Mexican House Defies Bare White Minimalism with Some Yellow

New, 1 comment

At first glance, this spotless house in suburban Jalisco, Mexico falls right in line with the "minimalist boxes as residences" trend global architects are loving as of late, but soon enough surprising pops of yellow reveal that this particular stack of white blocks is a tad more playful. It appears that for the finishing touches of the 1,776-square-foot single-family home, architect Oscar Gutiérrez decided to use color to play up building details that would otherwise fade into the crisp white façades. Here, bright yellow railings and guttering, for example, are stand out in the house's central courtyard and two terraces, while an equally vibrant entrance door looks well-matched next to a decorative red brick wall.
