Designed by the mexican firm bgp arquitectura, ‘Casa MTY’ is a house located in the forest of San Pedro Garza García, a city in north part of Mexico.

The varied layout is linked through a series of textures and independent patios that create an interplay of light and shadow while sheltering the house from the region’s extreme climate.

SuperNikka is one of the few custom-built boats to have been produced in Italy in 2015, constructed by one of the country’s outstanding yards, Vismara Marine, and signed by the Irish studio Mills Design.
