Situated between two tall houses that shield natural light between them lays an inspiring Tijauana, Mexico home that incorporates creative wood accents and modern accessories to create the perfect family home. The narrow property lot had to be creatively planned and designed and Casa Becerril reflects the careful forethought from the design firm Gracia Studio.
Through the use of industrial materials such as polycarbonate, wood, concrete and steel, it’s a wonder that the interiors feel warm and welcoming. As it should, due to the design firm wanting to create a family home that would bring the family closer together by sharing in one main common area.
‘The main purpose is to promote the family interaction by having only one area to share time together. The prismatic form of the house responded merely to the construction process and for the simplification of interior spaces. Making spaces more open and less complicated.’… Gracia Studio
The gorgeous wood used throughout the home softens the industrial materials, and paired with marble and glass in the kitchen and living spaces creates a family home that isn’t dwarfed in aesthetics by its taller neighbors. The neutral palette of colors, and the marrying of uncomplicated interior spaces, in Casa Becerril look like a beautiful retreat to come home to and enjoy family and alone time.
The heart of the home lies in the center, with the kitchen and dining space looking into a courtyard equipped with a Jacuzzi, fireplace and barbecue area. Once again, the family inspired theme of the home is repeated throughout, as the design warrants interaction and visual cues to keep the home unified and warm. Casa Becerril is an inspiring home that creates the feeling every family cherishes in their humble abode.
