Many architects seek inspiration in geometry and symmetry in order to incorporate consistency, simplicity, and natural elegance into their designs. As a result, more and more buildings are based on the idea of a box, with sharp edges and angular shapes. Given the increasing popularity of this trend, it is becoming more difficult to differentiate, however the Seth Navarrete House by Agraz Arquitectos manages to do just that, and then some.
I cannot find a reason why I would not move into the house in the blink of an eye. Just tell me when and I will start packing my bags. It has a distinctive geometric layout and is neither big, nor small. It was built for a young couple and measures no more than 200 square meters. The house is compact as the designers made use of every inch of free space to provide the most comfortable living experience possible.
The residence features two floors. While there are living and dining rooms with a private bathroom on the first floor, the second holds the bedrooms and additional bathrooms as well as walk-in closets.
White dominates both exterior and interior of the house. Large floor-to-ceiling windows allow the sun to fill the inside with warm light. Skillfully applied combination of bright paint and an extensive use of glass enhance the feeling of space and create an optical illusion that the residence is bigger than it appears.
