Mexican practice R-Zero Studio, has designed and built the ‘H24 house’ in Mexico City, Mexico.
The residence solves the lack of contact with its environment by producing its own context, unfolding itself around a self-created landscape.
The access through a triple-height patio wrapped in glass and cement blocks frames the sky as a landscape above. By night, this landscape is reproduced on the walls of the main stairway with a set of lights that reminds of a constellation.
The inward facing glass walls of an L-shaped plan opens the activity occurring inside to the outdoor green garden.
The courtyard is wrapped by transparent walls.
The use of raw materials (cement blocks, steel, wood, glass and concrete on the façade) and the planning of the project erase the limits between interior and exterior, merging as a whole the built with the un-built.
