This house was designed for a young family in search of a holiday retreat outside the city. Designed by Elías Rizo Arquitectos, this unique vacation house is located near Tapalpa in a secluded forested area. The goal of this project was to redefine the concept of the typical country house so common in this region. The house adapts to its surrounding through two volumes that define the usage areas. The first volume is where all daytime activities happen: the entrance, dining room, kitchen, living room, and terrace. This volume is elevated, generating a dialog with the surrounding forest. The bedrooms are connected by a hallway with a horizontal window that frames the forest outside. The area that connects both volumes is articulated through an entrance hall built with walls of flagstone and wood. These regional materials generate a feeling of absolute respect for the surrounding environment.
