Description by Taller David Dana: The Paseo de las Lilas House stands 15 meters above ground. The main floor seats at the treetops level. This atypical architectural intervention seeks to create a direct bonding with the surrounding nature & also to maximize views & daylighting. The results are outstanding After we looked at the site and its context with detail, we decided that the foundation for this proposal would be a rustic/contemporary design, a fusion that produces perpetual appetite for innovation. On one side we integrated a few fragments that are recurrent in Mexican architecture and history. From the other we inserted contemporary ideas to counter culture the conventional architecture.

The project is developed under sidewalk level, on an existing construction of 748m2 built on 3 levels. The main idea of the Paseo de las Lilas House was to retake the already built elements from the structure and house and, protect it from the natural conditions of the land. The project is developed within the last two vertical blocks of the structure, in this way the project manages to contain open spaces interacting with the outside.

Based on a traditional program, it was agreed to project the house with a strong contemporary language, straight lines and pure volumes, inviting nature at all times to be an important part of the spaces inside the house, in this way the first level serves as the area of ​​common areas where the kitchen and dining room are related directly The Rimadesio glass sliding doors allow flexibility in the configuration of the kitchen space providing privacy when needed.
