From the architect. The site is surrounded by the convulsive presence of buildings in all sizes, types of use and circulations, where simultaneously an extreme calm and the main circulation of the city live together, conforming a confuse and complex environment, result of a territorial fight on the boundaries of the city.

Similar to a geode, a mineral formation amorphous on its exterior, but that once open or broken shows a void full of semi-precious crystalized nature structures; the house proposes a neutral skin, dark, absolute, on the faces that conform the cube, and as a cut or excavation, a different geometric formations appears, with a high contrast in a red color (tule, brick, mud... ), showing the inner richness of the house... in a didactic way, the house pretends to show its inner structure, where the main rooms are open to the south, sheltered from the north.

i found pretty interesting the outside look; but those quality lacking drawins hide many mistakes, like the entrance door space next the stairs, and some mirrowed pictures confuse a little bit

Nice RT @livingroombuzz: Love the clear-cut distinction in N&S facades RT @archdaily House B2 / Vaillo + Irigaray http://bit.ly/EVN6c #archi

Stunning, is the word. Each of the home's exceedingly different facades are well-executed. One is opaque, but not to a fault, including interestingly placed windows, and the other is transparent, but not to a fault, allowing for a modicum of privacy through the use of louvers. The L-shaped plan merely enhances the contrast of each personality, and they are united by a bright, clean, interior.
