House on a Slope

House-on-a-Slope1

Dellekamp Arquitectos designed this 130 square meter house located on a rural area near Mexico City.

The house uses standard materials and solutions, as well as a simple structure. The remaining three facades are solid to protect the interior from strong winds and assure privacy from the street.

The slope is reflected on the glassed facade in the underground area, continuing the vertical circulation that follows the inclination of the site. To emphasize the diagonal tensions of the topography and the house, the rectangles making up the facades turn into triangles simply by painting them in two colors.

  1. Usually, with a house on a slope you see the foundation opposing the slope. It’s nice to see a different way although I expect it to slide like a sled. Gives me some angst.
