Text description provided by the architects. The house is located in Cuernavaca, and is composed of two main volumes that are confronted by a courtyard running through them. One of them, facing east, is fully open on the ground floor and the other, facing west, is fully closed to the sun.

The circulation between the two volumes is through a covered bridge, a lightened slab forming a large, open but covered space in the middle of the courtyard. Its facade is virtually closed to the outside, except for a window in the master bedroom that opens onto a line of Eucalyptus and Laurels in the distance.

The morning sun will enter through this window only for a couple of hours, allowing to enjoy the trees for the rest of the day.
