Here at DTI we love blogging designs from around the world. So I was pleased when the folks at DIN interiorismo, an interior design and architecture firm in Mexico, emailed us with some photos of a few of their projects. I found the following home, Casa A.P., to be the most intriguing. Here is some info on this beautiful home for a family of five:
The goal was to convey dynamism through furniture in the living room and bar, with items that can move, rotate and open to transform the space according to the desired event or activity. The breakfast area and family room communicate with each other through a wood and glass furniture, which allows the light passage and reflection, but add breadth to space. The game zone is the energy and comfort area, achieved with a color palette that highlights citric shades combined into walls, cushions and rug. Furniture consists in different size modules that play with dimensions to enclose television, video games and everything needed.
AP House stands out for its unique spaces in which wood variety is combined. This broad selection considered Maple for the bedrooms, zebrawood in the master bedroom and living room, and Indian rosewood for the dining room. The wood nobility and warmth allowed a color palette for children’s bedrooms and burned colors for common areas and the parents’ bedroom, resulting in a high design family environment.
690m2 house-building construction approx., distributed on two levels at which these areas are located as follow. Upper level: four bedrooms, TV and work areas; lower level: living room/bar, dining room, with breakfast room, family room and game zone.
Minimalism is hard to pull off and still feel inviting. Unfortunately this place feels more like corporate hq than a home.
meh. and that wall of floating rectangular cabinets would make me want to jump off a balcony. agreed about rather corporate feel.
I liked it a lot the colours!
Incredible, unfortunately… haters' gonna hate… I loved it (And I didn't see any minimalism here, mostly maximalism…)

every so often, you see something original and inspirational – this is one of those few times.
that bed, or those conjoined beds rather, is a design dream for kids – practical, playful, wonderful.
the rest of the home is a little 'meh' in the design, but it wins kudos nonetheless.
