Casa O Cuatro by Migdal Arquitectos located in Mexico City, Mexico. Casa O Cuatro Residence divides it’s social and private areas through the interaction of volumes that express a pure geometry. The upper volume appears to float in space, an effect emphasized by the use of dark stone. The volume becomes more solid without losing its lightness, contrasting with the transparency and light tones of the social area. Sunlight was a key factor in the conception of the project. The glass windows and skylights create large areas, lit by natural sunlight throughout most of the day. Insolation is controlled with the use of cantilevers that generate shade and provide a respite from the direct sun. Although the same materials were used throughout all the spaces, each of them was assigned its own personality, while maintaining a consistent language.
