Uplifting Urban House in Cancún Displaying a Contemporary-Elegant Style

Located in Cancún, México, the Cereza House is an uplifting urban house, that looks magnificent on the inside (due to the contemporary-elegant style adopted) but might seem a little bit dull and gloomy on the outside to those who are fond of dynamic living environments. Cereza House is the home of an adult Mexican couple, in love with contemporary design. The main problem with this house was that it did not respond to the clients’ personal tastes. When Warm Architects was charged with the project, the team had to find a solution and deliver a home that actually would make the clients feel comfortable.

The main problem was that the house’s views were shadowed by other buildings. The solution was to focus a little bit more on the interior courtyard and exploit the space as much as possible. “The project proposes an elongated courtyard inside the house. The courtyard also allows circulation through it, between the second bedroom, the studio and the social area. On the first floor, the central space of the house is the double height of the lobby and living room overlooking the elongated interior courtyard, bound by a glass wall that allows for natural light, ventilation, and interior/exterior quality spaces that are generated when opened.”

    The home looks elegant. But it is best at night,for the lighting makes the area more serene.

    Dull and gloomy?!
    Oh my Dear…! I find it incredibly elegant and restrained!!
    And the front design exudes Drop Dead High Class but
    without any hint of gaudiness as so many expensive projects do!!
    I (my problem) would IMMEDIATELY get rid of that chandelier
    and probably those two armchairs.
    This gorgeous house deserves classics of contemporary design,
    like Eileen Gray pieces, Charles Eames armchair, Piet Mondrian,
    Mies van der Rohe, and many other geniuses of that caliber.
