Surrounded by ancient pines in the State of Mexico. the Cinco Casas used careful planning to create privacy on less than two acres. The collection of five modern homes sit horizontal on a natural slope. Minimal disruption to the environment conserved all but 1,200 square meters of forest, allowing them to seclude every structure with the surrounding nature. Crafted from wood, glass, steel and concrete, each residence is composed of three areas — a living room and terrace, four bedrooms, and a service area. Glazed walls, doors, and roofs open the interior up to every inch of the lush greenery.
