Casa la roca residence in Mexico designed by RRZ Arquitectos

Situated on a rocky hill in Mexico. Casa la roca residence designed by Mexican architecture studio RRZ Arquitectos.

Project description by architect:

The terrain is in the center of a Jack Nicklaus 27-hole golf course, inside a 6-hectare Macro lot for only 10 houses and this lot has an individual surface of 7,500 m². The land is formed by a large formation of rocks 100 meters wide and up to 30 meters high, dominating the view of 24 greens and the landscape at 270 degrees, both from the banks of the city, as well as the countryside, valley and mountains of the surroundings. 90% of the land used for the floor of the house is solid rock.

The concept of this residence was to create a dominant house with personality, which sits and is suspended from the top of the great rock, the residence should be bold but light.
100% respecting the environment and its rock formations, incorporating them into the project as much as possible.

The house was designed at the top of the rock and on the exited edge. The construction on the upper floor has clear spans of 26 meters, with cantliver beams not greater than 70 cm. and seeking never to have support in the corners or in the perimeter, in this way the house would look fragile, light and suspended.

All this large volume of upper floor rests on the rock at one end and at the other end through a tucked wall-column and lined with black glass so that it disappears at night and becomes little noticeable and light by the day. In the ground level, the independent social area was planned with a pool, terrace and a fire pit flown over a rock.

The residence has a 90 meters long facade getting the best view in the entire project as well as the proper orientation for the indoor climate. 

The house distribution is designed to be very comfortable despite its size and has a heart with the services of the house: garages, services, kitchen, dining room, family room, terrace breakfast and a great garden out of own risks of rocky formations.

In one wing of the house are the bedrooms each with a terrace and with a great view and in the other the social areas leaving them in the most privileged place of view with a panorama of 270 degrees.

All the finishes of the house were carefully selected to have the sensation of incorporating the land into the house, the selected colors were intended to blend in with the environment and leaving only the place to speak for itself.

The house has facilities that respect the environment such as water recycling, solar energy for water heating and electricity generation, advanced systems, but easy to use: lighting controls, curtains, sound, video, surveillance, locks, equipment pumping, automation, etc.
