Casa Lluvia Blanca southwestern-kitchen

Casa Lluvia Blanca

Nestled into the quiet middle of a block in the historic center of the beautiful colonial town of San Miguel de Allende, this 4,500 square foot courtyard home is accessed through lush gardens with trickling fountains and a luminous lap-pool. The living, dining, kitchen, library and master suite on the ground floor open onto a series of plant filled patios that flood each space with light that changes throughout the day. Elliptical domes and hewn wooden beams sculpt the ceilings, reflecting soft colors onto curving walls. A long, narrow stairway wrapped with windows and skylights is a serene connection to the second floor ''Moroccan' inspired suite with domed fireplace and hand-sculpted tub, and "French Country" inspired suite with a sunny balcony and oval shower. A curving bridge flies through the high living room with sparkling glass railings and overlooks onto sensuously shaped built in sofas. At the third floor windows wrap every space with balconies, light and views, linking indoors to the distant mountains, the morning sun and the bubbling jacuzzi. At the rooftop terrace domes and chimneys join the cozy seating for intimate gatherings.

The window frames were made from steel angles and hand forged by the local blacksmith in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Where is the skylight here? A soft glow comes from the ceiling in the distance, aligned with a window framing some backyard trees. A look from the opposite direction ...
Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: A Modern Mexican Paradise
A small kitchenette allow the clients to make a quick snack or meal upstairs, too. "We design very much with the journey of life," says Cathi. "It's about taking the mundane things you do every day and celebrating them through architecture. Every little detail matters. That's what we try to focus on."
