Cascading Mexican House Embedded In A Hilltop Setting

The Toucan House, a new 400 m² single-family home owned by Taller Hector Barrosa, who lives in Mexico City, is located on the surrounding hill and cascades elegantly over the steeply sloping terrain in a series of four terraced terraces. The rectilinear plot with a slope of 14 m presented a challenge that resulted in the strategic placement of the first volume, a garage and a shop, to form a private facade on the lower street level, with the three remaining volumes merging into the undulating Nestle the terrain behind Maximize the panoramic view of Valle. The pavilions are “interrupted” by landscaped gardens, terraces, balconies and patios, which dissolve the boundaries between architecture and landscape. The interior design is modern with lots of local wood to blend with the outside.
