Cotaparedes Arquitectos as Architects

The land is located in the limit of a closed condominium, with a height difference of 8 meters at the back, which allows us to release the views to the east of the metropolitan area of ​​Guadalajara.

 To take advantage of the location, the plant plays a staggered, making the space to expand, as the visitor walks deeper into the house. A large window frames the horizon, but preserving privacy due to the change in ground level.

In the middle of the field, a patio, which will become the heart of the house, articulates public and private areas, providing lighting and ventilation.

 In the patio there is a body of water with a tree, which captures light from the south, through a kind of chimney that blends the light

A wooden cross reminiscent Barragan, seems to float in space, framing the patio. Water, tree and light, fill the space with an aura of serenity.

The double height of the 3 levels are concatenated, creating a spatial continuity or fluidity. Upstairs, the master bedroom face to the east of the city.

 Leading the field, facing the neighboring houses, 2 bedrooms are placed. United through a balcony, which allows correctly orient your windows, protecting them from the heat of the setting sun.

Formally the house seeks to be a solid with the least possible subtractions.

Two subtractions generate the main facade. Downstairs, the entrance and garage, and a balcony, which in turn opens onto the street and the sky.

Upstairs, cantilevered staircase leads to the terrace, which seeks to preserve the essence of the regional architecture. Contained by walls and a steel structure which in the future will be covered with plants. The terrace opens to the east, allowing you to enjoy a panoramic view of the city.
