With a surge of minimalist concrete dwellings popping up across the globe, Brutalism is seeing a revival and the Ecoscopic House reminds us why. The monolithic masterpiece sits at the foot of the Sierra Madre mountains outside of Mexico's Monterrey city. Its sculpted exterior was conceived from the analysis of the sun, wind, surface runoff, and native species, and was formed by elemental materials including concrete, steel, and glass. On the interior, its 7,000-square-foot interior is spread across three angular stories. The ground floor is a spacious main living area containing a kitchen and dining room with an interior garden. Geometric voids on the southern end frame in views of the mountains and also open out to a covered terrace overlooking Huajuco Canyon. The upper story consists of three bedrooms with patios while the lowest level can be converted into a home theater or game room.
