Single Family Residential project in the mountains of Monterrey, Mexico.
The name comes from the large collection of art and art-objects that has grown over the years; the family (and the collection) needed a new and bigger home to properly display the many sculptures, paintings and installations, also wanted were dedicated spaces like a wine cellar, a game room with a full service bar, a hobby room, storage, a private terrace and garden, and a swimming pool.
The original name of the project, 'Tree House' came from the requirement to include three large Oak Trees that stand mighty in the property, and were incorporated into the design process that became the finished house. A main feature of the house is the central "transparent" space, creating a volume that divides the internal program into distinct areas and provides for natural light throughout the year without compromising comfort (given its orientation and altitude). The exterior cladding is marble, interior floors are grey granite and polished marble, for the service and walking areas as well as the garage and ramps Porphyry slate is used.
