in developing ‘casa CBC’, estudio MMX considered the generosity and dignity of architecture and landscape as fundamental components to achieve an intimate and specific program for the family. open spaces that complement the distant views interlock with the closed, private rooms to ‘enjoy the change of scales, heights and chiaroscuros of the site and the house.’ unexpected and surprising elements, such as wide and narrow spaces and windows, make architecture the framework of the daily history that will be written by its inhabitants.exterior view of estudio MMX CBC house in mexico city 

 

 

one of the main goals of the studio was shaping a continuous garden, where platforms at different levels determine the organization of the 708 sqm house. these open platforms favor the connection between interior and exterior, creating a continuous dialogue with the surrounding landscape. the public program is defined by two main platforms, which form large terraces on the upper levels while remaining in close contact with the suspended gardens on these platforms.
