dosa studio + rojkind arquitectos' house in mexico combines four cubes + open-air circulation

dosa studio and rojkind arquitectos have completed casa para rosario, a house for a family dedicated to the cultivation of plants in ocuilán, mexico, which comprises a series of four individual cubes connected via open-air circulation. each built on a different height and with its own identity, the cubes are connected to each other through large wooden openings that flow into a central courtyard.

dosa studio and rojkind arquitectos have built the house for a family of three, a couple and their four-year-old son, whose dedication to the cultivation of plants translates into the design of the project. the architects have emphasized the surrounding nature through visual opening towards the trees and magenta flowers of the bougainvillea. exterior circulation comprises various passages, which seek to have a constant relationship with each of the four cubes. with a total floor area of 50 sqm, casa para rosario embraces interior and exterior spaces with the same importance, using nature as much as built elements to define spatial boundaries.
