Izar Houses in Mexico celebrate the natural landscape, light, and rainfall

29 Jun 2022 News

On a steep site in Mexico, Izar Houses by Taller ADG Alonso de Garay pay exceptional attention to energy in terms of their approach to natural light and rainfall. Green roofing, use of local stone, and a façade lattice made of specially-treated wooden slats contribute to the integration of house and landscape.

Entry to the houses is located through an access plaza where the inclusion of water and vegetation fosters a sense of connection with the natural environment. Once inside, private areas are located on the lower level with more public and social areas upstairs. A skylight made of locally-sourced stone and vegetation connects the two floors.

The lobby acts as a type of distributing space to he main living room, service and service kitchen. A staircase leads to the lower, more private areas.

Next to this is a dining room/kitchen for special events and a covered terrace with space for secondary, open living and dining areas, along with a support bar.  Next is a fully open terrace with a swimming lane.
