Housing in Amatepec

A Creative Pool project by Manuel Cervantes Estudio (Mexico)

The ceramic house that closes to the world to open itself to nature is a project built in an area of Mexico City that has a determinant topographic condition toward a ravine. The property has a very narrow front, 14 meters towards the street, and a length of 77 meters, which made us analyze how it could be achieved that all areas will have good lighting and relate to the outside. The main access to the house is given with an almost blind volume lined with white ceramic material that creates a game between light and shadows with the different volumes.
