AMASArquitectos | 墨西哥La Reserva住宅
The housing architecture from the late 19th century and the early the 20th century, at least in Xalapa, was conceived based on a simple form, with a justified distribution of spaces around a courtyard.
What happens in the exterior is different, the street on which the project is located is highly transited by vehicles the majority of the day, which represents a visual and auditory contamination. For this reason, we decided to create an introspective house using a lattice, both in the facade as well as in the interior courtyard, which plays an important role in the design of the project, to a degree of being essential for its identity. To speak of the house La Reserva is to refer to the colour yellow, the choice of this colour together with the colour white was not accidental, it is an amalgam that makes the space more throbbing and alive. The result is a house that from the outside seems sealed, but at the moment of entering it, the surprise of the visitors is full of nuances, textures, lights and shadows.
