Casa Camino is a project belonging to Mexico City-based studio Parque Humano and located in Chihuahua, Mexico. Its architecture had to be adapted to the semi-arid climate. According to the architects, the residence “occupies a natural ledge in the hillside, facing the view to the east and turning its back to the winds coming from the north, we have privileged the views to the city and the panorama hills of the valley. The house has a mixed structure of steel and concrete, plus outer faces of stone to create a rapport with the surroundings. The inside walls are in white stucco, while the ceilings lined with wood. The house is developed as one floating volume and a semi buried podium“. Structured on two levels, the residence accommodates the living room, dining spaces, kitchen, studio and the master bedroom on the main floor. The basement hosts three bedrooms and a multipurpose room. Find its layout functional?
