Casa Refugio is a project which was designed by the architect J. Jesus Navarro. The concept house is located in the state of Jalisco in Mexico. Simplicity lies at the core of the design of Casa Refugio.
Navarro is a young architect from Mexico. He created this concept house: Casa Refugio of which Studio Navarro made the renders. The starting point of the design was a harmonious relationship between the materiality of the house and its surroundings. The materials used in Casa Refugio are mainly natural such as stone, wood and siena finish. These are placed next to the green vegetation of the surroundings and the courtyard garden. The concept house has no stories, everything takes place on the ground floor. In order to preserve privacy, Navarro uses skylights and all the vertical windows face the courtyard garden. Each room is connected to its surroundings, the wind and natural light.
Casa Refugio is a place where you can escape from the stress of everyday life.
The interior of the house feels light and calm due to the neutral colour palette. Navarro makes use of sharp thin lines so the block-shaped elements appear less heavy. Such as the bath that is located directly under a skylight. It is in the shape of a rectangular, grey block, but its rounded, slender edges make it softer than you might think at first glance. The free-standing furniture is often made of wood and adds a summery atmosphere to the house. Casa Refugio is a place where you can escape from the stress of everyday life.
