HDJ 65 in Baja California, Mexico by T38 Studio

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Article source: T38 Studio

On a sloping site with a privileged view of the city, we designed a house for a young family. The main design criteria was that every interior space would have a relation with exterior space. To accomplish that, our approach was to integrate outdoor space at every level of the house, be it a garden or terraces. Other spaces we would open up to the exterior by extensive use of glass positioned to take advantage of the landscape surrounding the site.
