Despite the urban trend of homes these days, the touch of nature will never be forgotten. It has consistently become part of every home even just by placing mere plants in a pot and some water feature. There are different ways of brining nature indoors. The creativity and skill of professional architects and interior designers will surely help one achieve a home with a different feel, they way homeowners want it.
The Casa Devoto is an urban home with a nature style. It has a modern minimalist touch with its sleek look and clean lines. The interior of the house uses minimal furniture contributing in making the home look wider and larger. But the said space is actually not as large as we think it is. It is only a small area located between two existing structures when the home was just a dream. It was challenging for Andres Remy to design the house due to the location and the desire of the client to have an open space outside. But it was still resolved and a magnificent modern home was the result.
The focal point and highlight of the house is the outdoor pool. The pool is elevated from the ground and has a glass wall making it possible for anyone to view it from within and outside. Even those inside the house can see what is going on inside the pool especially that it is positioned a manner that it can be seen anywhere you are in the house. The position of the pool was determined by considering the path of impact of the sun. This way, they can swim whenever they want without being hit by the strong rays of the sun. This house is one of the best examples of an urban setting subtly combined with nature’s setting. Let us take a look at some parts of Casa Devoto.
