Text description provided by the architects. Located in the woods in the area of Valle de Bravo, San Sen house is designed with a steel structure floating on the ground. It is covered in wood and glass. The construction system allows us to open and close the envelope depending on views, orientations, etc.

Designed entirely on one level from a circulation that articulates all the spaces in areas that function independently. The house is anchored to the ground by a service tower clad in stone.
