A contemporary way of life at T House, Jalisco, Mexico

Contemporray-Architectural-Design-Mexico-City-01

The T House is a 2003 project designed by Mexican architectural practice Agraz Arquitectos. The contemporary home, which can be found in Jalisco, Mexico gracefully blends three main elements aesthetics, spatial authority and efficiency.

According to the architects: “With a simple package programme in each one of it’s floors, T House raises from a rectangular scheme. Whereas packages on the first floor contain the services (kitchen, laundry, patio and service area) and social activities (entrance hall, living room, dining room and bathroom), the double section on the second floor, encloses mostly private areas (bedrooms, TV room and bathrooms).

“Based on the three walls that hold within the described packages, the contemporary Mexican property responds to an architecture that reflects the back to basics ideas. Subdivisions are much more than subtle, if not in existent.

“The main goal of house was to satisfy the contemporary way of life scenario requested by our client a design aficionado.

“This is the reason why the site plan was developed from this central idea. Spaces, material, and even details, were carefully planned around this global concept, exposing it easily as it can be. For instance, the marble had to be opaque for this house, and the shower accessories had to be selected from top designers.

“Due to the symbiosis between architecture and thought, every single detail passed through a meticulous  selection process of its material and finishing, and the result ended up more than genuine: three parallel walls facing a background where borders dismantle themselves, becoming light filters from the gardens to the interior design.

The T House is, itself, a set of see through skins that shift life images and carry the opaque conditions of any material to transparency in a continuous movement.”
