Casa Del Auga - Ojuelos de Jalisco, Mexico

Another awesome residential design. And it combines with my two favorite elements -- water and glass. Water was the main protagonist and driving force of this design, as it was designed for a professional diver. I don't why I love these two mediums so much. Maybe because I'm such an open person that there are no secrets to be hidden...that's a joke because I'm enigma wrapped in a mystery. No but seriously, there is something quite unique about them that I personally believe, if used correctly, enhances the aesthetic of architecture. 

There are three levels to this house: two floors and a basement. The high ceilings, glass facade and green spaces gives it a very "light and airy" feel. And of course me being the very detailed oriented person I am, am drooling over the spider joints they use on the far left glass facade (see 3 images below for close up.) I used to model every spider joint in my Rhino files for school...which only added to the slowness of me being able to rotate the damn thing.

This is sexy architecture to me. I gotta fever and the only prescription is more spider joints!

They added garden spaces throughout the interior spaces.

The front entrance. They call it the water mirror. I would love to walk across, roll and swim in it...you know just to soak it all in.

I LOVE!!! this lighting feature and overall the interior space. Very clean and minimal. It actually has a very Swiss aesthetic to it. And isn't that just a perfect still of the scenery
