Casas Izar

Taller ADG

A pair of two-story houses that are exceptionally efficient in terms of energy, due to the use of natural light as well as rainfall. They are located on a couple of adjacent lots that are also steep, which is ideal for achieving the best views of the Valle de Bravo lake from the top floors.

The materials used in construction as well as in finishes, along with a functional design, make sure the project is in perfect harmony with nature. Green roofing, local stone, and the façade lattice made out of specially-treated wooden slats all contribute to the houses full integration into the landscape.

Entry to the complex occurs through an access plaza, with bodies of water and vegetation that gives continuity with the natural environment.

Once inside, private areas take up the lower floor, while social areas take up the upper floor. A skylight made out of locally-sourced stone and vegetation connects both stories.

The social area have a living room, next to it the dining room and a kitchen for special events. Finally, there is a covered terrace, with space for secondary, open living and dining rooms. Next is an open terrace with a swimming lane.

On the lower level we have a private space with a family room and a play area. A hallway that surrounds the skylight leads to a gym as well as the bedrooms. On the lots’ lower sections there is a common area with terraces, swimming pool, gym, dressing rooms and a spa.
