Narigua House by P+0 Architecture
Located in the mountains of northern Mexico, the Narigua House is a contemporary residence designed by P+0 Architecture. This is a very unique house because it is settled in a heavily vegetated area without eliminating any trees thus preserving the environment. How come they built a home in a vegetated area without damaging the environment? Simple, the home is lifted above the ground. There are three volumes in total which are all stacked upon one another with different shapes layered in various orientations that form dramatic cantilevers and terraces with stunning views.
From the architects: “We find Narigua House in “El Jonuco” a beautiful place where we enjoy from 360 degrees of spectacular views. This mountain-enclosed neighborhood reminds us of numerous Mexican towns where tall mountains limit the valley where its inhabitants settle. Here, its residents live alongside with the typical vegetation and wildlife found in northern México.”
As we mentioned above, the Narigua House is divided in three different volumes where the first one contains the garage and storage spaces. The second volume houses the entryhall, bedroom and staircase to the lower level while the third volume consists of the kitchen, service and social areas.
On the west side of the house, there are a group of terraces that overlook the focal point of the residence which are the two spectacular mountains.
