On a rural plot in Mexico, Weber Arquitectos has designed a collection of five residences to be immersed in the forest landscape. In order to preserve the site's centuries-old pine trees and dense vegetation, each dwelling is spread throughout three volumes linked by two interior courtyards. The first houses a living room with a fireplace and an abundance of glazing while a sliding glass door expands the room out to a terrace to further connect the inside to the surrounding nature. A second unit contains four bedrooms including a master with a bathroom topped by a glass ceiling that looks toward the treetops. The final volume features a kitchen, pantry, laundry room, and utility room. Throughout the entire interior, a natural palette of wood, glass, steel, and concrete creates a light, inviting atmosphere enveloped in forest scenery.
