Mirror House in the Mexican Forest Thickets
Located on a wooded hill in the suburbs of Monterrey, Mexico, the residence of Los Terrenos was designed by the architects Tatiana Bilbao Estudio. The residential complex consists of two buildings with a total area of 480 square meters. Volumes are arranged in opposite corners of the square portion in the center of which is an organic form pool.
The strategy of architects consisted in striving to match the surrounding nature and in some way imitate it. Therefore, the volume containing the social areas of the house has a shell of mirror glass, which reflects a lush environment, dissolving the building in the natural environment, while letting it inside the space. The bedrooms are located in a volume partly recessed into the surface of the plot.
