This residence is located in a mountain slope surrounded by trees in a forest near Mexico City. It was of utmost importance not to tear down any trees in such a privileged site. This translated in a forced floor plan design, always attempting to avoid disturbing the trees. Because of site’s sloping terrain, access is through the top level through a welcoming foyer. This foyer is located within a connecting structure that unites the two main buildings, the first one being the main building that houses all public rooms such as dining room living room, library room and bedrooms, all enjoying views of the garden; and a second supporting structure aligned with the street that houses service areas such as laundry room, storage and service areas.Save this picture!Floor PlanRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAMetallicsTECU®Copper Surface – Classic CoatedMetallicsSculptformClick-on Battens in Ivanhoe ApartmentsThese two structures surround a heavily inclined interior wooded courtyard with a 60° slope. At all times the house adapts itself to the topography. Structural elements were cut in specific areas where a tree was nestled in order to avoid disturbing it.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaThe specific characteristics of this site, its inclination, a northern orientation, and being cloistered underneath trees, it was essential to provide air and warmth to the house. This translated into a clear central staircase exposed to the south that captures sunlight and functions as a radiator that provides warmth to the interior areas of the house, thus balancing temperatures.Save this picture!SectionStructurally, the house consists of a metallic structure allowing for large spans, and extended overhangs. All interior partitions are therefore block walls sheathed with wood paneling and stone that are freestanding and do not interfere with the metallic structure and the floating ceiling above.
