The composition of volumes, including furniture and built-in cabinets, fills the generous open spaces without an overwhelming presence.  expansive monolithic forms in contrasting colors provide a seamless transition from one space to another.

The wall separating master bathroom from sleeping quarters is punctured with three vertical windows that create a day-lit master suite with views of biscayne bay; on the bedroom side, the openings are integrated with the custom-made headboard.  low profile furniture in the main living area maximizes cross ventilation, taking advantage of the views and ocean breezes in the flow-through layout.  using colors predominant in central america, deep earthen tones and rich dark woods are complemented with bright red accents.

The visual appeal is complemented with an equally sophisticated ecological sensibility:  dual-flush toilets, low voc paint, reclaimed plumbing fixtures, recycled marble tiles, and the re-use of existing floors make an aggressive remodel gentle on our planet.

The apartment, renewed by DEN Architecture, offers a unique spatial experience: “The composition of volumes, including furniture and built-in cabinets, fills the generous open spaces without an overwhelming presence.  Expansive monolithic forms in contrasting colors provide a seamless transition from one space to another.”

Both, the living room and the kitchen/ dining room offer incredible views over the city’s skyline. The rooms embrace neutral colours, mixing wood with dusty brownish- grey tones. The result is a smooth transition between the environments. To bring a shade of colour to the earthy tones, sprinkles of fiery red complete the décor. Fresh and inspiring, the Horcasitas Apartment is much more complex and bright than before
