Inspiring an exotic atmosphere, Casa San Sen designed by Alejandro Sánchez García is located in a place that not only relaxes you by soaking your senses into a deep state of tranquility but it also recharges your batteries when needed. We’re talking about Valle de Bravo, México, the type of place that conquers you with its vibrant green touch and its untainted authenticity. The exquisite picturesque home was designed to enjoy both the interior and the exterior. On one side, due to the irregular terrain, the house’s structure was raised above the ground level on metallic pillars.
The view is simply impressing. A walk on the terrace, a good conversation over a refined cup of coffee and a striking beautiful view over the lush vegetation, surrounding the house – this is paradise! A paradise sprinkled with comfortable cozy spots that brings the nature closer to you. Case San Sen spreads over one level, envisioned as a pavilion house with plenty of roof cutouts. The classic walls are replaced with transparent glass for a better light penetration, in order to create a better connection with the environment. The house borrows a rustic-exotic look due to the materials used in defining it. Breezy and neat, Casa San Sen is the type of place that makes you forget that stress even exists.

We received a series of interesting bathroom projects designed by Blanca Sanchez of Halo Design Interiors. Here are some words from the designers about the interiors presented below: “These bathrooms were designed for two large residential mansions in one of the most exclusive residential housing areas of the United Kingdom. Both houses have classical neo-Georgian exteriors, with imposing front elevations. Both were built high on a hill, with extensive views over the surrounding estate, with views as far reaching as 25 miles away. However, this is where the similarity between the two houses ends. The younger clients of the first house wanted a clear contemporary edge to the interiors of the project, including the bathrooms.
We focussed on using timeless materials and highly skilled craftsmen to create bathrooms which were not only reminiscent of the most exclusive hotels in the world, but were also comfortable and welcoming for this young family. The main cloakroom was a feature room, with a wall completely clad in horizontal bevelled mirro, reflecting a bespoke linear design composite stone basin, overlooked by a cluster of sparkling Swarovski downlights.By contrast, the other project was driven more by the client’s desire to reflect its classical roots, but again with an up to date edge. The master bathrooms hark back to the art deco era, with the finest veneers and shadow-gap detailing, complimented by solid stone detailing. The rest of the bathrooms flowed from this, bringing in warm wood veneers such as walnut and oak and feature porcelain, with small pebbles encased in resin in one room and metallic mock crocodile skin effect in another”. We would like to know which one’s your favorite and why-let’s get the discussion started.
