DE­SI­GNED BY MO­NEO BROCK, a prac­ti­ce foun­ded in New York in 1993 by the Spa­niard Be­lén Mo­neo and the Ame­ri­can Jeff Brock, this hou­se stands in a suburb clo­se to the Chi­pin­que eco­lo­gi­cal park, sou­th of Mon­ter­rey, whe­re the land­sca­pe starts to be do­mi­na­ted by the moun­tains of the Sier­ra Ma­dre Orien­tal. It is im­me­dia­te­ly evi­dent that na­tu­re is an in­te­gral part of the design, in the fir­st pla­ce owing to the de­ci­sion to pre­ser­ve four lar­ge trees (th­ree wal­nu­ts and a Ja­pa­ne­se pri­vet) that we­re al­rea­dy gro­wing on the slo­ping plot of land now oc­cu­pied by a hou­se whi­ch ex­tends to al­mo­st 500 squa­re me­tres. The trees ha­ve been in­cor­po­ra­ted in­to the ar­chi­tec­tu­re, de­ter­mi­ning the ar­ti­cu­la­tion of the spa­ces and sha­ding ter­ra­ces and pa­tios that of­fer a va­rie­ty of views. Ea­ch in­ter­nal spa­ce is con­nec­ted wi­th

zio­ne con il suo cor­ri­spet­ti­vo ester­no: sul­le aree ver­di al pia­no ter­re­no si apro­no, per esem­pio, tut­te le stan­ze da let­to, si­tua­te in ma­nie­ra po­co con­ven­zio­na­le al di sot­to del li­vel­lo dell’in­gres­so, con il prin­ci­pa­le van­tag­gio di sfrut­ta­re l’iner­zia ter­mi­ca del ter­re­no ca­pa­ce di con­ser­va­re una tem­pe­ra­tu­ra fre­sca an­che nei me­si più cal­di. Ai pia­ni su­pe­rio­ri tro­via­mo gli am­bien­ti de­di­ca­ti all’in­te­ra­zio­ne fa­mi­lia­re, pri­ma tra tut­ti la gran­de ter­raz­za di 171 me­tri qua­dra­ti sul tetto, cui si ac­ce­de di­ret­ta­men­te an­che dal­la stra­da: lo spa­zio, che com­pren­de una pi­sci­na e un’area per la gri­glia­ta, è de­li­mi­ta­to da am­pie pa­re­ti dal­le tin­te vi­va­ci su cui si apro­no var­chi che in­cor­ni­cia­no il pae­sag­gio cir­co­stan­te; la lo­ro for­te iden­ti­tà, qua­si scul­to­rea, le ren­de ele­men­ti in­di­pen­den­ti al di là del­la lo­ro fun­zio­ne di in­ter­se­zio­ne tra spa­zi in­door e out­door. L’uso in­ten­so del co­lo­re, ti­pi­co dell’ar­chi­tet­tu­ra po­po­la­re mes­si­ca­na, si pro­iet­ta an­che all’interno, am­pli­fi­ca­to dall’uso del­la carta da pa­ra­ti e del­le tra­di­zio­na­li pia­strel­le a mo­ti­vi geo­me­tri­ci. Il ca­rat­te­re de­ci­so dell’in­te­rior design si de­fi­ni­sce an­che gra­zie a una se­le­zio­ne di ar­re­di fir­ma­ti da gran­di no­mi in­ter­na­zio­na­li co­me la gran­de lam­pa­da a so­spen­sio­ne Wi

All the be­drooms, for exam­ple, open on­to the green areas of the ground floor; they are un­con­ven­tio­nal­ly si­tua­ted be­low the le­vel of the en­tran­ce, whi­ch al­lo­ws them to ex­ploit the ther­mal iner­tia of the ground in or­der to keep the tem­pe­ra­tu­re cool even in the hot­te­st mon­ths. On the up­per floors we find spa­ces de­vo­ted to fa­mi­ly in­te­rac­tion, in par­ti­cu­lar a lar­ge 171-squa­re-me­tre ter­ra­ce on the roof, to whi­ch there is al­so di­rect ac­cess from the street. This spa­ce, whi­ch has a swim­ming pool and a bar­be­cue area, is boun­ded by am­ple walls in vi­vid co­lours wi­th ope­nings that fra­me the sur­roun­ding land­sca­pe. The strong and al­mo­st sculp­tu­ral cha­rac­ter of the­se walls ma­kes them in­de­pen­dent ele­men­ts, abo­ve and beyond their func­tion of an in­ter­sec­tion bet­ween in­door and out­door areas. The in­ten­se use of co­lour, ty­pi­cal of Me­xi­can ver­na­cu­lar ar­chi­tec­tu­re, ex­tends to the in­si­de, whe­re it is am­pli­fied by the wall­pa­per and the tra­di­tio­nal ti­les wi­th geo­me­tric pat­terns. The strong cha­rac­ter of the in­te­rior design is de­ter­mi­ned in part by a se­lec­tion of pie­ces of fur­ni­tu­re crea­ted by na­mes of in­ter­na­tio­nal re­pu­te, su­ch as the lar­ge Wi­re­flow Chan­de­lier de­si­gned by Arik Le­vy for Vi­bia, Pa­tri­cia Ur­quio­la’s Roll arm­chairs and the si­de ta­ble
