Contemporary AE House, Mexico

AE House has been designed by Mexico-based design studio Twentyfourseven. The project was compledted in 2010 and this stunning contemporary home can be found in Mexico City.

AE house is an exploration on privacy and materiality, the house is situated in Lomas de Chapultepec, in Mexico City and consists of three levels. The house uses the restrictions in the urban plan to its advantage in the placement of the internal spaces, challenging the typical configurations of similar plots in the area. The project offers an alternative to the centralised volumes that are closed and devoid of interaction to their sites and looking outwards through wall enclosed patios.

The proposal of the project changes this interaction by displacing a thick volume to the back of the site while a thin volume is pulled forward, creating by such an action a cross diagram that allows for patios to emerge with views, illumination and natural ventilation of the spaces. The intersection of both volumes creates a central void where the connection between the different volumes opens up to the sky.Images courtesy of Pim Shalkwijk.
