Sited on a rocky lot in Mexico City, the House on the Stone borrows from the landscape with its solid facade. The home is comprised of a series of stacked boxes. Rising three stories, the rugged cladding gives the modern form a monolithic presence. The interior mimics its stone surroundings but adds a touch of warmth with wood paneling. While the front elevation is mostly closed off, the rear is encased in glass, opening the interior to views of the garden and the highlighting feature — a 15-meter-high stone wall.
