The Torres House by GLR Arquitectos / Gilberto L. Rodríguez

Credits by Dave on the contemporist November 3rd, 2009

GLR Arquitectos have designed the Torres House in Monterrey, Mexico.

Built Area:
5,942 sq ft

Project Team:
Bernardo Chapa
Joaquín Jenis
Tomas Güereña
Diana Guerra
Eduardo Fuentes

Photography:
Jorge Taboada

Description:

Set high in the Sierra Madre mountain range, the Torres House seeks to establish an intimate contact with the natural environment in which it is located. Discreetly open towards the street, the house is accessed by crossing over a fountain from which a huge oak tree emerges, impressive both for its size and its beauty. Once on the porch, a grand mural-like door -constructed of marble, wood and steel- welcomes the visitor.

Inside, the entry hall merges into an area of contrasting materials consisting of Santo Tomas marble and volcanic stone walls. From this area there is a visual continuity with the rest of the house and with the garden that was left in its natural state as a small oak forest.

In the living room, conceived almost as a glass box, one can experience the view to the Sierra Madre peaks in the distance and the garden near by. Owing to its location within the mountain, where winters can get really cold, there is a fireplace for the family to gather around in the evenings.

From the dining room and the media room, one can access the roof terrace and enjoy the splendid views of the Sierra Madre as well as of the city of Monterrey. Here the musical background of the sounds of nature is in sharp contrast to the roar of the city below.

Full description after the photos….

Mexican Architecture

Mexican architecture offers a large and well recognized tradition of excellent architecture, just among architects and specialists, but such recognition was not the same thing among the public or clients . . .

Nevertheless mexican architectura just begun to be more popular and well accepted among the general public and not just among specialists.

There are lots of youg talented architects, like Fernando Romero, Tatiana Bilbao, Andrés Flores, Juan Carlos Baumgartner, Michel Rojkind, Derek Dellegkamp, Gerardo Broissin, PRODUCTORA DF, AT 103, ARQUITECTURA 911 SC and many other rising stars
