Fascinating Indoor/Outdoor Mix: Casa Siete by Hernandez Silva

Facing west is this modern, minimalist Casa Siete by Hernandez Silva Arquitectura — but that may not be the first thing you notice about this design. That overwhelming first (and repeated) feature is how the indoors and outdoors become one in this particularly unique design. Greenery is part of the décor here; from the mature trees shading the sloping front yard and ending with a magnificent indoor courtyard with trees in planters, this house brings the green inside and welcomes natural light while still maintaining a sleek line and plenty of privacy. From the main entrance, where the main stairs emerge, you see the inner courtyard, then an open-plan living/dining area; a diagonal wall at the fireplace makes a visual connection to the courtyard as well.

On the other side of the home, you’ll find a spacious terrace, a boomerang-shaped space that segues directly to the kitchen and the games room. (Notice the great view you get while you’re playing billiards!) Upstairs are the private areas of the home — children’s bedrooms and a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and lavish closet space. Here there’s also a family room, plus an additional guest room that can have multiple uses, and a home gym with a connection to the courtyard. At its essence, the design “hangs together” through the use of a limited range of natural materials: the fresh look is achieved with different types of wood, marble, glass, concrete, and plaster — plus sunlight and foliage — to make this house truly fit its setting…and vice-versa.
