The Contemporary Casa Diaz, Mexico
Mexico City-based design studio, Productora, have unveiled their latest project, Casa Diaz, a contemporary home located two hours southwest of Mexico City.
Th contemporary property adjoins a large lake in the small town of Valle de Bravo situated a few hours from Mexico City. To take full advantage of the relationship with the surroundings, a system of elongated rectangular volumes was used, with one side of each completely open towards the lake. The sloping plot and the amount of surface space led to the creation of three volume stacked in a zigzag pattern, generating spacious open terraces and irregular, sheltered patios between them.
From street view, the contemporary residence looks like a traditional building; the use of roof tiles, wood, natural stone, and the plastered facade with small openings, grants it the regional character that is required by urban planning requirements.
From the lake, the home becomes a composition of rectangular elements with large glass surfaces; like a series of typical modernist volumes, stacked in a dynamic configuration.
