"Casa Vertientes" is a single-family house in Mexico City. The proposal is to design a house where we have the smallest number of possible structural walls, and to achieve wide and open spaces to the exterior. It was proposed a metal structure embedded in the walls of lateral boundaries, integrating these as part of the structure, using it as the facade of the house, without coatings.
The structure is designed in a reticular way, where each space forms the program of the client's needs, resulting in an interesting mix between interior spaces and outdoor spaces with great transparency between them and throughout the house. The design process was like playing on a chessboard.
The main materials proposed were: steel, wood, glass and marble. The house is developed on four levels. The first level is 2 meters below the average level of the sidewalk, in this we find parking and services, in the second level we find the social areas and gardens, in the third level the most private areas such as bedrooms and family, and in the last level we find music studio.
