House of stairs, by Dellekamp Arquitectos, is a housing complex built on a slope in the centre of Valle de Bravo.
It consists of three residential townhouses on four levels, oriented to the south. It was designed with a system of terraces to minimize excavation and maximize the views toward the lake in a functional and symbolic manner.
Most of the trees in the property were preserved and new ones were planted to replace trees in poor condition. While the project respects the surrounding landscape and uses local materials, it creates its own language through its spatial layout and its connections.
