These four houses are built inside a private garden in downtown Valle de Bravo.

The vertical design was used to salvage most of the vegetation, as well as, a solution to the small footprint.

Each house is a three-story house plus a roof garden; displaying two sides of the façade with floor to ceiling windows and two sides with a skin made of wooden lattice to gain a sense of privacy.
