Mexico is a country kissed by the sun. That’s why the Miguel Angel Argones Architects for a modern house decided where they can use the strong presence of sunlight both in the interior and in the exterior. Natural light can create sensations and moods. The sun is the architect, the compass, the starting point and leitmotif of your projects. A modern house nowadays should plan the light in both summer and winter. The sun has to be captured, manipulated, seduced and its light saved. Not scattered, but softened. The art of playing with artificial light transforms the modern house with a completely white interior in a colorful, colorful world.

That modern house La Palma faces south, from where it bathes in a continuous light at sunrise. The sunlight from the west has a completely different color and duration. So that the whole house shines inside and out by reflecting the sunlight, the designers have chosen the white color for every living space.

In order to create beautiful and interesting effects, the architects have chosen different colors and tones for the lighting – yellow, blue, red … So the architect draws with light on the walls as if they were canvases. The natural materials such as marble, wood and glass harmonize beautifully with the colorful light installations.
