Working with the Landscape: Contemporary Mexican Home with Multi-Level Design
In the constrained urban setting, space matters immensely. Every square foot of space needs to be put to use and a tough terrain is never an excuse. Nestled on a residential lot with a rocky landscape, House CB125 designed by JVL Arquitectos is one such contemporary home which works around obvious constraints to create an inviting and relaxing living environment. The lot the house sits on is not just rocky, but is drastically uneven. Complicating the matter further was the homeowners need for a cost-effective house that would be built on the land without moving the earth in any drastic fashion. This gave birth to a floor plan where multiple planes and structures were united with flowing design and a curated garden.
