Text description provided by the architects. Located in Mexico City, P House is built as a single linear stroke of concrete walls that form the silhouette of the house. Two concrete volumes covered with an outer skin are intertwined embracing the natural surroundings creating a central courtyard and a portico to the landscape.
A curved wall leads through access and reveals the first views of the house in which different planes intersect; first is the courtyard and then the garden.
The interior walls, as concrete curtains, slide to let light penetrate inward while showing exterior views and leading us through the house. In the first concrete volume on the ground floor are the public spaces: living room, dining room and games room, all open to the views of the northwest and connected to the garden and terrace. This volume on its first floor contains the private program: two bedrooms that rotate to the east views and light, and a third bedroom that opens to the garden perceiving a view of a wooded area.
As it is located in a wooded area, the silhouette created by the concrete walls produces an effect of fusion between the interior and exterior.
The house develops a dynamic relationship between solid planes and transparencies, allowing crossing views throughout the house, keeping the central courtyard as a core protected by the movement of the concrete walls.
