For some, the house should be more than a house—it should be a place that reflects their way of living. In the case of the TRESARCA house by , lavishness is disguised in a cloak of modern taste mixed with industrial design.
Unlike other homes, this one is upfront with its image—it boldly flaunts the block building from the minute you enter the yard, where at night one can enjoy the beautiful desert-themed ambiance created by grassy trees and ball-shaped lamps that calmly light your walkway. As you proceed, you will find an open-air lounge of sofas that allow for nothing less than elegant conversations at night, when a row of flames will quietly burn at your side. The sofa that hangs from the frame of the house adds coherence to this rest space, with its black chains that complement the modernism you will soon experience if you climb the industrial-styled staircase placed above the small pool of water.
It is clear that for this house, the outer aspect of the home is as important as the rooms themselves. With a set of lounging chairs overlooking a shallow pool of water that reflects the clear night sky above, it is clear that the TRESARCA house aims for that spa-meets-lounge experience.
Inside, each piece of furniture and decoration makes its own statement. The large amount of lighting in all parts of this house is what makes the place inviting while still being able to play with darker colors such as blacks and grays. Who says that kitchens have to look like one? The kitchen of this house is so discreetly placed that the large counter and wooden bar stools can confuse anyone. Minimalism is key here, and the use of wood for cabinets and flooring in different colors makes for a quirky mixing of textures.
The numerous bedrooms all share consistency in their minimalist style, keeping the bed low-leveled with small bedside tables. After all, with a stunning view of a desert landscape, there’s little need to make the rooms look good. Here, fur blankets, curved wooden benches, and black stones of slate toys with textures just like the avant-garde bathroom do: with glass doors and stone walls, these bathrooms bring back the basics with elegance and style. A particular bedroom is rich in hues of gray and blue, which successfully create that “spa resort” feel that can whisk you away to a world of relaxation.
With modernism at its finest, this home complements the dry landscape it overlooks with its use of minimalism, while still allowing one to enjoy the luxury of fashion over a sip of champagne.
