Casa Azul in El Salvador

I think I am becoming obsessed with white interiors sprinkled with colorful accessories. This house is close to perfection in my world. An exotic location, high ceiling living room, white interiors, concrete, all with a yellow touch.

By eliminating walls and incorporating a series of interior gardens, architect José Roberto Paredes creates an eclectic and inspired El Salvador beach house.
Tasked with creating a simple, elegant retreat with a mix of aesthetic details, Paredes divided the 4,000-square-foot house into “islands of activity.” He left the main living space—which has zones for cooking, dining, and lounging—open to the elements, an unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean on one side, and a swimming pool on the other. Since his clients love to make meals together, Paredes placed the kitchen in the center of the room and outfitted it with a custom yellow hood and a prismatic wood sliding wall by the San Salvador–based designers Claudia & Harry Washington. Paredes interspersed interior gardens by the local firm Organika to further integrate the house into the surrounding landscape.

“A home should not be invented entirely by one person,” Paredes says. “It should be a collection of thoughts and experiences. Collaborating with different designers and artists is the perfect way to create this eclectic feeling.”
