Housing in Amatepec

Best Implemented Façade or Interior Project Using Ceramics

About the project
This architectural starting point generated a total spatial and visual integration and thus, each one of the spaces destined to green areas become an extension of the interior spaces. The main access to the house is given with an almost blind volume lined with white ceramic material that creates a game between light and shadows with the different volumes. Using an existing Jacaranda as the center of an aromatic garden, the pedestrian entrance to the ground floor is generated. This access is located at 1.5 meters from the sidewalk level, with the aim that the volume does not stand out and respect the ground levels. The program consists of three volumes on the ground floor that integrate a social area with a living room and dining room, as a multipurpose space that allows coexistence with the different green areas and an external social space.
