Casa Diaz [ENG] [ES] [ENG] - This property adjoins a large lake in a small town situated a few hours from Mexico City. To take full advantage of the relationship with the surroundings a system of elongated rectangular volumes was used with one side of each completely open toward the lake. The sloping plot and the amount of surface to be realized led to the creation of three volume stacked in a zigzag pattern generating spacious open terraces and irregular sheltered patios between them. From the street the residence looks like a traditional construction; the use of roof tiles wood natural stone and the plastered facade with small openings grants it the regional character that is required by urban planning requirements. From the lake the house is perceived as composition of rectangular elements with large glass surfaces; a series of typical modernist volumes stacked in a dynamic configuration. [ES] - El terreno de este proyecto colinda con un gran lago en un pequeño pueblo a unas horasde la ciudad de México. Para aprovechar al máximo la relación con el entorno se optó por un sistema de largos volúmenes rectangulares con un lado completamente abierto hacia el lago. El terreno en desnivel y la cantidad de actividades programadas dieron lugar a la creación de tres volúmenes encimados en zigzag para obtener grandes terrazas abiertas y patios irregulares protegidos entre ellos. La casa se percibe desde la calle del pueblo como una casa tradicional; el uso de tejas madera piedra natural y la fachada aplanada con aberturas pequeñas le da el carácter regional requerido por las indicaciones urbanísticas. Vista desde el lago la casa se presenta como una composición de elementos rectangulares con grandes superficies de cristal; como una serie de volúmenes modernistas típicos apilados en una configuración dinámica.
