The project is located in the western side of Mexico City in Bosques de las Lomas. It is composed of two rectangular prisms placed one over the other creating an “L” shape. The vegetation from the site surrounds the project to make it feel immersed in nature, as well as the materials used for the project. The project combines concrete, glass, stone and vegetation to generate different spaces and sensations. The use of different materials reflects the activities that take place in the interior of the house. The solid concrete volume houses the private activities and it seems to be floating because of the use of glass on the ground level, which is the transparent volume that houses the semipublic activities.
The house has three levels. The basement floor is where the multi-purpose game room is located, along with a patio. The ground floor houses a family room with TV living room, kitchen, eating hall and a small deck for a BBQ outside. The first level holds within itself a king-size bedroom, two smaller twin bedrooms with independent bathrooms, a fourth bedroom and bathroom, plus a dresser, a living room and a small study.
