Living The Dream: EL MIRADOR HOUSE

Well…. where to begin. If modern design where to ever meet classical equestrian  … it sure would be here at the breathtaking EL MIRADOR HOUSE located in Mexico. EL MIRADOR HOUSE or also translated ” The Lookout house” is a “collaborative effort of design headed by Mexican architecture firm CC Arquitectos and head architects Manuel Cervantes Céspedes and José Luis Heredia Alvarez. From beautiful stonework to bold woodwork, EL MIRADOR needs little interior accessorizing as the structure simply speaks for itself. A “marriage of nature and modern living can be found everywhere in the house. In fact, half of El Mirador is actually buried in order to protect its inhabitants from the valley’s cold climates. Even the cars are hidden within the structure once parked.” -KNSTRCT When designing EL MIRADOR HOUSE designers were determined to create a ,”fresh twist on the classic cabin in the woods. ” Head designers , “Céspedes and Álvarez chose to use materials from the region including white oak, steel, and walls made of local stone. They even recycled railroad ties from old train tracks for the exterior cladding. The earthy tones and materials provide warmth and coziness to the cool, open space.”- KNSTRCT
