San Miguel Centro architectural masterpiece features Zen Gardens

Architecture aficionados, beware—this design jewel proves beguiling from the entry door!

Evoking the best of modern architecture from Mexico, the USA and Europe, the home grants a gracious—and obvious—nod to architecture masters Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles Rennie Macintosh, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Ricardo Legorreta.

Never before has San Miguel witnessed a home with such tall and grandiose “corner-turning windows” (Wright himself coined the phrase for a glass corner where a column would normally stand) that opens the home visually to the lush Rob Johnson-designed gardens. The entry replicates Macintosh’s museum-collected Hill House ladder-back chair, and even the Parroquia-view rooftop glass sala—ideal for sunset cocktail parties—evokes the National Historic Landmark Farnsworth House, underlit here to simulate a floating effect.

High-volume ceilings float above warm tzalam hardwood and travertine floors throughout the ground floor, which offers one-level living boasting a master and secondary bedroom on this level, in addition to the island-anchored chef’s kitchen, grand entertaining areas, both inside and out, and artist’s studio. A floating marble staircase, enclosed in a glass-ensconced tower, connects to a second master suite, oversized master bath with sunken tub, and a large, light-drenched office, all with rooftop access.
