This Mexico City residence by DCPP Arquitectos features pivoting doors and sliding glass walls, enabling rooms to open out to the cobbled and herringbone-brickwork courtyards around its perimeter .
Regional studio DCPP Arquitectos designed Jardín Residence for a plot in the city’s San Angel neighbourhood, with an aim to mould the residence all around a series of interconnected gardens and courtyards.
The two-storey developing is around T-shaped in program, dividing the interior into 3 main wings.
“The form of the residence comes from the idea to take benefit of the region of the house to keep a backyard as large and as uniform as attainable,” mentioned the studio.
“With the intention to merge the interior with the exterior, was conceived a volume that splits in two the garden area to give the visual continuity.”
Broad sliding doors front most of the ground-floor rooms, offering each its own perspective of the grounds.
Herringbone-patterned parquet flooring features within these living spaces, and the same pattern continues out onto the brick patios, helping to connect indoor and outdoor spaces. Weeds have been allowed to expand up by way of the gaps in the brickwork.
Glazed walls allows views by way of the residence from the gardens, whilst a pair of higher-level windows set above the front and back doors flood the entrance hall with light.
Walls task from the facade in between every single of the rooms, producing privacy for the succession of spaces.
Whilst the primary rooms are arranged all around the gardens at ground level, a guest space sits on the smaller upper floor and has its own private terrace.
Broad steel beams support this upper floor guest area, facilitating an open-program and column-totally free residing area at ground degree.
“The residence was designed to perform on 1 level, with the main bedroom and services included on the ground floor, and leaving a guest bedroom on the prime floor,” explained the architects.
“To avoid putting central columns in the area, we chose to integrate huge steel beams, which collectively give a special twist to the housing, and a variant game of shadows.”
