Text description provided by the architects. Casa Paracaima its a private residence located in México city. Completed in 2008.

The 360 square meter house consists of two concrete volumes on a 400 sqm site and a lot of restrictions to the sides and at the front.

We used these restrictions to give shape to the house always searching for the maximum amount of open areas and good orientation.

That gave us a project that consists of two main volumes that intersect: the first volume consists of a big, structural, concrete arch 25 cm and 7.5 mts. high, that carries the other volume. This volume contains the main open area with an open terrace, with the roof passing at 7.5 on one side. The other side holds the library. The wood used to pour the concrete was used again in some of the woodwork inside the house, such as the doors.

The other volume, in contrast with the big arch, is much more closed and contains all the private areas of the house.

This volume contains the main open area with an open terrace with the roof passing at 7.5 on one side and on the other side holds the library.
