Many homes are made of concrete, steel, glass, and wood. GG House is defined by them. The distinct butterfly shape of the concrete roof breaks the house up into two zones, one private, and one social. On the private side are two bedrooms, an office, and a master suite, while the social side is home to the open living, dining, and kitchen areas. Polished steel walls wrap around both sections, with an entryway in the middle that's connected to the rest of the home by stained cedar panels that also form the elongated decks. Retractable glass walls allow for selective separation from the outdoors while providing views of the volcano Colima, and the polished concrete floors serve as an inverse reflection of the raw roof above.
