Cincopatasalgato, an architecture, furniture and interior style agency in El Salvador believe in turning issues about, occasionally breaking with tradition but most of all trying to reflect the character of their customers in their projects. Casa Piscucha undoubtedly conveys their vision. Constructed for an environmentally conscious couple, this home is like no other in this hilltop El Salvador neighborhood. The criteria of the future owners have been modern day and sophisticated design, getaway house feeling and environmentally friendly architecture. The sophistication of the design and style is visible at first sight: different volumes and shapes combine, as properly as various materials. Concrete goes hand in hand with wood and metal, and precious materials as employed in combination with reclaimed, poorer ones. Big glass surfaces give numerous degrees of transparency and of depth to the volumes, and bring in a lot of natural light and heat. The a number of glass facets of the house also reflect sunlight like a gemstone or some kind of unidentified flying object. The roof, with its sharp angles and translucency only comes to confirm this idea. The getaway feeling is brought in by the creation of numerous terraces and relaxation spots. The house was basically built about such a spot, as the volumes surround a central patio designed as an entertainment location. The primary rooms are oriented towards the mountains and the ocean, as an invitation to contemplation through the huge floor to ceiling windows. The electrical energy utilised to light up the property and make it look like a spaceship ready to take off is created by the solar panels that were installed for this purpose.
A selection of supplies have been utilized in creating this home: stone, metal, wood, concrete and glass.
The outside spots are as several and as big as the inside surfaces- a clear reference to the owners’; way of life.
The principal outside area to which lead a lot of doors, windows and stairs.
The infinity lap pool completes the outside landscape of the property.
Inside the floor is in concrete and the use of furnishings is fairly minimal. There is a preference for crucial pieces and small decoration.
The bedroom follows the very same lines. The bed is very standard and the headboard is created of two industrial hunting shelves. A green and brown cowhide and a framed image that leans against a glass wall are the only decoration.
At night, when the lights are on, the property seems from out of space. Rays of light emanate from it like from what we think about an UFO to be…
A wonderful example of superposition of volumes and textures.
