Single family house in Tijuana, on a site where we are developing ten other single family infill houses on sites that range from 300 sq m to 450 sq m. This house is designed as an experimentation into weight. Juxtaposing a solid black box, that is covered in volcanic stone native to Mexico on top of a lightweight white box that contains the public part of the house. The black box, which is the private part of the program, is perforated by vertical openings that are not percieved from the outside, creating a set of terraces around the whole perimeter. The first floor has openings throughout as to blend the interior and exterior spaces. From the street, you enter through an axis that slices the site in two, having a view towards the city. On the right side there is a studio for the owner who is a psychologist and the main entrance to the house is towards the back of the site. The lower part of the house is an open floor plan that contains the living room, dining room and kitchen.
