New York | Tijuana, MX
Located on a 70,000 sq. ft. site in Tijuana, México, Privet is comprised by 18 single family homes that are designed to create unity and harmony in they're blending of building and landscape. There is a park in which people gather, which was one of the main objectives of the project, to create a community, it includes art installations by Jorge Mendez Blake and Emanuel Tovar.
Due to the outburst of violence that has engulfed the city in the last couple of years, Tijuana is an endless cityscape of garage doors, fences and gates, which is why
the divisions between the houses in Privet are made by vertical green walls of succulent plants.
The houses range range from 2400 sq. ft. to 2650 sq. ft. and the program is similar in all of them. On the first floor is a dining room, living room and kitchen with a family room, and on the second floor is a t.v. room and 3 bedrooms each one with they're own bathroom.
