One family and its needs are a tough situation for an architect to handle, but when it is about two families sharing the space and each having their own requirements, it almost seems impossible. Not for architect Giovanni Morelo, the designer of Casa Penon in Girardot, Columbia.
Many bedrooms, a pool and a garden were a must. But aside from that, it was all the mastery of the architect to create beautiful transitions between the inner and outer spaces. The architecture lacking in columns permitted unobstructed views from the social area to the outer one, with sliding windows hidden in the walls for a more open perspective.
Bright colors and no excessive decoration elements are the key to perfection. At night, the artificial lighting starts working its magic upon the whole house, giving it a perfect glow. Along the swimming pool, a wooden deck makes the connection to different areas of the house.
