Located in a forested land, the house designed by Tatiana Bilbao mimics the natural surroundings with its reflective facade and roof.
Los Terrenos subtly rises on a forested hillside of Monterey, Mexico. Comprising two volumes dispersed around an organic shaped pool, the project aims to blend into the flora. While one of the volumes houses the living room and the kitchen, the other one has two ensuite bedrooms oriented towards two different views.
The reflective glass facade and roof mimic the surrounding trees and bushes while the terracotta paving feels like an extension of the terrain. The lattice pattern that provides shaded areas in the dining area is also used in the rammed earth walls of the bedrooms. The interaction of natural materials, light and reflection define the spatial experience of Los Terrenos.
