Casa PE, Tapalpa
Design: AE Arquitectos
Location: Tapalpa, Jalisco, México
Casa PE is a project developed by AE Arquitectos in the mountain of Tapalpa, Jal. The house is composed by two main areas: an area dedicated to a domestic lifestyle, for its inhabitants to live comfortably.
The other one features different spaces, such as a terrace to receive visitors.
Conceptualizing this house was a challenge due to the steep nature of the terrain, and the high amount of trees. Architects kept in mind to keep the surroundings as untouched as possible, in order to respect the environment.
To help maintaining a cozy temperature inside, stones from Galicia, Spain, were used as a construction material. This mineral serves to preserve warmth.
Contrast plays an important role in this building, not only because of the diversity of materials that were used (such as steel structures and different kind of stones), but also for it’s facade. The precise geometry of the house and it’s color block appearance stand out from the woods.
