The Site

The site is located in Del Valle, one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Mexico City.
Actually it is benefited by its central location and its urban planning system, counting with
wide and tree lined streets for both, vehicular and pedestrian street, as for its numerous
parks and yards, making it an area with plenty of green areas, easy access to important
avenues and with quiet interior streets that make Del Valle neighborhood one of the most
comfortable places in the city.

The Program

The architectonic program for a young couple which will live in the house consists in a main
level where the social areas are located, with a pleasant living room with a chimney, dining
room, bar, wine cellar, kitchen and family room. In the first floor the bedrooms and a studio
are located. At last, there is a second floor with the service area.

The Project

The project was started by studying the site conditions and designing a rational square floor
plan in which every space was used the best way possible. Nevertheless we found out that
this method was creating some visual conflicts from de interior to the exterior, so we
decided to extend a part of the house to the back of the lot, achieving with this a better
orientation of all the spaces within a highly organized grid.

The Facade

The ventilated facade was covered by a NBK ceramic cover, which is a natural material of
terracotta that provides warmth and durability to the project. This house is the first single
family housing project in Mexico covered with this material. This puts the house on a global
level in which technology and its constructive methods are an important part of the design
