Conceived as a modern symbiosis between elaborate yet minimalistic cube architecture with sufficiently diminishing space for the display of art and design, Casa Cubo is split vertically into three levels and a striking mezzanine. Impeccable style and architecture are combined with dramatic modern contemporary flair.
The service nucleus is located at the front of the ground level, comprising a kitchen, a restroom, a dining room and an entrance hall giving way to the wide room with double-height ceiling and polished concrete floor, intended to host events, exhibitions or even work as a lounge that opens onto the backyard.
The mezzanine of the lounge, standing on the slab topping the service nucleus on the ground floor, houses the library, which is marked by three strong elements: a shelving unit extending the whole back wall, a strip of fixed glass next to the floor and a spiral staircase covered in wood that leads to the private quarters upstairs.
Private quarters consist of bedrooms and a living room thoroughly lit through a floor-to-ceiling opening. This is a place not only to live, but also a place to receive people in style.
