An impressive modern house architecture – Casa Piscucha is a residential project, completed in 2012 by Cincopatasalgato.
It is situated on a hill top in Los Sueños, Santa Tecla, El Salvador, and features spacious and airy interiors. The owners desired a “summer home” feeling with modern and elegant design.
Nature friendly modern house architecture
Casa Piscucha was designed to provide unobstructed views of the surrounding mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The modern house architecture impresses with a series of decks, cleverly and spectacularly organized around a central patio which serves as an entertainment area. The result is a beautiful modern home which combines comfortable living and airy space and sophisticated design. The house is especially impressive at night when the illumination transforms it to gleam with a golden light in the dark. The name of the house – Casa Piscucha- comes from the word “piscucha” which is a piece made from plastic bags and thus implies the idea of a living space which gives a feeling of being “ready to fly”.
Impressive modern house architecture
The design of Casa Piscucha incorporates some creative design concepts. Energy and water saving ideas were integrated in the modern house architecture, including floor to ceiling windows for natural light and ventilation, waste water treatment and separate rainwater treatment, solar panel lighting, and recycled wood for the outside coating of the main room. The central courtyard is connected with the surrounding rooms. The interiors are very spacious and all main rooms offer panorama views of the surroundings and it is the roof design that gives the “ready to fly” feeling.
