“Impeccable on the outside, the luxury Mexican house sits on a plane to 2.5 meters above street level at its lowest part, developed at the centre of the ground giving rise to a courtyard in front and a garden behind.
“Apparent simplicity and exquisite details this House is resolved with flat roofs between a courtyard and a garden in which ambiguously intersect Interior and exterior facings which stand out clearly the constructive system based on concrete, glass and steel.
“This residence was built with the characteristic style of architecture from the 60s and inspired by modernism.
“The programme includes two levels on the access platform and a basement which is accessed from the bottom of the street, this leading to the parking lot.
