멕시코 산림지대에 5채의 주말주택이 지형에 따라 분산되어 있다. 주변은 바람소리를 울리는 소나무로 둘러 싸여져 있는데, 각 집은 6개의 볼륨으로 구성되어 있다. 북쪽으로의 볼륨은 단단하고 폐쇄적이고, 남쪽으로는 개방되어 있어 정원과 숲 풍경을 향해 있고 자연 채광의 대다수를 받아들이는 형태이다.
In a vast forest area in Valle de Bravo, Mexico, five weekend houses are dispersed along the ground, adapting to the site´s topography; surrounded by pine trees that echo the sound of the wind.
Each house (identical in typology as the rest) consist of six volumes position in such ways that they generate a void, a central ¨patio¨. The ¨patio¨ grants veiws, silence and intimacy.
To the north the volumes are solid and closed. They open up to the south, the garden and forest views, benefiting the most from natural light.
On the lower floor: living, dining, the kitchen and one of the bedrooms expand their limits to the exteriors to join terraces, patios and the garden. On top, three bedrooms frame the views to the magnificent pines.
The materials are from the region: brick, wood and soil. The soil, taken and reused from the excavations to bury the foundations is the main material. All the walls are covered with it.
Thereby, architecture emerges from the place.
