Two separate volumes of the Tepozcuautla House in Mexico City are connected by daylit glass and steel bridges that create the sensation of walking among treetops. Architecture firm grupoarquitectura designed the house using a mix of concrete and metal structures with wooden beams, which allowed for the creation of wide open spaces.
The house consists of two concrete volumes-one housing services and the other housing the main living areas. Steel bridges connect the two bodies and feature glass floors that augment the feeling of being outside. The entire structural system of the house is exposed, creating a kind of exoskeleton. Thanks to how the volumes are oriented, the house creates thermally optimal conditions.
A wastewater recycling system and state-of-the-art, water purification filters add to the sustainability of the building, while automated electrical systems, lighting, audio, video, security, heating and blinds, enhance the comfort of this magnificent living space.
