Casa V is designed by Serrano Monjaraz Arquitectos in Mexico City.
The main design motive of the house is the natural light. So, the location(building lot) and design of the house was defined by the importance of natural light in the project. The facades were located according to the movement of light and shadows to help enhance the interior design.
The interior and exterior spaces of the house are integrated by the nature elements such as exposed concrete, woods(both natural and with the glossy finish), glass and steel. This choise allows low maintenance requirements as well as the adequate aging of the space with the natural patina that will acquire with time.
The long, narrow swimming pool in the yard arouses a feeling ilke a red carpet walkway to the house. At the same time, it is a complement to the geometric forms of the house with its rectangular shape.
