Located in Tecamachalco estado de México, on a hillside over looking Bosques de Reforma, a remodelation and an addition was required to an existing late 60s house,
Since the client bought the house for its distribution the existing house was carefully cleaned leaving bigger and better areas, then a new part of the program was required, an independent apartment for the clients daughter.
Once entered the garage the house divides into 2 separate entrances leaving total independence to the addition witch is accessed through a spiraling staircase 2 flights up.
Resembling a ballet dance composed of 2 bodies in motion, the looping sensual forms that changes angles coming out of every curve was inspired by the ballet dancer who is going to inhabit it.
Once you arrive at the apartment it is separated in 2 half levels, the first containing the kitchen dining and living area then half flight down the t.v.room and the master bedroom. Taking advantage of the roof of the existing house and its skylights this roof becomes a terrace with the remainings of the chipped lava rocks used for the main wall of the house, the skylights become acrylic stools, benches and chaise lounges that change color with a led system inside. A selection of prehispanic organ plants is made to add a touch of vegetation giving this area a lunar feel.
