This house stands in the foothills of the Sierra Madre. Due to the slope of the plot, the architects had to adapt the design to the location. In return, the views are fantastic and the natural lighting enviable. The entrance is dominated by two oak trees that provide privacy and shade to the pool on the upper terrace. All rooms are fitted with large windows, and the flooring ranges in elevation by area to imitate the terrain.
The house has two gardens and a terrace with a pool. The front garden is more formal, while the other, which is accessible only from inside the house, is more recreational.
The original wooden railing fulfills its function, embellishes the façade and also serves as a planter.
