I am an Ecuadorian art restaurator and contemporary artist. I have been working for many years restoring churches in Quito historic center.
When an arquitect friend showed us the project, we fell in love with the place. The atmosphere is magic and we can see many of the churches I restaured, from our room or when we are having breakfast.
I have also contributed to the interior design of the flat. I specially ordered the floor tiles from an old artisan in Ambato. He also made for us two stone lions that we placed in the house to protect it. This is why it is called: Casa de los leones. I designed the kitchen. I decorated the appartment with some of my works and some antique paintings. I have also have a small art room and atelier in the 1st floor where the works of art are on sale.
The flat is minimalistic in design and furniture. We just put there a few nice things. As we use it only when go on holidays, we have the basics for my family to feel confortable. We like to be surronded by beautiful things but not overloaded by objects. We have personally chosen all what is in the appartment for the family to enjoy. I hope you will like it as well.
My family and I we return as often as we can to our magic place in Quito.
We love art, culture, arquitecture and good food. We can help you to plan your trip and give you some hints about interesting things to visit, expos or give you tips about my favourite restaurants and places. We will help you to have a trip to Ecuador beyond the typical touristic circuits.
If you are an artistic person, you like contemporary art and design, arquitecture, antiques and exploring, this is the place for you. You will not be disappointed. Welcome to Casa de los leones!.
