Text description provided by the architects. The house is located in a development north of the metropolitan area of Mexico City, in a lot of stone which has an 18 x 32 meters and presents a slope of 50%. The architectural program was resolved on three levels, the first semi-fitted level where the services are located, the second level is at the garden level and that is where the public spaces of the house are located, finally the third one seems to float above the rest of the volumes.

At the bottom of the land next to the garden, a 15-meter-high stone wall rises and was the perfect setting to finish off the interior views of the house towards the immediate surroundings.

The general volume is presented with a double intention; On the one hand, on the front façade, a series of overlapping boxes with minimal openings are erected in order to provide as much privacy as possible; on the other, on the rear façade, the greatest possible transparency towards the great stone wall was sought.
