Mi3 is the name of a residential project completed by Cincopatasalgato in 2012. the company gets involved in architectural, interior and furniture design projects. Founded in 2004 by architect and designer Jose Roberto Paredes, its goal is to always create designs that reflect the client’s personality.
The residence is located in El Salvador and was built for a recently married couple with a kid. The clients requested a house that would allow them to entertain guests but, at the same time, to feel comfortable and to be able to enjoy life as a family.
Given the requirements, the architects decided to make the bar an important part of the whole design and structure of the residence. The main entrance is on the second floor, an inspiring garage occupying a large portion of the ground level, and leads directly into the bar zone.
The living room and the kitchen are complementary to this entertainment space and all three form the main social zone. In here, the ambiance is very pleasant and inviting. Abundant natural light comes in through the large windows and glass walls while the wooden floors add warmth to the design.
The house also include a dining area which has a more formal interior design, being reserved for family gatherings on holidays and other special occasions. A family room and a gym overlook the bar and offer views of the mountains and the ocean. A studio that also serves as a reading area shares space with the gym so both spouses can find something different to do while still spending time together.
The master bedroom has its own walk-in closet, en-suite bathroom as well as a large outdoor terrace. It offers privacy but also beautiful views. Like in the case of all the other rooms, the interior design is simple and comfortable in a lot of ways but doesn’t lack originality.
The second floor houses a guest bedroom decorated with a taste for neutral beauty as well as the kid bedroom which features a tree house-inspired design that gives it an energized and adventurous look.
