Striking Four-Level Modern Mountain Home in Jalisco, Mexico

Striking Four-Level Modern Mountain Home in Jalisco, Mexico

Disobeying the principles of traditional mountain architecture, Agraz Arquitectos envisioned a highly contemporary residence in the Santa Anita Golf Club of Tlajomulco in Jalisco, Mexico. Built on a site with a highly accentuated slope, the project is structured on four levels: “the first one for the automobiles, the next one for social areas (kitchen, living and dinning rooms), third for main bedroom next to family room, and last, a fourth one destined for boy and girl bedrooms which have the most privileged views due to their location in the highest peak of the terrain.

The four levels are connected through a central stairway, but an elevator was also added a practical feature to the overall design. One of the most spectacular interior of the Mountain House is its wine cellar, perfectly integrated into a rocky mountain carving, yet displaying elegant finishes.

    Nice use of texture in the design: the wine cellar wall, the stair risers, and the play between grass and hardscape outside all add a dimensionality that many modern homes forgo.
