The contemporary home, La Casa en el Bosque, in Mexico City, Mexico, is composed of 2 volumes connected by steel bridges and glass flooring and walls. One of the structures houses the living areas, while the other holds the laundry and service wing.

“The project was built with a mixed system of concrete and metal structure with wooden beams, a system that allowed us to have wide open spans without support,” explained the designers at Grupoarquitectura

The residence was built around existing trees without harming vegetation on the site, and includes other sustainable features such as a waste-water recycling system for irrigation. As you enter the house, you’ll be struck by an overwhelming feeling of height and space. The main living area encircled by glass offers front-row seats to the surrounding nature. “The 2 volumes are closed to the outside and face the gardens to the south and east.” Ample sunlight is brought indoors thanks to large windows and terraces.
