Find stillness in this one-of-a-kind designer residence.
Nestled high in the Bajio mountains and loved for its seemingly eternal spring – San Miguel de Allende is a small town located about 150 miles north of Mexico City, where the country’s busy elite retreat into their summer homes.
Conceived as an off-grid hideaway for two, Casa Etérea is a 75-square-metre dwelling that sits on the rugged slopes of the extinct volcano Palo Huérfano, only 8km (5miles) from the UNESCO World Heritage Site of San Miguel de Allende.
The goal was to construct a “theatre to nature” from which you could experience the mountain, therefore sustainability was essential to achieving true environmental integration. In order to achieve this, the house runs on solar energy, collected rainwater, and uses a patterned ultraviolet coating on the mirror making it visible to birds while remaining reflective to the human eye.
Casa Etérea is liveable installation art that uses mirrored panels to diffuse the boundaries between the wild and the structured. By distorting the perspective of where the observer begins and the landscape ends, the project aims to evoke a deep sense of awe and oneness with the wild, and to beg questions about our role as stewards in the preservation of our ecosystems.
A beautiful and intimate space, that was designed without partition walls – making the entire house one large room. From the central living space and bedroom, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors frame vistas of towering cliffs, while opening to connect with a decked patio area and solar-heated pool surrounded by olive and pomegranate trees.
The house also features an exposed glass shower with views to a staggering ravine, and an intimate kitchen equipped with amenities for light cooking. If you do fancy some privacy remote-controlled outdoor PVC shutters are added to provide security and privacy. This one of a kind stay is located on a magnificent 8000sqm property, and you can enjoy large, open outdoor spaces.
