Casa OVal in Jalisco, México by Elías Rizo Arquitectos

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Article source: Elías Rizo Arquitectos

The commission for casa Oval came from a young family with clearly defined needs and aspirations. This project presented a challenge that has become increasingly prevalent among Mexican architects: to build a house in a cloistered residential community that often imposes arbitrary, traditionalist aesthetic restrictions on all construction. Privacy and space efficiency were the two driving concerns for the project. The house envelope needed to afford sufficient visual privacy from the street outside, while also providing enough porosity to allow generous amounts of natural light into the house.

Article source: Elías Rizo Arquitectos

On an emblematic avenue in Guadalajara, a short distance from a city landmark in the heart of a cosmopolitan area, this building rises in an attempt to become a reference in Guadalajara’s cityscape. The project aims to create an imposing building that is kind both to its surroundings and the environment. The project consists of 6 commercially available office levels plus commercial spaces. The office levels have the possibility of splitting into 4 private stalls giving the building a dynamic and variable trait with up to 24 distinct office spaces.

Casa DTF in Jalisco, México by Elías Rizo Arquitectos

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

Article source: Elías Rizo Arquitectos

Casa DTF was built within the confines of a private residential community and raised similar privacy issues. In the case of Casa DTF the house program was resolved in three levels. The program distribution allows for a clear separation of private and public functions. The basement houses all service areas and the garage; the ground floor, which rises half a story above the street level, includes all public areas such as kitchen, dining and living spaces as well as a studio. The second level includes four bedrooms.

La Planta in Jalisco, México by Agraz Arquitectos

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

Article source: Agraz Arquitectos

Where there was once decomposed organic matter, now there is art, sports and leisure. It is the conversion of a sewage treatment plant into a multidisciplinary center.

After being built nearly two decades ago in Tlajomulco de Zuñiga, this place never really worked and saw its contents come into a rapid estate of decomposition. Years later, local authorities called for new meanings for the place, making it a great challenge.

HOUSE WIND in Jalisco, México by Agraz Arquitectos

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Article source: Agraz Arquitectos

Every project has a connotation that makes it different, unique and unrepeatable. The Wind House has two unusual features, the first one is that it is in a suburb that has not been built yet, having no neighbors whatsoever, and it faces the stunning Primavera Woods. The other one is it’s calling to be a house where kids will grow, the youngest a newborn and the eldest only four years old. And this is doubtlessly the real job, to create the scenery where this kid’s childhood will take place, and therefore several aspects are handled differently.
