Casa Murray

DISEÑO ESPACIAL as Architects

A kin to the process of building a ship in a bottle, the construction of Casa Murray was conditioned to the amount of space in which it is placed. Projected and built by Diseño Espacial, the house is enclose dby irregular constructions, remains of imprecise divisions of lots that gave place to a narrow corridor, an ease men the at functions as the only Access to the house. It is a construction without facade, without parking space, without a gas installation, solar collectors or a single spot where the street can be observed. The house, which serves as a studio for his owner, possess an introspective design that does n't antagonize with the materiality of the surrounding buildings. Under the appearance that the house rises exclusively with cinder blocks, a subtle structure embedded to its perimeter allows the use of all of the lot's compactness, liberating all of its two principal floors. Only a thirteen-inch column ext to the garden provides structural support. In its interior, timber surfaces even out the harshness of the exterior's concrete, using metallic profiles with black paint to articúlate the constructive language of the house. These profiles conform the main bodies of stairs, screens and furniture, the latter partially built with residual construction materials. The Project offers affordable dignity in a chaotic part of Mexico City, floating almost invisibly in the unkempt lattice of its south.
