MO House by LVS Architecture & JC NAME Arquitectos10

The MO House project is not a conventional architectural program. It is rather typical with a proposal for residence being uniquely designed. It does not have any link with social rules and regulations. Experiments and researches or deep studies have resulted in the rise of this kind of architecture.

The project hopes to bring about a new change in architecture designing, thinking out of the box, breaking the established canons and introducing new shapes and materials. It establishes a different angle of viewing the house. The design involves two rectangular volumes being traversed by a bridge. The concept tries to break the house unity into two different dialogues thereby distinguishing the public and private areas, services and living and even between parents and children.

I really like this sofa. I would say it’s modern but not over the top. I like the color, which is a neutral tone of grey, very beautiful and that would look great in any modern home. This piece of furniture looks very good but it feels even better. It has very think cushions that provide you with extreme comfort. It’s very soft and comfy and it makes you wish you could stay there all day. It’s probably pieces like this that have contributed to the creation of the expression “couch potato”.
