A Mexico City-based architecture firm PPAA (Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados) has designed Aculco House for two brothers. Surrounded by nature, the Mexican holiday home of 90m² (969ft²) was completed in 2018.
The place was found by two brothers who love outdoor activities while they were in a rock-climbing trip. The Aculco project was ordered by them a couple of years after they bought the area and reforested it. The architectural project was mainly guided by the qualities of the environment, so we sought to establish a reciprocal dialogue between the construction and its natural surroundings. We went for simplicity, minimal need of maintenance and intimacy with the panorama and the land itself. The house is made of block walls of quarry stone from the area, clay floors, wood and glass. We left every material in its raw state without covering it. The construction´s clear spaces become almost solely a container of views.
