White by Day, Color Washed by Night Residence Reinvents Minimalism

With its sophisticated elegance and timeless finesse, minimalism is more often than not the aesthetic philosophy of choice for contemporary architects designing private houses. Underpinned by the modernist principles of all-white, uncluttered interiors, asymmetrical compositions of geometric forms, functional simplicity and open plan layouts, modern villas are a paragon of minimalist design but they can also seem somewhat sterile and uniform. Enter Mexico City-based architectural studio Miguel Ángel Aragones, whose recent project Rombo IV, a wholeheartedly minimalist villa in the prestigious Mexico City neighbourhood of Bosques de las Lomas, breaks away from the modernist design mantra, lighting up the entire residence in an ambient deluge of neon colours after the sun goes down.
