Mexico. Two concrete houses for three generations

T+E Arquitectos has built two independent residences, but in connection with each other, combining glass facades and rough concrete.

Designed by T+E Arquitectos in Tuxtla Gutérrez, Mexico, Casa LV1 is a complex of two residences for a three generations family (an elderly couple, their young daughter and their granddaughter). Each of the houses is developed independently, with some shared areas such as the entrance, services and gardens. The first volume is designed for the elderly couple and features a panoramic terrace. The second one presents a 4.85m deep cantilever that creates a repaired space under the rooms. The connection between the two houses is emphasized by the use of glass facades, which open onto the landscape. The main material used is white concrete, which has been cast on site and not finished.
