Chain + Siman Designs a Meditative Weekend Retreat Near Mexico City
“Materials were chosen to mitigate the visual impact of the house among the trees and to generate a project in harmony with the environment.” The central structure contains the double-height living and dining areas; the primary bedroom/study is to the left and the kitchen plus service areas to the right. (A standalone annex houses guest bedrooms.) The gable-roofed volumes, which connect to large patios, are faced in floor-to-ceiling glass on one side to take in as much light—and views of the property—as possible. Stone, iron, and millwork create a rustic envelope for the 5,600-square-foot interiors, outfitted with tactile furnishings and rich textiles that lend modernity and warmth. The woodsy area can get cold in the evenings, so the residence is well insulated and boasts radiant heating and fireplaces to keep things cozy no matter the weather.
