For this Project, the client requested a small house for a family ranch in the Estado de México province.
The design stems from an “L” shaped scheme which allows for the public and private areas to be organized clearly.
We break away from this scheme by adding a courtyard, which generates a cross shaped plan. The cross embraces the existing vegetation in this 40 year old ranch.
The layout generates smaller private gardens with different degrees of intimacy which percolate through the house thanks to an open corridor.
The corridor is highlighted by a series of vertical planes which open and close in response to the adjacent program.
