From the architect. Perugino 42 is a five-town residence project located in front of “Parque Hundido” in Mexico City. It combines continuous indoor/outdoor spaces with a magnificent view of one of the main parks of this crowded city.

The initial approach for Perugino was to divide the land into parcels producing five single-family residences that maximize the linear, enclosed, narrow space. The main goal was to maintain an interior-exterior connection. This was achieved by dividing the main building structure into two separate volumes connected through glass bridges, generating a private open deck in the center that allows the entry of natural light.

The three story houses were thoughtfully planned to provide it’s buyers with everything they need. Private parking space and a fully equipped room that can be used as an office are located on the ground floor, separated from the main house. The first floor has two bedrooms separated by a deck for privacy. The second floor allocates the dinning and living room with a balcony that extends into the park. This area is connected to the kitchen through a glass bridge and to the roof garden situated on the third floor.

The houses are designed to fill the needs of a contemporary eco-friendly market by providing a complex rain-capturing and sun-heating water system.

The materials used for building were mainly concrete for the core structure and “balau” wood for the façades. The software used for this project was SketchUp Pro 7.1 and LayOut 2.1.

I'm in love with these spaces and materials.

Teodoro T. Lapone · December 04, 2010

Typical of 60´s years....
Architecture made with autocad.
Boring and previsible

Willber · December 04, 2010 09:55 PM

They didn't have autocad in the 60's
