|BGP Arquitectura - GDL1 House in Guadalajara, Mexico|
|Sunday, 30 December 2007 11:11|
The lower level hosts the private areas of the house as well as the main entrance and vestibule. It is placed across the site, dividing the lot to produce two open spaces. The open space on the higher side is converted into a private courtyard covered with white gravel, while the one on the lower side, facing the gorgeous view, is transformed into a garden, a terrace, as well as a swimming Pool.
The intersection of the two volumes generates a double-height vestibule topped with a skylight. A reflective pond that extends to the outside occupies part of this vestibule. The upper floor is an open space with fenestration on two sides. The dinning room has its floor made of glass, providing more transparency between the upper floor and the vestibule and strengthening the visual connection between the two floors as well as the fluidity of the space. Finally, the dinning room opens up into a beautiful roof garden, covered with a wooden floor.
