The Hill in Front of the Glen, Michoacán
The architecture is like an accent on the words of a poem, like a comma or a question mark, but never the actual poem itself. The poem is already written by the pines, the oaks, the sweet acacia, the fireflies, the road, the fence, the neighbor’s water well, the earth, the orchard, and the nightingale.

The main actor is not the CMV House, but the landscape. The breath-taking force of a natural landscape like this one, must not be eclipsed, but complemented and strengthened. While programming a space on the site, architecture must follow the virtues of the site and nature.

The project foresees the opportunity to use reinterpretation as a consistent creative tool. By mimicking orientation strategy and a very simple functional diagram, the new construction relinks to the notion of history and accustomed-living behavior patterns.

Casa GG in Tapalpa
The project of the GG house came from a very particular commission. Our client, a middle-aged single man, wanted to build a weekend house in the clearing of a forest, on a property in the woods. In addition to the topographical constraints, we found that the project assumed unusual requirements in terms of privacy that allowed a more open relationship between spaces and the environment.

The commission for casa Oval came from a young family with clearly defined needs and aspirations. This project presented a challenge that has become increasingly prevalent among Mexican architects: to build a house in a cloistered residential community that often imposes arbitrary, traditionalist aesthetic restrictions on all construction.
