Modern House Hillside
This interesting modern house in Mexico by Dellekamp Arquitectos is composed of two rectangular volumes embedded into the hillside. Even more interesting was the budgetary constraint the architect had to work under – just $60,000.
This is yet another example of how it’s still possible to build a beautiful modern house that is functional and affordable to a wide-range of people.
Picocool tells us a bit more: The structure is composed of two rectangular volumes partially embedded into the hill. Three sides of the cubes are stucco walls, punctuated by only a few small windows. The fourth side, however, is composed entirely of glass. The home effectively has two opposite fascias, depending upon where it is being viewed from. The interior uses concrete floors throughout and rooftop terraces expand the living areas exponentially. Read post at Picocool.
