House on a slope

This 130 sq. meter house is located on a rural area of autoconstructed dwellings, near Mexico City. Built with a budget of USD $60,000, the house uses standard materials and solutions, as well as a simple structure. The remaining three facades are solid to protect the interior from strong winds and assure privacy from the street. The slope is reflected on the glassed facade in the underground area, continuing the vertical circulation that follows the inclination of the site. To emphasize the diagonal tensions of the topography and the house, the rectangles making up the facades turn into triangles simply by painting them in two colors.
