About Casa Catorce

Casa Catorce, designed by Yiyicaru Arquitectos, is a single-family home in Villahermosa, Tabasco, Mexico. It features spaces that resemble a boutique hotel. A reserve and narrow blind facade with a basalt lattice conceal the house. This design allows only necessary natural light, creating a barrier between the city’s climate and the home’s private spaces. The minimalist façade and a sturdy gate of burned rustic wood add brutalism and mystery. This design completely isolates the house from its urban context.

L-Shaped Layout with Expansive Spaces

The house has an L-shaped layout with expanding corridors and spaces. The majestic garden becomes the focal point. The sounds of water overflowing from the infinity pool and wind caressing lush vegetation provide deep relaxation. Therefore, the outdoor spaces become key elements of everyday use.

Luxurious and Dark Material Palette

The dark and luxurious material palette includes exclusive elements. Mirrors and glass with coppery tints create optical illusions. These reflections allow you to observe details from any angle.

Boutique Hotel Concept

Clients wanted their home to be a secure space, eliminating the need to leave for recreation. Careful design of spaces and attention to detail in interior architecture and decoration achieved this.

Casa Catorce provides its owners with a luxurious and private oasis in the city. The combination of distinctive architectural elements, a majestic garden, and a carefully selected material palette creates an exceptional living experience.
