Contemporary ML House, Guadalajara, Jalisco

Luxury-Villa-Design-Guadalajara-Jalisco-02

Guadalajara, Mexico-based Agraz Architects have designed the ML House project. The luxury home can be found in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

ML house has been conceived as an architecture that is capable of containing and perpetuating the spirit of each member of the family; an art form that enhances the day inn, day out with its singular presence and becomes the lively back-drop for the making of the personal memoir.

According to the architects: “The project proposes the dissolution between the urban and the residential boundaries; the street transforms into plaza and the interior becomes a garden that overlaps within the private and the public. Space configuration becomes a variable resulting from the interplay between light and shadow.

“Once the front sculpture is left behind, the entry garden appears as an overwhelming water mirror that captures surreal images of the sky and the tree branches that overflow from within the fountain.

“The entry event occurs under the undulating wood ceiling that clarifies circulation around the interior court; natural light permeates the double height ceiling through a wooden skylight and transforms sunrays into seasonal patterns. Natural light becomes an ornament that transforms light and shadow into an ever-changing play of surface and texture.

“Vertical circulation is conceived as a continuous spine that emerges from the underground and favours visual permeability through different levels and functions. Its architecture makes a gesture of fragile articulation that is consistent with the transparency of space and overlapping of function.

“Living and dining in the ground floor benefit from their southern orientation and make direct contact with the exterior gardens and patios; the upper level, even though having interesting views towards the exteriors, makes the best profit out of the scheme by using the central court as the catalytic element that allows better independence from its urban surroundings. The family rooms in ground floor and in the upper level stack up one upon the other towards the north, in order to make a better use of light for their destined activities and also in order to conform to the volumetric intentions of the main elevation.

“The luxury Mexican home not only gathers together the effort of two architectural firms that highly appreciate the refinement of design, but also promotes the participation of artists, industrial designers and a photographer in order to transform space into an adequate scenario for the ideal way of living expected by its inhabitants.”
