Taller Hector Barroso is a Mexico-based architectural practice specialized in designing exceptional private spaces blended into splendid wild landscapes.
The house presented below stands in the middle of the forest in Valle de Bravo, Mexico. The complex consisting of five houses almost disappears among the mountain breathtaking landscape. All the volumes based on the same typology are positioned around central patio, which except for framing spectacular view also serves as a silent, harmonious spot to chill.
Each one of the houses consists of the ground floor with the living room, dining room, kitchen and one of the bedrooms, patios and the garden. In turn, the first floor, provides three bedrooms featuring wide window openings designed in order to take advantage of the magnificent view of the pine forest.
The material that architect chosen belongs to the site’s architectural typology. Brick, wood and earth were combined in order to correlate with the surrounding. The building emerges from the site, that is standing on, as the raw material used for all the walls was dug out from the earth to bury the foundations.
