HOUSE OM1

AE ARQUITECTOS as Architects

ouse OM1 was conceived as a solution that balances two different concepts. Initially, there was a need to create a space where modern-day activities such as intimacy or leisure are sufficed. Another requirement was for the house to have an old-fashioned aesthetic where wood and stone were the main materials used. It stands out as a unique project from the ground up. The plot conditions were distinctive, it had a pronounced slope that culminated in cliffs several meters high. It was built one level below the street level and the entrance was designed as a stairway transitioning from the street noise to the quiet beauty of the house which is slowly revealed as one walks down. 

 

House OM1 was built over a base made of a coppery stone brought from Chapala, Jalisco that helps create an old-fashioned aesthetic and enhance the sensation of heaviness in the house that reminiscences of grounding your feet into the sand. The second floor is surrounded by windows that allow the users to enjoy the views of the backyard and the cliffs. Natures presence is obvious in every space, even in the most intimate ones, giving a feeling of safeguard, comfort, and relaxation. Dark-wood finish and the brick walls help reinforce the feeling of coziness inside the house. It is a space where the users can relax, be their true self and leave any preoccupation at the door.
