The four-story Casa Jardin was built with their outdoor-loving homeowners in mind. Designed by Cinco Patas al Gato and located in San Salvador, El Salvador, the house is structured around a central garden where all rooms have direct access via covered pathways.

A covered pathway that leads from the house to the garden is walled in glass on one side and with a partial stone wall on the other.

The kitchen’s corner disappears with sliding glass doors making it truly feel like an outdoor space.

The outdoor dining area is covered and feels like a real living space even though it’s outside.

Three sides of the living and (real) dining room have sliding glass doors that open the room up and make you feel like you’re outdoors.
