At the same time, the project was looking forward to offer 2 unique facades that could identify each house with nevertheless they had same program, same orientation and same lot measures.

CG House in Nuevo León, México by GLR arquitectos / Gilberto L. Rodríguez

Thursday, February 9th, 2017

Article source: GLR arquitectos / Gilberto L. Rodríguez

The CG House rests on a generous 17,250 square foot site adjacent to the Sierra Madre mountains. While the site’s steep slope presented a number of design challenges, the dramatic views it afforded of the city of Monterrey provided the architect with a number of opportunities.

From the street, two massive oak trees rise to provide privacy and welcome shade to the swimming pool terrace above. Due to the sloping nature of the site, a massive, exposed concrete wall defines and encloses the swimming pool and garden areas, setting the tone for the design of the house itself, which is clad in brown/black volcanic stone, IPE wood, white stucco and steel.
