The project is located in a private subdivision in the northern area of Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico, this land has an unique topographic characteristic, because it was within an interior glen, which was characterized by having an almost downward slope constant throughout it, this generated as a result a difference of almost 10 m between street level 00 and the lowest point of the land, it is due to this situation that the decision was generate a proposal based on fragmentation in 4 differents blocks in a descending way, in such a way that these are integrated into the natural unevenness of the site, prioritizing the generation of openings towards the north, which is in this case where there is a direct correlation with the natural forest area.
From top to bottom, block 1 is initially positioned, located in the highest part of the building, in this we have located the entire area designated for the private area of the house, with a main distributor that connects the different bedrooms, a white room, and an access to the roofs. Block number 2 in a descending way is a small half-level that is made up of the recreational areas of the house, it has a gym, TV area, library, a study and its own outdoor terrace with an excellent view of a part of the city, as well as to the forest that is had in the later part of the terrain. Continuing the descent, block number 3 is the main access to the house, in this we have located the social areas of it, a main entrance at a triple height, with a sculptural tree in its central part connects us to the different spaces in this area , living room, dining room, open kitchen at the back, with an uninterrupted view of the terrace and the pool, as well as a study with a guest room function complete the program of this block.
And finally there is block 4, in this we have located the service areas of the house, the parking area and a games room with direct link to the terrace area, pool and its connection with the surrounding natural environment.
