The concrete has both structural and finishing functions, adding it to a diverse palette of materials such as glass, wood and stone. This palette is complemented with specially selected furniture to emphasize different elements of every space.

The public areas of this modern Mexican home have been designed in the back to take advantage of the broad views. Private areas were arranged in front to exploit and enjoy the sunlight.

The connection between the spaces is generated through a hallway, flanked by the terrace and a reflecting pond and by an adaptable double-sided bookshelf, that connects the study and the garden. The visual axis is a sliding lattice that allows the space to transform, playing with the privacy of each space.

The landscaping was used as a linking strategy to the site and as a compositional and ornamental element.

The lag between upstairs and downstairs generates a continuous terrace with floor-to-ceiling windows, achieving excellent natural ventilation.
