In the case of the Caterpillar House by Feldman Architecture, the clients had a series of specific requests. they wanted the house to be closely connected to its surroundings and to have a modern ranch feel while also being environmentally-friendly and sustainable. The architects managed to fulfill these requests by creating a contemporary version of a ranch, with full-height glass walls and clerestory windows.
It was designed as a weekend getaway for visitors and it has a pond and a series of open spaces which communicate seamlessly with the outdoors. What we love the most about this guest house designed by Desai Chia Architecture is the scale of the windows and how they wrap around corners to capture the most amazing views. The whole idea behind this cozy although pretty big house in Valle de Bravo, Mexico, was to offer the owners the opportunity to enjoy living in the middle of nature, surrounded by trees and tranquility. The design direction chosen by Weber Arquitectos includes a lot of glazed walls and floor-to-ceiling windows while the house as a whole was designed around the existing trees, preserving the environment as much as possible.
The interior is simple and has a masculine vibe. The palette of materials used in here has a lot to do with that. The ceilings are covered in exposed steel, the floors are made of exposed concrete and the sculptural staircase and the handrails are made of raw steel. This would be a very cold and austere combo if not for the warm wood accents that balance out the decor. A cool feature is the fact that the artwork is painted directly on the walls by local artists. Check out this funky and colorful kitchen decor or the accent wall in the bedroom.
