From the architect. Located in a residential area on the outskirts of the city of Mexico, in the colonia Lomas de Chapultepec.

Impeccable to the outside, the house sits on a plane to 2.50 meters above street level at its lowest part, developed at the centre of the ground giving rise to a courtyard in front and a garden behind.

Quality materials, clear colours and fleeting reflections on glass are at the service of comfort and design, to gardening camouflages the borders and builds a landscape and atmosphere of privacy.
