenery. In fact, bringing the outdoors “inside” is a key ingredient in this home’s welcoming style: with a main entrance through laurel trees, its smooth, clean lines invite entertaining and make it effortless.

The double-height living room looks out on the peaceful water feature; of an evening, guests can also gather around the fireplace. The kitchen, while a separate space, is only steps away from both living areas and outdoor deck, loungers, and gardens, making meal preparation and serving convenient, no matter what the weather — and the weather is seldom a problem in this mild climate. Sheltered by trees for privacy, the pool beckons day or night; in the private areas of the house an upstairs corridor leads to bedrooms and a lavish bathroom. There, bright touches of red cheer the white-and-wood décor, and a deep soaking tub is perfect for relaxation. With lavish use of natural materials — and interior design incorporating nature as well — Casa FF is a luxurious haven of casual style from Hernandez Silva.
