This wooden surface seems to float, while acting as a green roof that captures rainwater. An extremely rational plan creates generous interior spaces that accommodate events for many guests. The house contains a living room, dining room, play area, movie projection room, spa, kitchen, and a vast terrace where one can watch and admire one of the owner’s passions: soccer, the national sport of Mexico.
