Las Golondrinas

Year: 2018 Location: Valle de Bravo, México Construction: 350 m2 Team: Pablo Pérez Palacios + Alfonso de la Concha Rojas, Miguel Vargas, Christopher Torres, Jesús García, Camila Ureña

Las Golondrinas is located in Valle de Bravo, State of Mexico. The project was to be resolved in a site with no close neighbors, surrounded by forest and mountains; it was sought as a weekend house with the usual program of a single-family house.

Due to the irregular terrain and slope, the concept was to have a solid basement. This holds three independent volumes, each for a specific purpose: public area, sleeping area and service units. These volumes were held together by a single enclosing slab on top of them. Within them, the semi-open halls and remaining space is used as a terrace area with a view to the surrounding forest.
