Text description provided by the architects. Situated in the area with the highest residential growth in Guadalajara, the concept of the SGC house is based on one particular strategy based on the analysis of the site and the requirements of the client, the program is divided in two, taking as the central axis the vestibule and vertical circulations, this allows to distribute in a more efficient way the spaces, giving them more useful area and take full advantage of the hallway areas and horizontal circulations.

In this way, the house works as a promenade, starting when you get off the car, or getting to the house walking, you almost always find yourself in places surrounded by patios, covered and open terraces, different views to the street, the neighbor’s constructions and garden areas.

Ground Floor Plan
Ground Floor Plan

The ground floor contains the different social areas of the house, divided by the main axis, on one side a TV room, a bathroom and the service area are placed, and the other side contains an open area with the living room, the dining room, and the kitchen, while the upper floor just contains the private areas of the house, the bedrooms and a private study room.

A marked contrast is given to the main façade between the different levels of the house; a black finish is given to the lower floor to give a more closed and secured view of the house from the street, emphasizing the upper floor, that is fully opened to the street and always in touch with the dense vegetation of the street.

The geometry of the facades emphasize the independence of different interior areas of the house, which through some change in materials, colors, and textures, create vanes and wall cuts causing the different views of the street, the patios, and the backyard.
