The Chipicas Town Houses are four independent single buildings, which were built inside a private garden in downtown Valle de Bravo, Mexico. The vertical design was used to salvage most of the vegetation, as well as, a solution to the small footprint. The Chipicas Houses were designed with two sides of the façade made of floor to ceiling windows and two sides with a skin made of wooden lattice to gain a sense of privacy.

Each house is a three-story building with an additional roof garden, and consists of two bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, living and dining area, TV room, kitchen, and laundry room. Our philosophy is simple and logical design, architecture that is not pretentious, that is decisive in its use of local materials; timeless and transcendent.

We believe in constant communication with the environment, with the setting, with the pre-existing, as an honest dialogue that entails in situ awareness. The architectural outcome has to reflect this principle in every aspect: structurally, in function and form, and with its materials.
