Stación-ARquitectura were asked to make the building as basic as possible, but to also add some homely features for the residents. “The challenge was to achieve this with the least number of materials and with rational and intelligent use of them,” architect César Guerrer.

The architects planned a bare concrete construction with minimal detailing around doors and windows. “The materials and construction processes were generated by a direct local workforce made on site,” said Guerrero, “so the house combines industrial raw materials with local artisanal workmanship.”

Three bedrooms and a study are lined up along the eastern side of the house. Each one opens out to a small narrow private patio, plus the bedrooms all have their own ensuite bathrooms.

The opposite side of the house has an open-plan layout with kitchen at one end, dining area at the centre and living area at the far end. Glazing surrounds two sides of the space, so residents can open the room out to the courtyard.

Rectangular skylights pierce the roof in various rooms, bringing slices of light into the house during the day.

Here’s some more information from S-AR:

Casa 2G – S-AR stación-ARquitectura

Casa 2G is a 360 square meter single family home designed by S-AR, an architectural firm based in Monterrey, Mexico. The house was designed as a sanctuary from the surrounding urban environment, as well as a series of memorable architectural spaces with the people that live in them at their conceptual core.

Casa 2G creates sensory experiences and moments that enrich its inhabitant’s daily lives, thanks in part to its sparse materiality and handmade features, which pay tribute to the artisan work of local craftsmen. The nature of this space contrasts with false ideas of human progress in a world dominated by appearances and trends.

By taking a morning tour of Casa 2-G, the viewers are able to experience those special everyday moments spent in the house. As the windows open, we take in the natural changes in the environment, and we witness the dialogue between the house and the natural light as it evolves throughout the day. Come nightfall, the house opens up its spaces so that the light from the fire can fill us with peace as it vibrates over the raw surfaces of its walls. In Casa 2G, ordinary routine is pleasantly interrupted, and transformed into memorable moments of harmony and spiritual consciousness.

Proposed as a basic house, the project is a simple rectangular volume with a courtyard that divides the social from the private area. Located in a residential area, the volume starts few meters behind the line of the street creating a courtyard for pedestrian and vehicular access.

A concrete wall with a door is to simplify the design of the facade of the house, making it as basic as possible. However, this lack of openings to the street, contrasts with a wide open interior space that visually connects the whole social area with the central patio, the backyard and the Sierra Madre Mountains filling the interior spaces with light and natural ventilation and establishing a strong dialogue with the landscape.
