The land is located in the limit of a closed condominium, with a height difference of 8 meters at the back, which allows us to release the views to the east of the metropolitan area of Guadalajara. To take advantage of the location, the plant plays a staggered, making the space to expand, as the visitor walks deeper into the house. A large window frames the horizon, but preserving privacy due to the change in ground level.In the middle of the field, a patio, which will become the heart of the house, articulates public and private areas, providing lighting and ventilation. In the patio there is a body of water with a tree, which captures light from the south, through a kind of chimney that blends the light A wooden cross reminiscent Barragan, seems to float in space, framing the patio. Water, tree and light, fill the space with an aura of serenity.The double height of the 3 levels are concatenated, creating a spatial continuity or fluidity. Upstairs, the master bedroom face to the east of the city. Leading the field, facing the neighboring houses, 2 bedrooms are placed. United through a balcony, which allows correctly orient your windows, protecting them from the heat of the setting sun. Formally the house seeks to be a solid with the least possible subtractions. Two subtractions generate the main facade. Downstairs, the entrance and garage, and a balcony, which in turn opens onto the street and the sky.Upstairs, cantilevered staircase leads to the terrace, which seeks to preserve the essence of the regional architecture. Contained by walls and a steel structure which in the future will be covered with plants. The terrace opens to the east, allowing you to enjoy a panoramic view of the city.
