We uncover Narigua Home in “El Jonuco” a lovely area where we get pleasure from from 360º of magnificent views. This mountain-enclosed neighborhood reminds us of numerous mexican towns exactly where tall mountains restrict the valley exactly where its inhabitants settle. Right here, its residents dwell alongside with the standard vegetation and wildlife discovered in northern México.
The site is densely populated by nearby trees that pose a serious design and style challenge: A house that enjoys the see of the mountains although respecting the current ecosystem. Simply because of the horizontal growt of the cedar trees that block the view, a “forest of columns” is not an option. The only feasible remedy is to lift the house and make it fly over the tree tops. A mild slope road reaches the ground floor, 10m above the road, in which all the esencial spaces are found. To protect the existing greenery the floorplan is divided into zones that get about a group of outdated cedar trees. Due to the fact every level responds to different situations every single prepare, in itself straightforward, is diverse to the other people.
The developing is divided in 3 various volumes. The 1st a single contains the garage and storage spaces. The entrance hall, master bedroom and the staircase to the reduced level are located in the 2nd volume although the third volume contains the kitchen, service and social regions.
Outside daily life ocurrs on the west side of the home in a group of terraces that overlook the focal level of the residence: 2 spectacular mountains that nearly touch.
The reduced degree serves as a plinth for the groundfloor and is made up of a variety of “recyclable” chambers with furnishings that allows them to transform into the guest bedrooms.
This floor also consists of 2 half-buried technical rooms that totally free the rooftop to take pleasure in an enormous belvedere surrounded totally by the landscape.
Contrary to its massive exterior picture, inside the residence the transparency of the glass helps make the exterior views portion of every day lifestyle. Windows dialogue with thick walls, flat roofs and the timber beams we find in tradicional mexican architecture.
The material palette offers the project a rustic, timeless appereance that serves as background for a variety of objects. Antiques live alogside with contemporary furnishings even though the paralell planet of paintings, masks and sculptures claim our interest. The house’s treasures allure our eyes to stay within before scaping to the natural situation on the other side of the glass.
The diverse aspects of the system, placed in a juxtaposition of volumes define the complicated image that emerges from a straightforward distribution.
The colored walls and tremendous floor to ceiling windows reflect the landscape and make the home dissapear. When observed from a distance it is effortless to mistake Narigua for a geological accident.
The roads and walls are paved with the stones of the land and the colors of its filth, its form contrasts with the mountains and trees. Narigua residence is a stone operate humbly placed in an amazing landscape.
