Prensa House

Best Implemented Project of Private Residence

About the project
The primary intention of the project was to genuinely perch on the 5 meters sloping topography of the site, for which two platforms were made to best adapt to the silhouette of the terrain.
Based on that, the project is developed in two modules, at the access level the services, garage area, and the staircase was considered; this, in turn, is a skylight that allows lighting and framing the pedestrian access to the second platform, which is the habitable level.
The primary composition of the house is defined as a nucleus of social interaction, based on this, the areas of greater privacy are developed in opposite directions, north and south.
In terms of materiality, there are contrasts in the interior and exterior appearance. On the one hand, on the inside, the wood and white covering in the walls creates a timeless atmosphere, and on the other hand, in its exterior expression, it reveals the forcefulness of the stone character.

Applicant and author of the project
SINTITULO Arquitectura is an architecture and landscape office based in Morelia, Michoacán, founded in 2008 by Celia Granados and Luis Jacobo Villafuerte. They are identified by the production of projects with a multidisciplinary collaboration approach, as well as the exploration and understanding of various environments and inhabitants where their work is manifested. Hence the emergence and denomination of our workshop that does not undergo a single trend or architectural task.
