This is a project by Parque Humano and it is located at Bosques de las Lomas, Mexico City, Mexico. Project's program: Single family house. There are ten images for Casa Chico 1.
Situated in Bosques de las Lomas, a residential suburb located on the west side of Mexico City, (19°11'33" N 100°07'50" O). The site faces a protected natural landscape rich in jacaranda trees to the south.
A residential unit for a Mexican Business man (CEO of Mexico´s biggest telecommunication company) and his family (wife and 4 children) .They own a large collection of Oaxaca Masters paintings, modern sculpture and art books.
For the concept of this project, we created a strong dialogue between Architecture, Art and Landscape Design. As a result, we designed a geometrical green mosaic pattern fountain towards a glass façade in the core of the project, creating a game of constantly changing light and shadows which gives life to the house. Is a node that through its reflections and color, borrows (as Japanese garden artist) the existing landscape. The use of mirror glass as a third eye was very important, not the fact of seeing oneself, but being able to see at once what it is in front of us and to see what it is behind of us.
