Surrounded by the vegetation that is so emblematic of Jalisco, and made with two geometric forms facing the exterior, the Sofia Country Club residence (El Arenal, Guadalajara, Mexico) has been designed by the architect Pablo Tapia using PORCELANOSA's most natural pieces.
With a fully open structure formed by large windows, the façade has been created by several irregular cubes combined, Tetris style, into a single design with XTONE large-format sintered compact and Boston Stone by Porcelanosa as the primary wall tile.
A harmonious design with a limestone and slate base
The grey tones that predominate on the façade contrast with the browns and greens that border the garden area with its rectangular swimming pool, the surroundings of which have been created using Amsterdam limestone in beige by L'Antic Colonial.
This aesthetic, with a base of stone and earth tones, is best reflected in the bathrooms on the property's top floor. The décor was designed by the interior designer Gabriela Eugenia Tovar, mixing warm and cool tones, and in each of the bathrooms the floor and wall tiles have been united to give greater scope to every inch of the space. The first bathroom combines L'Antic Colonial's Airslate Graphite with the Vintage Habana Dark washbasin, designed in black marble for L'Antic Colonial by Yonoh Studio. These pieces, in turn, frame the Lounge taps by designer Simone Micheli for Noken and the fine furniture by Gamadecor.
