Sited on a steep ravine in Mexico, the CAB House is inspired by basaltic formations found in the mountains. The home is comprised of five black brick volumes and like the volcanic rock, its dark forms cascade down the heavily wooded terrain. Living harmoniously with the landscape, the towers are nestled into the hillside at varying levels creating a series of garden terraces and patios throughout the exterior. Internally, large glazed panels enable a connection between the interior and these lush outdoor spaces. In contrast to the exterior's shadowy facade, polished concrete floors, warm wood ceilings, and a neutral palette develop bright, airy living spaces to admire the verdant views.
