Casa Cieneguitas is a project designed by architect Chuy Navarro. This concept house is located in the state of Zacatecas in Mexico. The relationship between interior and exterior is pursued within this recent design by Studio Navarro.
Previously, we wrote about Casa Refugio, a concept house characterised by Mexican charm and simplicity, which perfectly describes the thinking of the architect Chuy Navarro. His most recent design, Casa Cieneguitas, had the same mindset. His ambition was to connect the starting point of the primitive dwelling called 'The Cave' with its surroundings. In short, to create a harmonious relationship between inside and outside.
Creating space and lots of light with a strong connection to nature.
Casa Cieneguitas is located on a barren site and, at the request of the clients, is limited to the ground floor. Navarro's ambition was to create an interpretation of the relationship with the surrounding nature. The materials used in Casa Cieneguitas are mainly natural such as stone, wood and concrete. Moreover, this combination of materials completely blends in with its surroundings, creating a very beautiful whole. As mentioned, this design has no floors, which means that every window gives access to the garden. It is noteworthy that the openings to the garden appear as blind walls, so they open inwards. The ventilation provides each room with coolness, and the use of concrete as an artificial stone merges with the natural stone, so that the natural stone symbolically enters the interior. This creates a unique connection with the environment, nature and natural light. The interior is very light and serene thanks to the neutral colour palette chosen by Navarro. Casa Cieneguitas immerses you in an oasis of calm where you can forget all your worries for a while. Want to get enchanted by more impressive projects and inspiring architecture?
