Located west of Mexico City, the CBC House offsets the urban landscape by focusing on lush garden views. Estudio MMX designed the L-shaped volume to wrap around a multi-level terrace. Heavily planted with shrubs and trees, these exterior patios create intimate outdoor living spaces for both relaxing and entertaining among the vibrant greenery. To connect the interior to the garden, walls of glazing bring in the verdant views, along with a generous amount of natural light, for both floors. The exterior's clean silhouette is made from poured concrete. A yellow tint gives the cement the warmth of wood, adding a soft complement to the surrounding vegetation.
