This Mexican countryside house was commissioned by clients who bought a nice land, with a gourgeus view over the Etla valley. The project consisted in a remodellation of an old anonimous architecture, with a nice earth blocks wall, and an extension, to host a dinner room and a kitchen, and a new volume for the studio. The aim was to get a sustainable house by what is called green technologies, like thermic panel and a system to collect rain water. In terms of material we adopted a filosofy where we combine industrial materials, like steel structural elements, and local materials, like carrizo (bamboo). After 5 months construction, a great result was reached, a place where the light is the main actor, it comes down through roof windows like a falling water, and wind, a constant fresh air cross all the way long the new areas. A worm fresh place, where you can not just live, but where you can really feel better enjoying the nature.

This is the result of a great collaboration with a mexican architect, Cesar Lopez Negrete, who took me up for this creative and stimulating adventure.
