By using typical elements of the Mexican vernacular tradition combined with local materials, the Mexican Architecture studio Rozana Montiel designs Albino Ortega House.
A stone wall closed to the outside and furrowed by the steps of the staircase that lead to the level of the house, encloses the piece of land; the same wall defines the patio inside, the paths and the rooms, opening onto the luxuriant vegetation of the garden.
On the second floor the bedrooms and a large terrace overlook the patio, while a light wooden volume that houses the main bedroom rests floating on the solid stone basement.
Shadings systems and sliding mobile wooden windows and doors act as filters and provide continuity between the inside and the outside. The water element in the patio and in the garden pool refreshes the spaces in the house and fills them with air and sound.
