The house is located in San Pedro Garza García [in northern Mexico] in a partially-wooded area that has recently been developed in 10,000 square-meter lots and with stringent environmental protection regulations. The rocky and varied topography inspired the project to be developed in a series of boxes that flow between the contours and the surrounding vegetation. The varied layout is linked through a series of textures and independent patios, creating an interplay of light and shadow and sheltering the house from the region’s extreme climate. Different parts of the program are located in one of the volumes. Each volume is independent from the others: travertine marble, wood panels, Corten steel, u-glass or exposed concrete. The composition is regulated on an orthogonal pattern—without touching a single existing tree—in which the volumes interconnect via glass corridors, creating a “promenade” through the plot. [ES] La casa se localiza en San Pedro Garza García, en una zona semiboscosa recientemente urbanizada, compuesta por lotes de 10,000 m² y con un estricto reglamento de construcción que hace hincapié en la protección ecológica. Inspirado en el entorno, lleno de rocas y con una interesante topografía, el proyecto se desarrolla a partir de una serie de cajas que fluyen entre el relieve y la vegetación del terreno. El disperso esquema se teje en una serie de texturas y patios aislados, que juegan con la luz y la sombra, protegiendo la casa del clima extremoso del lugar. Cada una de las necesidades del programa se organiza en uno de los volúmenes; cada volumen mantiene su independencia formal de los demás al ser de mármol travertino, paneles de madera, acero corten, u-glass o concreto aparente. La composición se regula por un patrón ortogonal que se definió para no tirar árboles en el cual los volúmenes se conectan entre sí mediante pasillos de vidrio que crean un recorrido por el terreno.
