The project’s beginnings lie in the clients’ inheritance of a number of polyester structures recovered from a modular house where they spent their weekends in the 1970s.
The owners bought a new plot of land one hour from Mexico City in order to house these six parabolic modules and asked us reassemble and recycle these fiberglass shapes. A concrete plinth was used to raise the fiberglass structure a meter above the ground level in order to create more generous indoor spaces. The simple geometry of the additional elements together with the texture of the exposed concrete used for both interiors and exteriors provides a strong contrast with the smooth surfaces of the restored modules.
