Located in Guadalajara, the capital city of Jalisco state in Mexico this particular luxurious modern mansion strikes us with its beautiful volumes launched from the core towards the exterior; the contemporary style that it wears is the thought process of Hernandez Silva Arquitectos.
The dream home keeps a very good balance between windows and walls, opening up massively to the second floor of the street facade without giving up on privacy, the thin privacy line being well expressed on the ground floor by the imposing opaque wall that seems to be unbreakable from the pedestrian point of view.
In the backyard landscaping the changes are huge, once passed the privacy line, upon entering the house, the whole interior converges to you opening up as much as possible and offering you expansive views towards the backyard from every single room.
These kinds of cantilevers are a common element in contemporary architecture nowadays though, we have seen them previously on our website and there are still coming, mainly because they`re very impressive and they express power and authority on some level. This huge cantilever is of course, here as well, mirrored by a thin layer of water, accentuating the volumes at night when proper lighting offers new aesthetic values to our luxurious modern dream home.
We like this home because unlike many other is compact, it has only one massive accents on which we can focus, the cantilever of course, and it seems far more familiar, it has coziness and warmth along with the contemporary clothes without being all black and white.
