Serrano Penthouse

Héctor Ruiz Velázquez always surprises me with his ability to redefine my perception of space. The omission of the usual separation of spaces, then addition of fluid geometric forms which build a sense of continuity and freedom.

So far so good. Serrano’s penthouse, in Madrid is designed by Spanish architect, Hector Ruiz Velázquez. The penthouse’s abstract nature is an enticement to a Zen-like life with minimum consumption and without clumsy fingerprints on white walls—beyond most of us. The curvy volumes create a loosened up and flirtatious space with an illusion of no barriers—a metaphor for goodness and intense contemplative reflection.

Openness and freedom are fantasies I can buy into and celebrate. And I can’t think of a better way to send off 2010 with sparkle and many clumsy fingerprints that reveal something about me—it’s just another shade of white.

Best wishes for a Happy New Year!
