This house is located inside of a very exclusive residential development in Mexico City that has an excellent golf course. It is situated in one of the areas with more economic growth in the last years, but the design allows maintaining the needed privacy to have security and tranquility for the residents. The site of the house is privileged and surrounded by a fantastic landscape.
The remodel project for this house was a big challenge that combined the integration of in and outdoors with important alterations to make a warmth and contemporary ambiance for the whole space. There was also a modification on the architectural program to add a bedroom. The original design had great windows that were left to make the most of the views and have natural light.
The main façade had important changes to give more privacy. Some elements were added to restrict the access inside the premises. The garage was modified with a T shape metal structure and a canopy also made in metal. Two columns made of archeological stone were also incorporated to have a geometrical composition in front of the large windows.
The main access has a corridor with a water mirror that runs towards the house and communicates vertically -with a window that was placed on the façade- to enhance the invitation to this peaceful space. The combination between elements and materials in the exterior resulted in the new image the house required and a perfect balance between harmony, sensibility and warmth.
