El Mirador House by CC Arquitectos Mexico (1)

Designed by CC Arquitectos, the 459-square-metre residence named El Mirador House is located on the 95-hectare El Eterno estate in Valle de Bravo – a forested municipality that wraps one corner of Lake Avándaro, approximately 150 kilometres southwest of Mexico City. El Mirador house serves its purpose as it is located on an edge of the site, where the emblematic lake of the area can be seen from above. It was designed based on respecting the forest where it is located, anchored to its topography and reducing its constructive impact. The materials used are from the region, and railroad ties from old train tracks where recycled for the exterior cladding.

The structure is a combined system of steel and wood, and retaining walls are made of local stone. Many of the interior walls are clad in white oak that adds a touch of warmth to the spaces while remaining contemporary.

The program consists of a large family room that connects to the outside expanding the social area to the front terrace. It has a bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen has a large bar made of slate stone that serves a dining area. The relaxed program and its arrangement in the space reinforce the character of relaxation and intense social life for which it was designed. The main entrance has a large reflecting pool that ends in a trough for horses, while a low wood wall hides the parking area.

“El Mirador is half buried on one of its sides with the purpose of protecting the habitation spaces from the climate where nature, views, and rustic finishes are the main components, seeking as a goal that these characteristics will last through time,” explained the studio, which is led by architect Manuel Cervantes Céspedes.
