in mexico city, local practice DCPP arquitectos has completed a two-storey dwelling whose design is based on rectangular proportions. totaling 325 square meters, ‘campestre 107’ is located in the city’s san angel inn district, with a bold façade presented to the passing street. the building’s plot measures 11 meters in width and 33 meters in length. this ratio has guided the design of the property, whose built structure only represents a third of the available site.

DCPP organized the residence around two external patios, which separate public areas of the home from more private zones. contained within a T-shaped plan, regular public spaces are articulated around the first patio, where a hall, a living room, a dining room, and a kitchen form the first part of the dwelling. in contrast, the private spaces — such as the master bedroom and the family room — can be found at the rear. the majority of living accommodation is found at ground level, while the upper storey contains rooms for guests.
