EM HOUSE

TaAG Arquitectura as Architects

The commission a residence in a gated community of Zapopan for a family of four. After the analysis of program implemented, the family having teenage children, we conclude that the house had to work at various levels of simultaneous interaction. With independent spaces that could eventually participate in the same event by joining each other to greater capacity for visitors.


Taking advantage of the natural topography of the land (an upward slope of approximately 2 meters) allowed us to have three levels from street. In the first half-buried body garages and were allocated a studio with bathroom with direct access from the street, which can serve as the event for visitors (social) or used as a guest room if needed without interfering with the rest of the program of the house.


The ground floor is arranged as a bay with a central courtyard that functions as large foyer and distributor of it, that immediately connects with the terrace, the garden and the living room with windows that facilitate folding runs merging spaces. At the other body creaking houses the kitchen, laundry and services.


The upper level is defined by two gaps: the double height foyer and the dining room that organize private space. At the southern end is located the master bedroom, the filter center as family room TV, and finally, to the front of the property the two bedrooms of the children. The language volumetric commitment to sobriety and unique treatment of its surfaces: glass, stone, wood and white stucco. In contrast to the abundant vegetation and leakage selected visual terrain own diamond shape.
