project: MOR_MORALES house
location: Aguascalientes, Mexico
surface: 450 m2
project team: AVP_arhitekti, AMBIENTA architects
The house is located in a private and exclusive zone in the SE part of the city. The site is surrounded by a thick forest and a lake next to the lot. The proposal establishes that connection between the house and the context by unfolding one of its longitudinal faces towards the lake and the natural environment thus merging the system and the site. The main body contains the social zones with a double height connecting the other rooms. A horizontal volume intersects the main space solving the activity flows and articulation between the areas. There is a gallery that connects the social to the private area. The access is emphasized by a cantilevered slab. All the bedrooms are opened to the lake sight and are linked and connected by a transparent platform that floats above the exterior garden. The roof of the horizontal body is used as a terrace covered by a metallic structure.
