CBC House by Estudio MMX
The CBC House is a wonderful contemporary residence located in Mexico City. With over 7,600 square feet of living area, this home spans across two stories both of which are embedded within its landscape. It was designed by Estudio MMX, a studio from Mexico whose work you might recognize from our showcase of their CAP House project.
This project, located west of Mexico City, experiments with the diversity of environments experienced when walking through it. For its design we considered wide open spaces to complement the distant views and interlock with the closed and intimate spaces, in sequence, designed to to enjoy the change of scales, heights and chiaroscuros of the site and the house.
The generosity and dignity of architecture and landscape are fundamental components to achieve the intimate and specific programme that a single-family home requires. In this project there are spaces in which unexpected and surprising things are experienced at every moment, making architecture the framework of the daily history that will be written by its inhabitants.
One of the main goals was shaping a continuous garden for which platforms at different levels were created which determined the organization of the house public spaces favoring the connection between the exterior.
The public programme is covered by 2 platforms that form large terraces on the upper levels remaining in close contact with the suspended gardens on these platforms.
