Contemporary Residence by Hernandez Silva Arquitectos
Guadalajara-based studio Hernandez Silva Arquitectos has completed the Godoy House project, a brilliant residence which challenges the boundaries of space and colour.
The contemporary two-story residence, located in a city in the Mexican state of Jalisco, benefits from a strikingly excellent technique utilised by Hernandez Silva Arquitectos. By using a particular shade of white and a particular material, the house exudes an orange glow in the day, yet still shines terrifically in the night with the bright artificial lights. This method instantly brings attention to the spacious, contemporary residence.
The quirky use of unconventional shapes for the windows means that the interior follows suit. The vast area of the living spaces leaves the client in no doubt that this house is as luxurious as they come, and the delightful open-space plan allows for privacy when desired and sociability when wanted. A splash of red is seen throughout the house, especially on the furnishings, and is a colour which bounces off the artificial lighting and gives the house a magnificent glow.
With wildlife on one side and a vast swimming pool on the other, this residence is surrounded by comfort, relaxation and entertainment, while the vastness of the rooms and the open-plan areas allow the home to become a contemporary, lavish haven.
