Text description provided by the architects. Thinking about the Palm Spings Kaufmann house designed by Richard Neutra about its adaptation to the horizontal landscape, we designed this project based on a linear trace: a light structure and wall openings facing the Sierra Potosina.

The site is faced Northwards reason for which the designed has been moved 30 degrees West to improve the solar lightning during the cold days and to maintain the wind circulation inside during the warm days, creating a functional house in terms of comfort, since the weather is moderated in both cases.

In the south façade, a solid element covers the opening, this allows the caption of solar radiation during the day and its transmission to the inside during the night, guaranteeing a temperature increase during the night against the cold registered through all the year.
