Casa Westway is a renovation projects of a single family house built in the late 50’s in downtown of McAllen Texas.

The main idea was to break the shape of the gabled roof into several pieces by unfolding planes. This gave us the chance to create cross relationship which transforms roof into façade and façade into roof, and provided interior spaces richer value of natural light and articulation.

Each room were linked to social area to provide a more fluent relationship between spaces and continued to exterior patio in order to extend the living room to outdoor space along with the roof system.

This materiality of the roof seeks to create an expression that will change over time to look for an intimate dialogue with the neighboring house.
