Living Amidst Forest Glazed Tepozcuautla House

Located in the hills of Mexico City, the Tepozcuautla house consists of two concrete bodies – one for services and one for most of the main areas of the house – connected by steel bridges and a cantilevered staircase. The stairs and bridges give the illusion of walking on the vegetation without affecting the surrounding flora for maximum sustainability. The bodies of the house itself are protected from the outside elements, while at the same time opening up to gardens and terraces bathed in sunlight. The support system of the structure consists of concrete, metal and wooden beams, all of which allow wide spans within the house, while the skeleton of the building remains fully visible.
