hidden treasure

Located in a residential zone in a highland forested zone San Pedro Garza García, Mexico is a house that effortlessly disappears into the forest. The landscape strategy aimed to respond and mimic the existing flora and fauna. The social area is on the ground level, within a mirrored glass envelope that simultaneously reflects and blurs the lush surrounding; the main room overlooks the treetops; the other bedrooms are underground and built with clay and rammed earth in relation to the topography.

Designed by Tatiana Bilbao, the three main areas have lattice that was designed to adapt according to different spatial connections and structural possibilities: it works as a solid and permeable door, screen partition, and structural wall, and as a semi-open wall that allows ventilation and sunlight bathing the interior spaces.
