The first time I visited this property and took in the desert and the diaphanous, clear water running along a horizontal line in the background, I felt the enormous drive of water under a scorching sun. This piece of land, located in the middle of a coastline dotted with “All Inclusives,” would have to be transformed into a box that contained its own sea –practically its own air– given the happy circumstance that the universe had created a desert joined to the sea along a horizontal line. It was the purest, most minimalist landscape a horizon could have drawn. On either side, this dreamlike scenery collided with what humans consider to be aesthetic and build and baptize as architecture. I wanted to draw my own version, apart from the rest.

Casa SE was built in a traditionally residential quarter located in the western parts of Guadalajara. It was commissioned as a permanent home for a family of 4 adults. The primordial drive behind the project was to create comfortable spaces and to allow them to establish their own dialogue with the outside through a series of private terraces. The program is accommodated in two levels, with the first floor encompassing the public areas of the house, and the second floor containing the dormitories and various terraces. The prevalence of windows throughout the envelope allows a great deal of daylight to flood the interiors.

Triangulo Corona is located in the State of Mexico on the outskirts of the metropolitan area of Mexico City, on a property of irregular topography crossed by two major regional thoroughfares. Its context is an industrial zone rich in the so called ‘maquiladoras’ and storehouses, neighbouring primary and intermediate schools, a health centre and street markets. The residential environment is one of self-construction, where materials appear in their raw state, devoid of finishes, a quality that defines the architecture and environment of this low-income area.

Floating levee piers to trap sediment and divert freshwater:
The idea behind this project attempts to combine an architecture with technology, where by-products of new materials create impossible forms because computer technology has become an inherent part of the design process, such is the application of typology in this project.

The house is built on a fan-shaped 800 sq. mt. plot, open to the northeast. After volumetric studies, we decided on an H scheme, rotating the north body to get the most sunlight and south aperture, and tilting the roofs to the north.

This is when I began playing with this new language of architecture. The client requested organic forms for their oceanfront home on the Pacific Coast of Mexico.
These shapes are caressed by the sea air as the sun gently travels its curves.

The G House layout departs from the site’s recognition and also from the willingness to conquer the terrain after understanding its solar paths.
From the basement garage come all the service areas and house equipment, giving its dwellers the possibility of independent worlds within the place.

Natural light was the top design priority for SENS: it defined the façade design, and the floor –to – ceiling glazing, and from half way up light can enter the interiors, framing the majestic views on to the Popocatépetl, Iztaccihuatl, Santa Fe, Inter lomas and Paseo de la Reforma—views deserving pride of place.
