Rectangular-Shaped Modern Home Connecting The Inhabitants With The Outdoors
Located in San Angel, a peaceful yet trendy neighbourhood of Mexico City, Cerrada de Cortes is a lovely home designed by Dcpp Arquitectos, perceived as a relaxing retreat, spacious enough to accommodate a numerous family. Despite being surrounded by other residences, the house feels intimate and welcoming. The house opens up to its interior courtyard (the back of the house), which also feels private, due to the high walls bordering the house on both sides. “The main idea for the house was to create an open space on the ground floor for all the public activities, with the possibility of generating a series of different configurations.”
The rectangular-shaped house has two levels: an open arrangement living room incorporating also a kitchen and a dining zone, located on the ground floor and the upper level, accommodating the more private ranges, the bedrooms. The engineers responsible with the project attempted to convey a home that breathes, that is dependably in an immediate relation with the outdoors. The environments are being connected through a covered porch, filling in as a transitory range between the interior and the exterior.
