Located in the lovely mountain landscape of San Salvador Casa Piscucha is a striking holiday home that transports you to a world of relaxation and serenity. Greeting you with its distinct silhouette the home’s unique roof was designed by Cincopatasalgato to offer ample shade and usher in some visual splendor.
The owners of the house include a family in their fifties with a couple of kids as well as their mother who wanted a house with the aura of a timeless Japanese design. The interior is clad largely in Japanese cypress that has been brought from the family’s farm in the forest near.
One of the key elements defining the design is the presence of spaces that encourage family activity and constant interaction with nature. A separate television room with movable timber screens in the living area ensures that the kids’ focus is largely kept away from television.
Bold window frames and shingle-style architecture typify the exterior while the interior is clad in cool neutral hues that seem to be borrowed from both coastal and cottage styles. Exposed wooden beams and metallic surfaces add a dash of industrial charm as well with a salvaged wooden accent wall standing out visually in the front hall.
The trend in contemporary interior design is to keep the backdrop of the room as neutral as possible in order to achieve the most striking visual impact. This creates a perfect opportunity for the accent colors to shine through. As a rule the more neutral the room the greater the prominence of the accent hues.
A large bedroom for children is shared by both daughters and was created combining two smaller rooms that existed in its place. Old abandoned shelves and reclaimed wooden pallets have been turned into shelves with simple carpentry skills and some repainting!
A large living area with a modern kitchen and dining space greet you inside. Bright pops of orange and yellow breathe life into a home that is dominated by the many shades of grey and cream. The kitchen overlooks the porch that features a tranquil garden a Jacuzzi an infinity-edge pool and even a children’s pool.
