There are times when a house happens to become a true work of art. It is not usual in these times but you can still enjoy some architects who really did works of art with their designs. It is the case without doubt of the distinguished Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta . Here we have the opportunity to see one of his last works since the teacher unfortunately died in 2012.
This beauty was built in Beverly Hills and is news because it has recently gone on sale for a price of about 16 million dollars. Of course it is an important price but taking into account the situation, the size and the architect who designed it is not so exorbitant.
The house is a whole that breathes and transmits the ideas of the great architect, the exterior walls of great thickness and the use of tremendously striking colors in the interior decoration tell us about its author.
Volumes, geometry, light and shadows, are some of the classic tricks of Ricardo Legorreta and here we can clearly enjoy them.
The use of color is successful, attractive and tremendously beautiful. The spaces of the house are dreamy, a huge library that becomes both a work and a meditation area.
This living room with dining area forms an open space that overlooks the terrace where there is another seating area to enjoy the mild Californian climate.
The kitchen is elegant and sober, a charm that does not overwhelm or dazzle excessively but that is a very busy space.
The terrace located next to the interior living room has a fireplace and enough space to rest under the palm trees.
The master bedroom also enjoys the opening to the outside that has much of the house.
A superb cellar that can hold 13,000 bottles of wine is another of the small quirks of the house.
And of course in Beverly Hills, the place of residence of so many people related to the film industry, one can not miss a room of own projection, wide and perfectly conditioned.
