Private House in Chihuahua, Mexic

Private House in Chihuahua, Mexic

What do you do if you live in a place where temperatures go down to -10C during winters and over 40C in the summer? How about a private house like this one in Chihuahua? Developed by Mexican-based architects from Productora, the house is part of a golf club community in the desert, northern part of the country. Hence why it’s partially buried into the mountain slope to take advantage of the soil’s thermal mass. When looked from the outside it’s perceived as a single height volume, but when you get inside things change. Organized around a series of patios and roof openings that provide light and ventilation, the interior is minimalist styled with contemporary furniture and large open spaces. An amazing concept, isn’t it?

    They made good use of the available space. Considering it’s in the
    desert, it looks great!
