This contemporary compact residence is located in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. It was a project designed by Ze Arquitectura and it’s a very functional house. The process began by searching for a central backyard that would later become the background for all the interior spaces. The owners wanted to be able to enjoy a tranquil and pleasant view from their bedrooms so the backyard was an important part of the plan.
The interior of the house is very functionally divided. On the first level were all the public spaces. Here are the vestibule, a double height living and dining room, a library, the kitchen a family room and a wood workshop. This way all the public spaces were gathered in one place and the users don’t have to joggle between two levels during the day.
On the second floor are the private rooms of the house. There’s a private family room, 3 bedroom , all with walk-in closets and bathrooms, and a laundry. This is a more quiet area, a place where the owners usually come to relax, sleep or have some alone time. Throughout the whole house there are hardwood and marble floors as well as marble details on some walls and on the chimney. Marble stones were also use on the façade. There’s also an outdoor pool linked to the house.
