Casa SR’s style is preeminently Contemporary Mexican, characterized by large and carefully crafted stone walls, steel elements, wood as a constant element in finishes and furniture, along with tall, spacious areas, all organized for optimal natural lighting and cross ventilation. Furthermore, the house was designed in harmony with existing vegetation, which in turn dictated the conceptual architecture and landscaping design.

Additionally, Casa SR has passive and active bioclimatic conditioning systems such as: thick exterior walls, crossed ventilation, proper orientation, sewage treatment for water reuse in the garden, orchard, and green roof. A carfully tailored solar array covers the roof lightening the electrical load.

In the “smart home” department, the house is outfitted with automated systems, such as Lutron for controlling artificial light and shading curtains. Low E glass was used in all western facing windows to limit solar gain.

Overall, Casa SR is a project that boasts high-quality design, cutting edge technology, and systems that work together to ensure the maximum user comfort, without compromising esthetics, harmony, and functionality.
