This project consists of a single-family house located on a uniform terrain within a residential area in the State of Mexico. Our intention was to design a house defined by two volumes that are joined through a bridge which is between two strategic patios, which allow the regulation of temperature inside by means of cross ventilation. The larger patio was is the heart of the house and the main visual, housing a Guava tree planted on a pot/bench. The secondary patio was conceived as an open-air dining room with direct communication with the kitchen, which is surrounded by two solid volumes.
