Located in Valle de Bravo, just two hours from Mexico City, La Colorada is a residence whose statement revolves around the prominence given to nature and the shape it takes to achieve it. The great success of this project lies in how we managed to distribute the program within the forest.
The architecture is positioned as two dislocated pieces that mark a distinction between the public and private areas. On the upper floor, the public area occupies a minimal construction footprint to prioritize the terrace. On the lower floor, the private area is located in front of and perpendicular to the public area. The A-Frame construction system of the public area collects water for recycling, filters light, and passively ventilates the house. This circulation acts as a threshold that connects the two moments of the house: the contemplation area (public area) and the introspection area (private area).
