Textual content description equipped by way of the architects. The Casa TEC 205 is positioned very with reference to the Chipinque ecological park in Monterrey, an city panorama ruled by way of the Sierra Madre. This home is the primary prize in a bet arranged yearly by way of the Technological College of Monterrey to lift budget for its scholars.
The home design preserves 4 huge extant bushes at the website online. Now embedded in the home, the bushes represent the areas they inhabit. Primary inner areas revel in direct connections to their very own corresponding out of doors areas, each and every related to a unique panorama, a novel personality and high quality of sunshine.
With a view to collect those out of doors areas into the venture, a chain of enormous wall planes that intersect in the home’s heart venture into the encircling out of doors house, shifting incessantly between the inner and the outside of the home. This constructivist meeting lets in the partitions to be learn as impartial, plastic parts, successfully blurring the respect between outside and inside.
We have now at all times admired using colour in Mexico, from its vernacular structure to that of the masters Luis Barragán and Ricardo Legorreta. We have now carried out robust colours to those partitions now not best as a result of we ceaselessly use colour in our paintings, however obviously as reputation and homage to this nice heritage as neatly.
Since the land slopes steeply down from the access stage we had been ready to invert the traditional association, hanging the bed room ground beneath the access ground as a substitute of above. The bedrooms profit from the earth’s thermal mass, bringing herbal freshness to the home and decreasing cooling a lot all over the various months of top temperatures in Monterrey. This association lets in the extra public ground to benefit from the higher perspectives that it’s upper place presents, and offers direct get right of entry to to the lawn for the entire bedrooms.
The roof most sensible is conceived as a big external room, obtainable immediately from the road access, delimited by way of partitions and home windows that body the incredible perspectives of the Monterrey mountains.
Within the inner design the colour has been the primary personality. The pigments carried out to partitions run outside and inside, emphasizing their autonomy and figuring out the nature of each and every house. In some rooms, we have now used wallpapers with colourful work of art to offer colour and design. In others we have now positioned Mexican tiles with geometric patterns and vivid colours.
Additionally designed by way of Moneo Brock are the colourful, geometric carpets and the “PlexiJazz” display screen of translucent acrylic and coloured vinyl, which receives guests within the front corridor and establishes the overall personality of the inner design.
