Text description provided by the architects. The house is located in Sayavedra County in the Esmerald zone, Mexico State . The compositional scheme of this house seeks to exploit the natural slope of the land of ten meters optimizing maximum circulations. We defined several volumes of 6x6 overlapping each other creating a series of terraces and double height ceilings using different spaces. Thus, in the first level is a bedroom and a service area (dressing room and bathroom). At the next level is the terrace, living room, bathroom and kitchen. In the last level there is a bar area with terraces television side. The west of the house borders a forest, which is why most of his views are directed towards it, using existing trees as lighting filters.

The social area (kitchen, living room and terrace) is a continuous space to be deconstructing in different functions through changes in the heights and exterior-interior intromisions through terraces.

The structure is a metallic system 4 inch each 1.50 m that make the framework of the house. In this way the windows are modulated pieces that appear and disappear according to the intentions of the space. The rest of the house is apparent concrete formwork cutting it to the modulations of the structure. All these elements cause the woods between the house and its terraces disappearing slabs, thereby making one more element in the landscape.
