Being one with nature is personified clearly in the renovation of this contemporary rustic house.

Remodeled by architectural and design firm Elías Rizo Arquitectos, the Casa RO house is all about mixing authentic vintage touches from the original house (which was originally built in the 60s) with a warm, modern feel.

The owners brought in the firm to work their magic as the house was a little too cold and old-fashioned for their style, and Elías Rizo Arquitectos definitely delivered. The firm transformed the rectangular-shaped structure to a bright haven with all the right authentic touches—including the original marble flooring. 

The contemporary rustic house exudes an organic coziness, while still keeping harmonious with the straight lines of the original structure.
