Casa MM is sited at the foot of a mountain range that draws in tourists to its nearby trails. To combat the high traffic area, the dwelling uses a wedge design. The narrow end of the home is oriented at the paths while the roofline inclines toward the peaks, taking the focus off the visiting hikers and placing it on the surrounding scenery. Its sloping profile mimics the rolling terrain while the concrete and stone facade complements the rugged environment. External materials are left exposed on the interior and are met with rich wood tones. The combination creates a modern atmosphere that balances the views of the rural landscapes.
