stuff we drool about

Casa Picasso

The word small may be relative, a small house has an awful lot of benefits, from less clutter to the possibility of splurging on higher-quality items you really love. Less space and less stuff also means less cleaning, repairs, and a lighter mental load of household chores. Casa Picasso is a stunning piece of architecture which really makes the most of its small footprint. Designed by Workshop Architects, this stunning 145 m2 private residence located in Mérida, in the Yucatán region of Mexico, turns every square inch of available space into a functional one through the use of innovative design choices and materials. The aim was to make use of every inch of available space and encourage indoor-outdoor interactions, it is so brilliantly laid out that it couldn’t be more geared towards rest and relaxation. Throughout the home light colors have been used to transform the small space into one that feels spacious and inviting. These light colors can even be found in the Polish white concrete floors, which keep the space feeling fresh. Vegetation and natural wood accents add to the feelings of relaxation and comfort. The tiny house really is an oasis in the city.
